The World Economic Forum believes pandemics could cause a $570 billion annual loss to the global economy. 

Recently, the Leader in Epidemic Risk Modeling, Metabiota, released a free tool for tracking events that could impact human and economic health.

It’s called the Metabiota Epidemic Tracker, a free, new platform to view, analyze and understand events that could impact people, industries and nations.

Joining me today to look at this is the Head of Product at Metabiota, Ben Oppenheim, PhD.
