Bill Gates nearly predicted COVID-19 pandemic in 2015; now he has 2 more prophecies

Team Udayavani, Feb 6, 2021, 12:42 PM IST

In a TED talk in 2015, Bill Gates had said, “If anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it’s likely to be a highly infectious virus rather than a war.”

Five years later his statement has become a reality going by the name COVID-19.

In a recent interview to a YouTube channel, he said he is apprehensive of two more global mass destructive events anytime in the future along with claiming that there will be more pandemics and the world will not be able to handle it.

Prediction 1 – Climate Change
“… climate change. Every year that would be a death toll even greater than we have had in this pandemic,” Gates says in the interview. Adding that this second crisis is something that people don’t like to talk about much.

Prediction 2 – Bio-terrorism
“Somebody who wants to cause damage could engineer a virus and that means the cost, the chance of running into this is more than the naturally-caused epidemics like the current one,” Gates tells the interviewer.
