Bill Gates Predicted That Pandemic Will End, But Also Hinted At Another Disaster

Amid the subsiding cases of Omicron in India that is the highly contagious coronavirus variant is still creating a threat through the US and several other countries, Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft and the millionaire philanthropist sees some hope that the pandemic will soon end.

In a tweet, he suggested that once the Omicron wave passes, coronavirus will be treated more like the seasonal flu. He wrote, “Once Omicron goes through a country then the rest of the year should see far fewer cases so Covid can be treated more like seasonal flu.”

He hinted that after more than two years, the pandemic will soon hit the endemic stage. Gates also warned of another warning about a forthcoming pandemic that awaits the world. He said that next pandemic will not be caused by a coronavirus, but by a different form of the infection.

According to the Microsoft co-founder, the danger from Covid-19 has dramatically reduced with widespread access to vaccines. Gates, who warned about the Omicron wave in December, now predicts that the world would be hit by “another pandemic,” this time caused by a different “pathogen.”

Speaking to the TV news channel CNBC, Gates said the COVID risk, which was more dangerous for the elderly and people with an underlying disease has now reduced and the exposure of the infection has also reduced.
