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”:
Movies like Outbreak nailed it when they imagined a global disease-fighting team who is ready to respond to a crisis on a moment’s notice. Now we need to make it a reality. https://t.co/Yn22HFLMwx

Has Gates ever seen “Outbreak,” or does he just think what happened should be a model government reaction to prevent the next pandemic?
In Outbreak, the government tries to bomb a small town to cover up it’s development of a deadly virus as a bio-weapon.
Nice reference, Bill. https://t.co/iJ9qiW3z1s

The government's plan in that movie was to bomb an American city. https://t.co/htzU03jLCt

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.
It took Dustin Hoffman defying orders and breaking chain of command to keep an entire city of American citizens from being wiped out by a military operation.
And even then, only because a little girl struck up a friendship with an escaped monkey.
