Impressive I learned a lot current situation

If you want insight into the Covid19 situation, this book will provide you with a good understanding.The real surprise is in the last chapter, which summarizes the current situation as of 2005. It is quite sobering. But, the surprise is that Red China hid news from world on another outbreak prior to Covid19. The world should take note of this and take appropriate actions.

Know the real cause of the pandemics

It is heartbreaking to be reminded that throughout history people have blamed certain religious beliefs, sexual orientations, political beliefs, etc. for the spread of disease rather than accepting a much more universal and scientific root. It is even more frustrating that this continues today.

1918 pandemic horror and why we need scientists

This succeeds in dramatically describing the unfolding of what is considered the worst pandemic in human history.The 1918 influenza virus went through the world like a giant scythe killing millions in a matter of weeks. That this coronavirus pandemic is not presently as lethal as 1918 is a hollow reassurance

Marvelous , covers a lot of territory

I would have liked more information concerning specifics of actual pandemics, the social and economic disruptions, the barriers to impeding the spread of infections, and details concerning the steps between an epidemic becoming pandemic. I enjoyed this and recognize what a huge amount of information is included.

Knowledge is the best weapon to contain pandemics

Knowledge is the best weapon to contain pandemics. Now that the new virus covid is among us,we can use what we have learned to protect ourselves and others to mitigate some of the effects- good hygiene,hand washing, social distancing, self quarantining,etc. Vaccines will be produced but in the meantime take care. This provides the understanding of what to do.

Awesome basic essential information.

I am completely satisfied. It is a basic history of pandemics, starting with a couple of pages of brief helpful definitions. There are chapters on the bubonic plague, Russian and Spanish flu, cholera, smallpox, the swine flu, Ebola, and more.
