Rate this:
Advances in medical science have done marvelous things, including allowing us to prevent widespread death at the hand of fast-spreading diseases. For every epidemic avoided, however, there is potential for a new one. This book presents essential information about infectious diseases through a collection of essays that debate current understanding. Readers will think critically about topics such as whether an influenza pandemic will occur, whether computers can predict and prevent pandemics, whether vaccinations are harmful, and the impact on climate change on infectious disease.
