The Abbott Pandemic Defense Coalition is working nonstop at the front lines of virus surveillance and prevention to help stop outbreaks before they become pandemics. From the Amazon jungle to village townships of South Africa, to crowded urban centers in India and finally cutting-edge surveillance sites in the United States, follow a group of Coalition experts as they race the clock to stay one step ahead of the next viral threat.

Abbott and Warner Bros. Discovery have partnered on The Virus Hunt, a branded content series that follows the mission and work of the Abbott Pandemic Defense Coalition. In the first episode of the series, we are traveling to South Africa to see how our experts work tirelessly to identify COVID-19 variants.
