This is a 4.7 hurricane, potentially, coming down the pike.

Dr. Michael Osterholm had told USA Today earlier this year: ‘We’re just in the second inning of a nine-inning game’ That’s why members of the Midway Chamber of Commerce in Minnesota met with him on line on June 12, 2020. He gave an update and they asked him questions.
“This is just just getting started. This is just the warm up. This is not the big harangue, yet.”
Dr. Osterholm holds many titles and functions at the University of Minnesota, among them Regents Professor in Public Health, and he is director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP). They work to prevent illness and death from infectious disease. CIDRAP translates scientific information into real-world, practical applications, policies, and solutions.
Osterholm is the author of the 2017 book, Deadliest Enemy – Our War Against Killer Germs. He not only details the most pressing infectious disease threats of our day but, most importantly, lays out a nine-point strategy on how to address them. Preventing a global flu pandemic is at the top of the list.
Thanks to Chad Kudas, executive director of the Midway Chamber of Commerce. He hosted this interview with Prof. Osterholm on June 12, 2020.
