Bill Gates predicts an epidemic that will kill more than 30 million people in 15 years...
One of the richest men on Earth dropped a horrible prediction a few weeks ago at a security conference in Munich. Bill Gates said that the bioterrorism of the future could take the lives of tens of millions of people in a short time. Gates, who has spent the last 20 years founding a global campaign for health, said: "We ignore the link between health security and international security at our peril." The co-founder of Microsoft and philanthropist who has spent billions to improve the health of the world added:
"The next epidemic could originate on the computer screen of a terrorist intent on using genetic engineering to create a synthetic version of the smallpox virus ... or a super contagious and deadly strain of the flu. " US and UK intelligence agencies have said that ISIS has been trying to develop biological weapons at its bases in Syria and Iraq.

However, they have downplayed the Arab threat, commenting that terrorists should have people with the necessary skills, good laboratories, and a calm environment to be able to generate such evils. The truth is that the threat of bioterrorism has become more real over the past decade, particularly in the last 5 years, with changes in molecular biology that make the development of this type of weapons more accessible.
Gates, making his first appearance at the Munich security conference, commented: "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."

The co-founder of Microsoft continued: "It’s hard to get your mind around a catastrophe of that scale, but it happened not that long ago. In 1918, a particularly virulent and deadly strain of flu killed between 50 million and 100 million people. You might be wondering how real these doomsday scenarios really are. The fact that a deadly global pandemic has not occurred in recent history shouldn’t be mistaken for evidence that a deadly pandemic will not occur in the future..."
"And even if the next pandemic isn’t on the scale of the 1918 flu, we would be wise to consider the social and economic turmoil that might ensue if something like Ebola made its way into urban centers," Gates added. He also spoke about advances in biotechnology, new vaccines, and drugs that could, in turn, prevent the spread of these diseases.

"Most of the things we need to do to protect against a naturally occurring pandemic are the same things we must prepare for an intentional biological attack. Getting ready for a global pandemic is every bit as important as nuclear deterrence and avoiding a climate catastrophe. Innovation, cooperation, and careful planning can dramatically mitigate the risks presented by each of these threats" said Gates.
According to this billionaire, the international community should prepare for deadly epidemics in the same way that the military does for war.
"This includes germ games and other preparedness exercises so we can better understand how diseases will spread, how people will respond in a panic and how to deal with things like overloaded highways and communications systems." The Bill and Melinda Gates…

…Foundation published a survey in which 71% of British citizens between 16 and 75 years were more concerned about infections in the population by viruses such as Ebola or Zika than in wars with other nations…
Only two-thirds of the population said that the war worried them, while 83% said that the terrorist attacks were a real threat at the present time.
