Bill Gates Tells World To Brace For ‘Man-Made Pandemic More Brutal Than Covid’

The self-appointed global health czar told an audience at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, Australia that the world must listen to his advice very carefully and follow his instructions to the letter, otherwise there will be economic carnage on a scale never seen before.

‘Compare the economic cost of being prepared for the next one to the cost of this one, over $US10trillion economic loss,’ he said. 

‘With the pandemic we were foolish not to have the tools, the practice and global capacity to be on standby like we do with fire or earthquakes.’ 

Mr Gates praised Australia’s brutal authoritarian policies including mask orders and some of the world’s longest lockdowns.

‘Some of the things that stand out are that Australia and about seven other countries did population scale diagnostics early on and had quarantine policies,’ he said.

‘That meant you kept the level of infection low in that first year when there were no vaccines.’

Gates also praised the rise of China as a good thing for the “world order” and declared that a stable international order based on mutual political will is needed in order to deal with future pandemics.

‘The one thing that still hangs in the balance is will we have the global capacity and at the regional and country levels that would mean that when an (infectious disease) threat comes up we act in such a way that it doesn’t go global,’ Mr Gates said.

‘We need to be doing every five years a comprehensive exercise at both country and regional levels of pandemic preparedness and you need a global group that’s scoring everybody.’
