This publication is based on scientific analysis, newspaper sources, and is loosely inspired by the documentary "COVID-19 - The Virus of Fear" that was created thanks to Massimo Tortorella’s idea and a screenplay by Christian Marazziti and Manuela Jael Procaccia. The goal of this book is to explain the truth of the matter and to defend current and future generations from fake news. It aims to understand the dynamics - including psychological ones - of the risks associated with epidemics and their health, social, political and economic consequences internationally. This book also wishes to honor science, spread culture, and pay respect to those who have lost their lives in this epidemic. All net proceeds from sales of this eBook will be donated to the Italian Civil Protection Department.
