esearch Scientist Alexis Bateman hosts MIT Professor Yossi Sheffi for an interview to uncover some of the pending supply chain impacts to be expected resulting from the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. We will explore how the coronavirus is already impacting supply chains and what the impact may look like in the near future.
