The next outbreak? We’re not ready | Bill Gates

In 2014, the world avoided a horrific global outbreak of Ebola, thanks to thousands of selfless health workers -- plus, frankly, thanks to some very good luck. In hindsight, we know what we should have done better. So, now's the time, Bill Gates suggests, to put all our good ideas into practice, from scenario planning to vaccine research to health worker training. As he says, "There's no need to panic ... but we need to get going."
The TED Talks channel features the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and more.

  • Tin hat brigade: Bill gates planned covid. How do I know? He gave a talk about it 5 years before it happened. He's a master criminal WHO GIVES TALKS TO THE WORLD BEFORE HE PUTS HIS PLAN INTO ACTION. Like a moronic genius, he fits himself up like a bank robber taking a selfie in front of the bank with a sign above his own head which reads "I will rob the bank". Tin hat brigade, we love you for your total bullshit

  • I have a new business idea. All we need to do is get the world to accept. Tracking software, RNA vaccination And we have front and back end sales for generations to come. From the side effect deaths trauma disability of the whole Gates response model. How about we eat health food and drink healthy water. And come of our phones and computers and Make use of sunshine, sea sand trees. This guy is not a medical man! He seems to be selling Technology! His next money making scheme.

  • First, factory farms are among the largest contributors to antibiotic resistance because the vast majority of antibiotics used worldwide are used within them, often without any sensible restrictions or forethought as to the long-term risks this poses. Second, factory farms and the cultivation of livestock often requires deforestation, which places humans into closer contact with animals in the wild that may transmit emerging diseases

  • How did this man know about a Highly infectious virus in 2016 ,with such assurance in the way he speaks. And people are still going to be lullabied to sleep by these people. America and the rest of the world whether your right wing or left it5 the same stupid bird your and son brainwashed I don't even think calling you brainwashed actually explains what I mean. What next they're going keep on throwing you their agendas via New,television shows and puppet rapper or pop stars. HOW TILL YOU ARE WOKEN UP.. When CHRIST FINALLY SHOWS UP OR WHEN YOUR DEAD FROM what ever these devils plan to do to you.

    • @Marco Yes and GOD did sent plagues not only on a disobedient nation like Israel but also on a tyrannical nation like Egypt that thought they could enslave His people. But tell me If God is not a good father in your eyes tell how would you discipline a disobedient nation that continually forgets what you said and that just blatantly disregards Correction even if you mean it for their own good tell me. How would discipline your children. I'd love to know and I not being sarcastic, I need to know because in this world where hitting a child doesn't help. How would your approach to handling a disobedient child be please enlighten me I'm struggling myself with that one.

    • @Lee-Andre Mario Van Der Byl Well, if you truly are so religious, why are you not hailing Bill Gates as the new prophet? Clearly he warned for a pandemic, it happened, we weren't prepared, so punishment from god, no? Remember that according to your own religion your god has frequently sent all kinds of plagues onto us... Oh, and way to go in demanding much, much, much more evidence for evolution than you'd ever require to just believe in your god's existence, along with your religions demands...

      MarcoMarco9 саат мурун
    • @Marco So the video link that you gave was about a man that uses evolution to describe the data that they have in order to identify how viruses are created and evolve. Listen friend I don't hate you and I didn't start out as a Christian either, but GOD proved Himself to me through hardships that I faced in my life and overcame . I'm not saying you have to care about what I believe,but what I'm trying to tell you is that it takes more faith and using data about things that aren't even physically proven or factual to believe in your evolution. Use something factual when taking about science because science has to be tested through extensive experiments and the data acquired after the result have to give clear evidence of what ever the person claiming something is saying. That's Science, but lets be real and ask why would cows subject themselves to being herded by Man as in Mankind. Only to be killed and skined alive and used for their flesh. It like a stripper subjecting herself into being mens slaves only to get a piece of printed paper valued as currency and then after to lose her dignity and in most cases end up raped and killed by some jerk after she tries to defend herself from being undignified. Cows could've evolved to become man killing warriors and save themselves from human enslavement eons ago. I mean they don't to what for scientists to give them the reminder that they can evolve if they have it within themselves to do it. Or maybe I'm just paranoid as you said , after all I'm African and I live on a Continent where people do thing that'll make you paranoid.

    • He gets his knowledge from field experts, who have been pointing to the dangers of humans using more and more land, and the dangers of humans exploiting animals.
