(WASHINGTON, DC) Microsoft founder Bill Gates has raised the alarm over a growing threat from bio terrorism, warning that that it could cause tens of millions of deaths.
Speaking at a security conference in Munich, the richest man in the world warned that the impact of deadly viruses such as smallpox, should they spread, could be worse than that of a nuclear attack.
Gates, who delivered his chilling warning ahead of a speech at the Royal United Services Institute in London (RUSI), said the world should not underestimate the potential threat of lethal respiratory viruses, as they are becoming easier to re-create and spread.
“We ignore the link between health security and international security at our peril,” he said.
