Multiple social media posts in May 2022 claimed that Bill Gates had lately warned of a smallpox outbreak. Some of these commenters imply that Bill Gates played a role in the spread of monkeypox in Europe and the United States. Numerous posts are connected to pre-existing conspiracy theory tales concerning the Microsoft founder and his foundation. While Gates has previously discussed the possibilities of bioterrorist smallpox attacks, his words have been taken out of context and do not reference monkeypox. During a Policy Exchange Interview with Jeremy Hunt, chair of the United Kingdom's Health Select Committee, in November 2021, Gates advised governments to prepare for future pandemics and smallpox terror strikes.
