Stopping the Covid-19 pandemic and preventing future disease outbreaks from spreading globally requires rapid, accurate information about the virus. We need information from all corners of the globe, which requires a diverse group of stakeholders working together. We are collaborating with over 20 organizations to build global genomic sequencing and data sharing capacity.
