Bill Gates has a new book titled “How to Prevent the Next Pandemic,” and in it he envisions a response such as the one in the 1995 movie “Outbreak”:

Has Gates ever seen “Outbreak,” or does he just think what happened should be a model government reaction to prevent the next pandemic?

In the movie, “Operation Clean Sweep” was a plan to bomb a city in California to cover up the government’s involvement in the development of a weaponized virus. In other words, Gates couldn’t have chosen a worse analogy.

Please consider that, Mr. Gates.

There seems to be a lot of that going around lately.
