A NEW EYE-OPENING ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF MEERA SENTHILINGAM'S TIMELY GUIDEFor decades scientists have been warning of a global pandemic, and the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak has realised their worst fears. Covid-19 and monkeypox make Outbreaks & Pandemics an essential guide to the future. It narrates a disquieting journey through the history, science, and politics of humankind's ongoing war against contagion; investigates modern responses; and assesses the chances of eradicating disease in the future. it also reveals how globalisation, mobile populations, climate change, vaccine hesitancy, and drug-resistant pathogens have combined to create the perfect conditions for pandemics to spread. This updated and illustrated edition is essential reading, combining extensive research with illuminating photographs and infographics to chart the pattern of outbreaks and reveal the microscopic world at their heart.
