Disease outbreaks drive demand: Impact of Mpox on out-of-season sales

In June 2022 over 995 cases of Mpox were confirmed in non-endemic countries with global spread across the UK, Portugal, Spain, and the USA. What was once a limited outbreak in Nigeria had become a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. Staring in April, BlueDot sent six early-warning alerts to clients on the growing outbreak. Over the following months global news coverage on the outbreak surged, driving consumer interest in the disease and out-of-season demand for disinfectants.

With an average of 366 disease outbreaks every year, the next one is around the corner. Armed with early warning outbreak alerts and expert-written reports, you can seize the opportunity to capture incremental sales and get ahead of the curve. Get ahead of the next illness-driven demand spike with BlueDot.

Be prepared to act before an emerging outbreak hits the nightly news. BlueDot overcomes Kinsa’s challenges of limited disease coverage, delayed reporting, and inaccuracy by combining the power of artificial intelligence and human expertise.

“The BlueDot intelligence platform is very organized and allows for a scientific-based approach. It gives us a more proactive and predictive mindset around emerging diseases, including digging into regional and country-level data.”
