Bill Gates “Prophesied” in 2017 Of Epidemic That Could Kill Over 30 Million People

By

Bill Gates is a smart guy who knows something about global health. So when he gives a grave warning about a potential catastrophe, it’s a good idea to listen.

At the Munich Security Conference in Germany (2017), the man who tops the Forbes richest person in the world list and is co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation said:

Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more than 30 million people in less than a year.

And they say there is a reasonable probability the world will experience such an outbreak in the next 10 to 15 years”.

Notice that this was at a security conference and not a health meeting. Therefore, he could have focused on some other issue such as nuclear weapons or climate change.

But Gates chose to focus on infectious disease threats (whether starting naturally or used as a bioterrorist weapon) for good reason.

Our society is in need of a good wake-up call and slap in the face.

What do you think? Did he see the coronavirus coming?
