              The 2020 outbreak of coronavirus has terrified the world - and revealed how unprepared we are for the next outbreak of an infectious disease. Somewhere in nature, a killer virus is boiling up in the bloodstream of a bird, bat, monkey, or pig, preparing to jump to a human being. T...his not-yet-detected germ has the potential to wipe out millions of lives over a matter of weeks or months. That risk makes the threat posed by ISIS, a ground war, a massive climate event, or even the dropping of a nuclear bomb on a major city pale in comparison. In The End of Epidemics, Duke Global Health Institute faculty member and past Chair of the Global Health Council Dr. Jonathan D. Quick examines the eradication of smallpox and devastating effects of influenza, AIDS, SARS, Ebola, and other viral diseases . Analysing local and global efforts to contain these diseases and citing firsthand accounts of failure and success, Dr. Quick proposes a new set of actions which he has coined The Power of Seven, to end epidemics before they can begin. These actions include- - Spending prudently to prevent disease before an epidemic strikes, rather than spending too little, too late - Ensuring prompt, open, and accurate communication between nations and aid agencies, instead of secrecy and territorial disputes - Fighting disease and preventing panic with innovation and good science Practical and urgent, The End of Epidemics is crucial reading for citizens, health professionals, and policymakers alike. 'Pragmatic, insightful and research-rich, this is a key volume for the policymaker's shelf.' -Nature 'Dr. Quick's urgent message makes one hope that this book will reach a huge audience and that its exhortations will be acted on everywhere.' -The Wall Street Journal 'In The End of Epidemics, Quick and co-author Bronwyn Fryer spell out the seven biggest things we need to stop those outbreaks becoming epidemics. It is an impressive wish list ... We could certainly use some of the advocacy for public heal

              AIDS. Ebola. Bird flu. SARS. Year after year we manage new viruses thanks to the tireless work done in labs and hot zones around the world. Now, Jonathan Quick explains how we could end epidemics forever. Somewhere out there, a killer virus is boiling up in the bloodstream of a b...ird, bat, monkey, or pig, preparing to jump to a human being. This as-yet-undetected germ has the potential to wipe out millions of lives over a matter of weeks or months. That risk makes the threat posed by ISIS, a ground war, a massive climate event, or even the dropping of a nuclear bomb on a major city pale by comparison. This epidemic could come upon us without warning, as we succumb to fear, denial, and panic, and shield ourselves with complacency, hubris, and our own financial self-interest. Yet The End of Epidemics is about hope. Leading public-health expert Jonathan Quick tells the stories of the heroes, past and present, who've succeeded in their fights to stop the spread of illness and death. He explains the science and the politics of epidemics. And he shows exactly how we can prevent, and end, epidemics in the future.
