Purpose We aim to build a public-private partnership to conduct a large-scale surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 in the “wild” to discover the environmental and animal reservoirs that harbor the virus long-term, assess the hazard of virus entry to the human population from the environment (spillover), and study the virus adaptions/mutations in real-time to inform public health responses and preparedness.
