Metabiota is a company that provides risk analytics for animal and human health

Metabiota is a company that provides risk analytics for animal and human health. The company was founded by Nathan Wolfe in 2008 in San Francisco, California, United States.

The company looks to minimize the impact of epidemics and by identifying and tracking pathogens. They do so by partnering with businesses and governments to assess and contextualize political instability, global transportation, population expansions, and ecological changes.

They look to provide analytics and for insurance and governmental industries to enable them to quantify complex infection and disease risks, plan responses, and assessing preparedness for varying degrees of dangerous events.

Epidemic Tracker

The company provides an epidemic tracker for world events concerning impacts in human and economic health. The reasoning for the tracker is due to the amount of damage and disruption that disease outbreaks can have that result in economic losses as well as human health and life.

COVID-19

With the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), Metabiota has recognized the virus as high risk as it can spread easily, evade detection, and overwhelm health systems. The trends that the company sees are that people are both overreacting and under-reacting. In the United States people have panicked into buying toilet paper, medicine, disinfectants, and masks, however they aren't taking to social distancing as readily.
