We are constantly exposed to various microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi. The urbanization and globalization have contributed to the emergence and spread of antimicrobial-resistant (AMR) pathogens and increased risk of large-scale outbreaks of infectious disease. The International Consortium MetaSUB (metasub.org) was launched in 2015 to study urban microbiomes. We will introduce our projects to study urban microbiomes around the globe before, during and after the COVID-19 pandemic and mass gathering events such as World Cup and Olympic and Paralympic Games.
