Over the last 30 years of epidemics and pandemics, we learned nearly every lesson needed to stop the coronavirus outbreak in its tracks, but heeded almost none of them. Here science journalist Debora MacKenzie lays out the full story of how and why COVID-19 went from a potentially manageable outbreak to a global pandemic. Offering a compelling history of the most significant recent outbreaks, including SARS, H1N1, Zika, and Ebola, she gives a crash course in how viruses spread and how pandemics end—and makes a bold, optimistic argument: this catastrophe might finally galvanize the world into taking viruses seriously.
