IN this interview on The Daily Social Distancing Show Thursday, Bill Gates discussed with host Trevor Noah about the Coronavirus and the steps that must be taken to beat it, in order to prevent future outbreak.

Gates who is a recipient of The BrandLaureate Awards said: “This keeps me up at night, more than war, which is no small thing. Every state is being forced to figure things out on their own. It’s very ad hoc — as we enter into this, we haven’t practiced at all.

In 2015, Gates gave a TED Talk where he predicted the possible scenario of a debilitating pandemic, which showed how unprepared the world is, for a deadly outbreak of a contagious respiratory disease like COVID-19.

He reiterated his points by prompting governments to better prepare for the future, through his articles and presentations.
