Bill gates has doomed humanity to extinction
Famous American billionaire bill gates announced its own most basic fears. According to the Microsoft developer, he sponsored a special research group that has created a possible infectious catastrophe on Earth.

In an interview with TV channel Vox the former head of Microsoft 59-year-old bill gates called infectious epidemic one of the biggest dangers for the population of the earth. According to his calculations, with the advanced large-scale conditions of the world the spread of infection would be so fast that during 1st 100 days, she will be able to destroy 770 thousand people, and over 200 days of its victims are more than 33 million.

"I estimate the chances of nuclear war during my life as extremely low. Trouble falling asteroids that are replicated Hollywood films, large-scale earthquakes or volcanic eruptions, have too low chance to happen But the chances of a widespread epidemic of the virus will be even worse than Ebola, at the same time, according to my calculations, more than 50 percent," gates announced.

The billionaire admitted that she created a special research group that created probable infectious disaster. "Despite the fact that the level of medical support for the past 100 years much increased, there are new medicines and medical technology, this achievement will be offset by advanced mobility around the globe inhabitants of our planet, which will be deemed to be unwitting carriers of the disease. Because the rate of infection will be very rapid," says bill gates.

"If in USA to health 1st inhabitant of our planet, the government spends about 8 thousand $, in Eritrea, only 20 dollars. The bulk of could imagine that this is really the problem of a single African state, but, in a rapidly propagating a large-scale epidemic is a problem very quickly becomes a problem of States with a high level of development and Economics, and medicine," says an American billionaire. milliarder.

Citing the example of the rapid spread of the virus, gates says about the "Spanish flu" in 1918-1919 years claimed, according to various estimates, from 20 to 40 million deaths worldwide. "We don't even know where this "Spanish flu". The illness is so named because the first of her told the Spanish press. At the moment the border is crossed 50 times more people on the planet than a century ago. So, the speed of propagation of the virus will be higher than in the era of the "Spanish flu," complains developer Microsoft.

Note that bill gates is known for his charity Foundation and the fight against diseases in the poorest countries in the world. Last year he donated $ 500 million to fight malaria in Africa, from which there die every year 600 thousand people. Cruise was the phrase billionaire: "I just turned 59 years old. I am extremely upset, if you will not live to the time when malaria will be eradicated".
