In 2015, Vox asked Bill Gates what worried him. And the founder of Microsoft, who is now a billionaire philanthropist, revealed that a pandemic is top of his list.
Now, five years on, and we’re in the middle of a pandemic. Which makes Bill Gates look like Nostradamus. But then he has studied public health issues for years.
A lot of what Gates says in this video is now coming to pass. COVID-19 is a flu-like illness that is spreading through the population, and killing thousands as it goes.
COVID-19 has hit the world 100 years since the Spanish Flu, and while health facilities are much better, because of the way we travel, the spread could be far worse.
