The businessman warned governments in various countries of the need to prepare for terrorist attacks with biological weapons, learned, citing In particular, we are talking about intentional infection with smallpox – a highly contagious viral infection. The disease is characterized by fever, rash on the skin and mucous membranes, often leaving scars. That’s what The Independent writes.

According to the founder of Microsoft, countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom have to spend tens of billions of dollars to fund epidemiological safety research. It is especially worth paying attention to the places where people from different countries gather. Bioterrorists are likely to carry out attacks at airports.

“It will probably take about a billion a year for the WHO working group to monitor and do what I call a ‘microbial game,'” Bill Gates said.

According to the developer, epidemics caused by bioterrorism can be worse than natural, including more dangerous than the pandemic of the coronavirus infection COVID-19. We remind you that the first outbreak of coronavirus was registered in December 2019 in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Now, according to BBC News, the number of coronavirus deaths worldwide has already exceeded 5 million. recalls that on October 29 this year, the US intelligence community concluded that the Covid-19 coronavirus was not developed as a biological weapon, according to a report published by the US National Intelligence Council. “We believe that the virus was not created as a biological weapon,” the report said. “Most agencies also estimate with a low level of confidence that the virus may not have been genetically modified. However, two agencies believe that there is not enough data to make such an assessment,” the report said.

According to the report, US intelligence agencies have not reached a consensus on the origin of the virus and believe that two hypotheses about the origin of COVID-19 are likely: an animal infection and “related to a laboratory incident [in Wuhan].”
