Bill Gates warns 10 million people could be loose their lives by bio-terrorism

Billionaire and  co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates has sent a clear warning to world leaders that millions of people could loose their lives in a bio-terrorism, whilst speaking at the Munich Security Conference in Germany held on Saturday, February 18, 2017. He declared that, 

"It's time to redirect some of the money the world spends on weapons to prepare for a looming threat: terrorists with pathogens. He's warning that the threat of bio-terrorism is "right up there with nuclear war and climate change." 

Bill's statement is a wake up call  for the world to prepare for what he considers to be one of its largest existential threats: the next pandemic. 

"Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more than 30 million people in less than a year. And they say there is a reasonable probability the world will experience such an outbreak in the next 10 to 15 years" he said.
