Warning of future pandemics and bioterrorist attacks, Bill Gates is urging world leaders to use “germ games” to prepare for them.
Gates, who is the fourth richest man in the world, claims that “tens of billions” will be needed for research and development to create a global pandemic task force running ‘germ games” in preparation for the next pandemic or biological attacks..
RT reports: Gates made his comments during a discussion with the chair of the Health Select Committee and former UK Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt at the COP26 summit this week.
“It’ll take probably about a billion a year for a pandemic Task Force at the [World Health Organization] level, which is doing the surveillance and actually doing what I call ‘germ games’ where you practice,” Gates said. He gave a ‘what-if’ scenario of bioterrorists releasing smallpox in multiple airports as a potential “germ game” that could be used to prepare for an attack.
Gates says his “global pandemic task force” must be financed sooner rather than later and should be a “priority” due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The next year will be where those allocations have to get made, including this global pandemic task force,” he said, adding that both the US and UK will need to spend “tens of billions” on research and development first.
This research and development, Gates said, would include making vaccines cheaper, obtaining “big factories,” and “eradicating” common colds and the flu.
The fourth-richest man in the world has found himself embroiled in odd controversies since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, with many questioning the billionaire’s motives for being so involved in vaccine distribution. Gates himself eventually felt compelled to address some of the wild claims by conspiracy theorists. He has also made headlines for predicting a global pandemic years before Covid-19.
The Microsoft founder’s new idea for a global task force worth billions running around playing “germ games” had many scratching their head. Some criticized Gates himself, while others detested the idea of giving governments more authority to prepare for another pandemic.
During his discussion with Hunt, Gates also said there needs to be a “new way” to create vaccines that works to stop transmission better, something that could be developed through his expensive idea for global research and development on potential pandemics.
“You know, we didn’t have vaccines that block transmission. We got vaccines that help you with your health, but they only slightly reduced transmission,” he said. “We need a new way of doing the vaccines.”

CNN Anchor Claims Dangerous Filthy Slums in America Are ‘Vibrant Expressions of Democracy’
CNN host Fareed Zakaria aired an astonishing rant this past
weekend arguing that major US cities are filthy and dangerous because of
“democracy,” and that makes them more “vibrant.”
Zakaria was attempting to provide a counter argument to Tucker
Carlson’s recent report that Russia’s subways are nicer than America’s.
Modernity.news reports: “American cities are expressions of democracy,” Zakaria asserted, claiming they are “places where people have to negotiate differences and find ways to live together, that makes them messier and dirtier and sometimes chaotic.”
He then argued “perhaps that is what has made these cities so vibrant and innovative, and why they have been at the forefront in making America the country that leads the world in economics, technology, culture and power.”
Is rampant crime, homelessness, and drug use part of said vibrancy?
Fact check. American cities were not shit holes when the country emerged as the envy of the world.
Zakaria continued, “Carlson speaks enviously of cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and they are indeed wonderful in their own distinctive ways. But what’s striking about all of them is that they are somewhat tame and subdued. The product of authoritarian governments or conformist culture, or both. American cities are different.”
He appears to be seriously claiming that you cannot have a clean and safe city without some kind of evil dictatorship overseeing it.
Zakaria continued “Carlson put forward a bizarre hodgepodge of assertions he thought the architecture, food and service in Moscow was better than in any American city. Really? Moscow?”
“Outside of a small historic center, it is filled with drab Soviet era concrete buildings. And while the food in Moscow can be quite good…Better than New York or San Francisco? You need to get out more” Zakaria concluded.
Has he been to San Francisco lately?
