New, more dangerous varieties
Because according to him, The worst has not yet come… “There is still a risk of developing this infection Vary It will be more contagious and even more so Deadly“, He argues. One prediction is not really the same, a little backwards, mankind was able to face the catastrophic variation. Delta For the ultra transmissible omigron variant in recent months. No need to mention subtypes Type XD, BA.2, BA.4 …
“It’s not possible, I do not want to be A pessimistic voiceBut the risk is good Over 5% This epidemic is more than just taking a serious turn. We never saw the worst“
How to deal with it?
So, can the world manage a new crisis more serious than Govt disease? Maybe if countries join hands and start creating some kind of WHO on steroids dedicated only to crisis management.
The Germs (Response and mobilization for global epidemic), according to Bill Gates, will be the new planetary agency to respond to such problems.

To put that figure forward, $ 1 billion a year is less than 0.1% of annual global defense spending, ”the billionaire estimated.
