Anatomy of a Pandemic : Ebola Virus Disease in the 21st Century
by Jonathan Jeffreys




Overview -
Pandemics have been challenging the existence of humankind since before the first recorded pandemic, the Bubonic Plague, in the 14th Century. For example, there was Smallpox in 1780 while the 1880s saw the rise of Tuberculosis. Spanish Influenza was the scourge of civilization during the years of World War I while the AIDS outbreak overwhelmed North America in 1969. Now Ebola stands at stage center demanding the world's attention as its most formidable foe in the 21st century. Anatomy of a Pandemic: Ebola Virus Disease in the 21st Century uses the Ebola virus outbreak of 2014-15 as a model for describing what pandemics are, how they are transmitted between organisms, how they are disseminated throughout the world, and how they are eradicated. Anatomy of a Pandemic: Ebola Virus Disease in the 21st Century was written by Jonathan Jeffreys, biologist and Science Editor for BiologyCoachOnline. Jeffreys' story begins in a schoolhouse in the little village of Yambuku in the tiny West African country of Zaire in 1976 and he takes the reader on the epic journey as the Ebola virus blooms from a local epidemic to a worldwide pandemic right before our eyes. Along the way, Jeffreys explores: the history of infectious disease and pandemics; signs and symptoms of Ebola Virus Disease; Ebola's epic journey out of Africa and into Europe and eventually to the continental United States; the potential for Ebola's use as an agent of bioterrorism and biological warfare; and the profound impact of pandemics on the global economy. Jeffreys entertains as he informs thus making Anatomy of a Pandemic: Ebola Virus Disease in the 21st Century an exciting read for anyone planning a career in medicine or healthcare, the person interested in science or science history, or anyone fascinated by the natural world and natural processes.
