What Do You Want To Know About Pandemics? Submit A Question

February 14, 2017

Goats and Soda is now running a series on pandemics.

Dangerous viruses like Ebola and MERS are emerging in greater numbers than ever before. We’re looking at how pandemics start, how diseases jump from animals to humans and why the number of newly discovered viruses is on the rise.

We know you’ll have lots of questions along the way. In fact, we’ve already received a few from our audience. On Twitter, someone asked: Could it be possible that in today’s information age, there really aren’t more pandemics — we just hear more about them? On Facebook, another asked: How did the animals first get the diseases?

What do you want to know about pandemics? Submit your questions in the tool below.

The deadline for submitting a question for consideration is Feb. 27. In an upcoming story, our reporters will answer some of your questions. So if there’s something you’d like to know about pandemics, let us know!
