"I believe that COVID-19 may be the last pandemic <…>. I started writing a book about how we can make sure that no one will ever suffer from a pandemic again," Gates wrote in his blog.
The book will be called "How to prevent the next pandemic" and will be released on May 3, 2022. The publishers will be Knopf in the USA and Penguin Random House on the international market.
According to Gates, he had been thinking about the topic of humanity's struggle with dangerous diseases for a long time, but it was the COVID-19 pandemic that pushed him to create the book. "Whenever I see the suffering caused by COVID, every time I read about the latest death toll or hear about someone who lost their job or drives past a closed school, I can't help but think: we shouldn't face this again," the billionaire explained.
The book will include the results of Gates' work with experts from his foundation, which finances, among other things, various projects in the field of healthcare, as well as conversations with "leaders in the field of healthcare", such as Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases of the USA, and Tedros Adan Ghebreyesus, head of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Gates also promised to present his views on vaccines, the role of the latter in curbing morbidity and share his experience of what it's like to be a hero of conspiracy theories.
Earlier, the billionaire repeatedly said that the world could face much more serious pandemics in the future than COVID-19. He believes that preparing for future pandemics can contribute to solving a number of existing problems, for example, the creation of HIV vaccines and more effective vaccinations against tuberculosis and malaria.
Gates also believes that the world is not doing enough to prepare for a new pandemic. It is necessary to learn how to make a vaccine within 100 days and have production facilities for its manufacture within the next 100 days to cover all the world's needs, he said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. According to the billionaire, this task is feasible.
Supporters of the conspiracy theory accused Gates of being connected with the COVID-19 pandemic: allegedly, the coronavirus was created by order of a billionaire to chip the world's population under the guise of vaccination and take over the world. "Unreliable information interferes with vaccination, because of this the epidemic will last longer," he replied to this.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was founded by the couple in 2000. It has become the largest private foundation in the United States: since its inception, the organization has supported various social projects worth more than $ 53 billion. The Gates Foundation funds initiatives related to improving access to healthcare, fighting poverty, expanding access to information technology and education. In particular, he allocated $100 million for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Gates announced his divorce from his wife in May 2021, the procedure was completed three months later. They decided to continue working together in the foundation.
