Bill Gates about the coronavirus

Microsoft founder Bill Gates believes that the omicron strain of coronavirus will be the last acute phase of the pandemic and bring it to an end. He expressed this opinion in an interview published on Thursday in the German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung.

"My hope is that the wave of disease caused by the omicron strain of coronavirus will be the last acute phase of the pandemic," Gates said. At the same time, he expressed fears that everyone will soon forget about this pandemic and switch to other crises.

"That's why the message now should be: we should all prepare wisely for other pandemics," the American businessman stressed, noting that the investment in pandemic preparedness is small compared to the damage caused by it.

Gates believes the money should be invested in three main areas: monitoring possible outbreaks, international research into diagnosis and treatment of patients, and developing health systems. "This pandemic has been a tragedy for everyone. We were lucky, it could have been ten times more dangerous," he concluded.

Earlier it was reported that the founder of Microsoft Corporation had written a book called How to Prevent the Next Pandemic. In it the entrepreneur described the steps by which pandemics can be avoided in the future, as well as provide better health care for all people on the planet. The book is expected to be published on 3 May.
