Overview

For years epidemiologists have been predicting a new pandemic would sweep the world soon. They've been warning us that we should be ready. Currently, humanity is in the midst of just that. COVID-19 originated in Wuhan and spread around the world in just months, overwhelming healthcare systems and shutting down entire countries.

Sonia Shah's Pandemic: Tracking Contagions, from Cholera to Ebola and Beyond is incredibly relevant to what we experienced in 2020 and 2021. It's fascinating to see the very things she described that have happened before our eyes. Some governments have inadequately handled the situation and germs are quickly spreading through modern travel, just to name a couple. This book will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about pandemics.

"The global bonfire of fossil fuels will heighten the likelihood of pandemics on its own, in a way that is likely to be even more consequential than all of its contributing factors put together."
