Bill Nye The Science Guy has once again lived up to his title after it’s been revealed how he basically predicted the ongoing pandemic.
TikToker Michi has gone viral after she recalled the moment when she asked the beloved educator about what the ‘first step’ would be if a deadly virus was to sweep across the globe in 2015.
The 21-year-old shared a video about the duo’s interaction during a Twitter Q and A which has since gone viral.
The question she asked was: ‘Let’s say a virus is sweeping the globe. What would your first step be to protect mankind?’
Bill replied: ‘If a virus were sweeping the planet, the first step is to wash your hands. That’s really the name of the game.
‘Remind everybody that more people died in 1918 from the Spanish flu than died of World War I.’
He continued: ‘So when a virus comes, it could be very serious business. Get vaccinated everybody!’
Michi, who was 16 at the time, admitted in the post: ‘I thought this was some sci-fi fantasy question, I didn’t think this could actually happen. None of us did.’
She added: ‘I wish everyone took all of this as seriously as @billnye took my “hypothetical” situation. #billnyethescienceguy #billnye #WordsOfWisdom.’
Moral of the story: Always respect the advice of Bill Nye The Science Guy.
