Microsoft founder and philanthropist, Bill Gates believes we can prevent another pandemic from killing millions of people and devastating the global economy. He says this pandemic is not over. New variants will come along. How severe they will be is hard to predict.

In his new book titled How to Prevent the Next Pandemic, he lays out clearly and convincingly what the world should have learned from COVID-19 and what all of us can do to ward off another disaster like it. Relying on the shared knowledge of the world’s foremost experts and on his own experience of combating fatal diseases through the Gates Foundation, he first helps us understand the science of infectious diseases.

Then he shows how the nations of the world, working in conjunction with one another and with the private sector, can not only ward off another COVID-like pandemic but also eliminate all respiratory diseases, including the flu.

According to STAR, his main proposal is the formation of a GERM—Global Epidemic Response and Mobilisation—team of a new full-time, paid group whose entire job is to prepare for the next outbreak. They are a group of in-country and global epidemiologists, data scientists, logistics experts, who would be ready to go anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice.

How To Prevent the Next Pandemic was released Tuesday, 3 May 2022.
