Dr Wolfe founded Global Viral Forecasting Initiative (GVFI). This organization is a collaboration of more than a 100 scientist from around the world, all with the same goal of trying to prevent the next pandemic. These scientist research and look for early warning systems.
Dr Wolfe stated that the common handshake can be very dangerous. He also stated that humans are our worst enemy in spreading viruses. In the old days a virus would run through a village and then die out as the villagers died out. In todays world, travel is so easy and common that a handshake can carry a virus around the world in a day’s time. Our earth has now extended to 7 billion in population.
Dr Wolfe was chosen by Time magazine as being one of the most 100 influential people in the world.
