MORE THAN 600% OF GOAL! Bio-Defense Network’s first opportunity to work on Closed PODs was in St. Louis County. When the project began, St. Louis County had 27 percent of its residents covered by Closed PODs, but wanted to increase that to at least 34 percent or 70,000 participants. Within five months, more than 72 percent of all St. Louis County residents – more than 720,000 people – were covered by the Closed POD Network, making St. Louis County the most prepared county in the nation to deal with a bioterrorism incident.
