BILL GATES SAYS BIOTERRORISM ATTACK WORSE THAN A NUCLEAR BOMB IS GETTING LIKELY


From Esquire

Speaking ahead of speech at the Royal United Services Institute in London (RUSI), Gates said: “Bioterrorism is a much larger risk than a pandemic. All these advances in biology have made it far easier for a terrorist to recreate smallpox, which is a highly fatal pathogen, where there is essentially no immunity remaining at this point.

“When you are thinking about things that could cause in excess of 10 million deaths, even something tragic like a nuclear weapons incident wouldn’t get to that level. So the greatest risk is from a natural epidemic or an intentionally caused infection bioterrorism events.”
