What can we do to stop the next pandemic from killing millions of lives?
This book is a summary of The End of Epidemics: The Looming Threat to Humanity and How to Stop It, by Jonathan D. Quick, MD.
At the peak of the 2014 Ebola crisis in West Africa, the world was facing a global catastrophe. Where would Ebola travel next?
There will always be new outbreaks of infectious diseases. Bill Gates and his team predicted that an epidemic like the 1918 Spanish flu that killed 50 million people could happen again today. A global pandemic could kill over 300 million people and reduce global GDP by 5 to 10 percent. What can we do to prevent such devastating epidemics?
In The End of Epidemics, Dr. Jonathan Quick presented compelling evidence that a global pandemic threat is real. He proposes a new set of actions called the Power of Seven, to end epidemics before they can begin. By following the Power of Seven, public-health leaders can keep such outbreaks from exploding into catastrophic epidemics.
This book is crucial reading for citizens, health professionals, and policymakers alike.
