I have to disagree. There is no way to be prepared for new viruses that haven’t even occurred yet. But, all these amazing epidemiologists and scientists have deVeloped vaccines for multiple types of flu, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, polio and more. I am so grateful to all of them – beyond words grateful. What is amazing to me is that humans are even alive with all the virus and bacteria out there Working to get us !!
I also recommend Dr. Peter Piots’ book “No Time to Lose”. It is an amazing story of a man who has devoted his life, as a brilliant epidemiologist, to fighting for human lives.
