It’s hard to predict how, when, and where the next deadly pandemic disease will occur. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa last year sure provided quite a scare. But it wasn’t nearly as deadly as the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic that killed about 10 million people worldwide. Tonight, we welcome UW-Madison epidemiologist Tony Goldberg to learn just what it would take for a simple germ to turn into the next pandemic. As Tony says in our interview, it would take lots of little things to go right for a perfect storm to occur. But his research has found dozens of new, unknown viruses, any one of which could evolve into that perfect storm.
