The Blurb On The Back:
Beginning in late 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic spread rapidly around the world, causing the deaths of millions of people and leading to closed schools, empty streets and shuttered businesses.
But viruses and pandemics have been part of human history for thousands of years, from the Black Death to SARS. PANDEMIC PLANET looks at what pandemics are, how they spread and how we deal with them. It explores how we arm ourselves against dangerous diseases, from developing groundbreaking new vaccines to simple, individual measures such as washing your hands and wearing a face mask. It also looks at how and what we learn from pandemics, as well as some of their surprisingly positive outcomes.
