After the world breathed a sigh of relief, Pfizer and BioNTech will submit to the US administration a request for approval for their Coronavirus vaccine in the coming days, after the final analyzes have yielded 95% efficacy, even more than previously said, with virtually no safety concerns. In two injections per patient. However, this joy will not be complete in what appears.

Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, stated that the world will soon face another pandemic, but he expressed great optimism that the world will face it in the best way compared to Corona.

Bill Gates is known to be a visionary, so when he announces about the future, it's best to be vigilant. This time, the Microsoft co-founder predicted that the world will face a new pandemic in the near future. However, he confirms that the experience gained with COVID-19 will help us overcome it.

The tech mogul made the prediction during a conversation with actress and activist Rashida Jones and America's chief epidemiologist, Anthony Fauci. During his podcast, which was published Monday on his blog, Gates is questioned about the inevitability of another pandemic. His answer was:

"We hope he is 20 years from now," said the billionaire. "But we have to assume it may take 3 years from now."

Nevertheless, Gates expects an encouraging scenario, thanks to the lessons the coronavirus has left. In his opinion, the spread of a new, unknown disease would be "less devastating" because we "would have been trained" on how to manage it.

 According to the businessman, the COVID-19 epidemic will end in 2022, after a period of stability and plateau.

"If the vaccines are effective, even with the vaccination level of 60%, we will stop the spread of the disease. Next year we will stop the number of deaths, and in 2022 the epidemic will end."

Just a few days ago, in an interview with CNN, the businessman predicted that there would be 2,000 deaths per day before the vaccine arrived.

 From the start of the pandemic to today, more than 58.4 million infections and 1.3 million deaths have been recorded worldwide, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
