Global Warning, Response System For Outbreaks Critical For Next Epidemic, Gates Says

NPR: Bill Gates Tells The World: Get Ready For The Next Epidemic
“‘An epidemic is one of the few catastrophes that could set the world back drastically in the next few decades,’ Bill Gates warns in an essay he wrote for the March 18 edition of The New England Journal of Medicine. … That’s why, he continues, ‘the world needs a global warning and response system for outbreaks.’ And part of that system must be a better way to get supplies and ‘trained personnel’ to the scene, where they can work with local efforts…” (Silver, 3/30).
