I've heard many people say things like "this is unprecedented. Who could've seen this coming?". Well apparently...Bill Gates. One of the most famous and successful entrepreneurs in the world who has been putting resources towards fighting infectious diseases was literally trying to warn the world about this possibility 5 years ago. The reaction to this speech was "Cool speech, Bill. Okay, next up is a guy who can teach you how to properly tie your shoes" and we just went about our lives business as usual. Who knows if taking the steps Bill Gates outlined would've stopped Covid-19 in it's tracks, but it couldn't have hurt.
