Bill Gates warns Australia next pandemic is just around corner and will be man-made

Tech billionaire Bill Gates has warned Australia to be ready for the next pandemic, which could be man-made and far more brutal.

Mr Gates told the Lowy Institute think tank in Sydney on Monday that political leaders needed to set aside their differences and work together to prepare for the next virus.

He called for greater global cooperation using the Covid-19 pandemic as an example of how countries could improve on their response if they worked together.

'Compare the economic cost of being prepared for the next one to the cost of this one, over $US10trillion economic loss,' he said.
