Publisher's Summary

Experts predict that the next big epidemic is just around the corner. But are we prepared for it? And could we actually prevent it? 

Somewhere out there, a super virus is boiling up in the bloodstream of a bird, bat, monkey or pig, preparing to jump to a human being. This as-yet-undetected germ has the potential to kill more than 300 million people and reduce global GDP by 5-10 percent. That risk makes the threat posed by ISIS, a ground war, a massive climate event or even the dropping of a nuclear bomb on a major city pale by comparison. But there is hope.

In The End of Epidemics, leading public health authority Dr Jonathan D. Quick tells the stories of the heroes, past and present, who’ve succeeded in their fights to stop the spread of illness and death. He explains the science and the politics of combating epidemics. And he provides a detailed seven-part plan showing exactly how world leaders, health professionals, the business community, media and ordinary citizens can work together to prevent epidemics, saving millions of lives.

Must read during Covid-19 !

A great book that summarises the origin, history and the life of viruses. I love the fluent way of history description and the combination of the personal, political, economical, social and scientific view and stories. If you are in your 20s like me and you are wondering what is going on with today’s Covid-19 - READ ! Take action so we can leave this planet without threats like this one for the future generations !
