Interrupted by Disease – Canadian Underwriter


Susan Delicata, Client Executive and Producer at BFL CANADA’s Toronto office, was interviewed by Greg Meckbach from Canadian Underwriter to comment on the 2014 Ebola crisis. The article, Interrupted by Disease, was published in the December 2014 issue of the magazine and expanded on how insurance carriers are handling Ebola and other pandemic losses.

 

“Businesses tend to overlook the risks from pandemics, but they do affect supply chain operations, says Delicata. (…) Commercial policyholders have to have a contingency plan for a disease outbreak. They have to actually look at it as an exposure. The insurance industry needs to educate policyholders on disease outbreaks.”
