The Cost of Covid


Dr. Tom Frieden, former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Estimated cost of recent epidemics/pandemics:

SARS (2003) - $40 billion

H5N1 (2006) - $40 billion

H1N1 (2009) - $45 billion

Ebola (2014) - $55 billion

COVID-19 (2020) - $8.8 TRILLION

Investing in public health preparedness is FAR cheaper than the economic impact of a pandemic.
