Coronavirus is wreaking havoc all over the world. The number of deaths is increasing day by day. It is not that no one ever knew about this virus. In 2015, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates predicted the virus infection, but his prediction was not taken seriously. The result of which is in front of everyone today. In an interview given to Netflix in 2019, Gates also said that this epidemic will start from the Chinese market and the whole world will be the victim of this, which is seen to be true today.
In the year 2015, he said that after a few years a global epidemic will spread, it will kill millions of people and will also affect the world economy in a big way. This virus will kill more people than other people killed in the second world war and will cause other harm. He said these things during an event in 2015. At present 2 lakh 36 thousand people are infected with the coronavirus worldwide, more than 9,700 people have died due to its grip. These days, the situation of the world has become like the second world war and the Spanish flu spread in the year 1918. Along with this, he also said that if the rich countries took immediate steps in this direction and prepared on a war footing, they would be able to protect themselves from the infection of coronavirus, otherwise the consequences would be fatal.
Gates further said that if anything kills more than 10 million people in the next few decades, it is likely to be a highly contagious virus rather than a war. Not so many deaths can be caused by missiles but by germs. Gates said that despite the recent Ebola virus outbreak, the possibility of a global pandemic was ignored by governments. Ebola killed more than 11,000 people in West Africa between 2013 and 2016, mainly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
