Animal Disease

March 3, 2013

According to the World Bank the economic devastation caused by a bird flu pandemic could cost the world up to 2 trillion dollars.

The presenters explained to students that somebody with the right know-how could easily infect any group of our animals.

The capstone for the day’s training was a tabletop exercise.
