“We will have another epidemic. “It’s going to be a different pathology next time,” Gates said.

He spoke about the corona virus and vaccines
Two years after the corona virus infection, Gates’ ill effects have weakened as large sections of the world’s population have become somewhat immunocompromised and the severity of the disease has decreased.

Currently, 61.9% of the world’s population receives at least one dose. Vaccine against Govt-19. He urged people to move fast in the future to develop and distribute vaccines and to invest immediately.
“Next time we should try to do this quickly, in six months instead of two,” he said, adding that sustainable sites, including MRNA technology, would make it possible.
“The cost of preparing for the next epidemic is not so great. It’s not like climate change. If we are fair, yes, we will catch it as soon as possible next time,” Bell Gates said.
Through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Gates donated $ 300 million to the Epidemic Innovation Alliance (CEPI) in association with the UK Welcome Foundation, which helped design the Kovacs project for low- and middle-income countries.
CEPI aims to raise $ 3.5 billion in an effort to reduce the time it takes to develop a new vaccine in just 100 days.
