A vital, timely text on the viruses that cause pandemics and how to face them, by the New York Times bestselling author of How Not to Die. From tuberculosis to bird flu and HIV to coronavirus, these infectious diseases share a common origin story: human interaction with animals. Otherwise known as zoonotic diseases for their passage from animals to humans, these pathogens—both pre-existing ones and those newly identified—emerge and re-emerge throughout history, sparking epidemics and pandemics that have resulted in millions of deaths around the world. How did these diseases come about? And what—if anything—can we do to stop them and their fatal march into our countries, our homes, and our bodies? In How to Survive a Pandemic, Dr. Michael Greger, physician and internationally-recognized expert on public health issues, delves into the origins of some of the deadliest pathogens the world has ever seen. Tracing their evolution from the past until today, Dr. Greger spotlights emerging flu and coronaviruses as he examines where these pathogens originated, as well as the underlying conditions and significant human role that have exacerbated their lethal influence to large, and even global, levels. As the world grapples with the devastating impact of the novel coronavirus 2019, Dr. Greger reveals not only what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones during a pandemic, but also what human society must rectify to reduce the likelihood of even worse catastrophes in the future.

Due to the pandemic, mass events are being canceled in most countries of the world. Closed galleries, exhibition halls, circuses and theaters, canceled festivals. Now it is very important not to give in to anxiety and panic. Your psychological state directly affects the body's ability to fight the virus. Virus, pandemic, observation, quarantine, self-isolation, death - such a set of words from American thrillers about disasters. If you have ever watched such a movie, remember the feeling of tension in your own body that appeared from the development of the plot on the screen. And then all of a sudden, this is not a plot from the film, but rather the reality of every inhabitant in this world. And the feelings that we experience already concern this very reality. It is obvious that each of us feels fear, anxiety and panic. Some defend themselves with denial - they do not recognize quarantine and defiantly violate the rules of conduct. Everything that happens is a completely natural reaction to the stress that we all experience and will continue to experience. However there are ways to survive this pandemic and live happily despite the turbulent events. Get this book to learn more.

An in-depth guide to prepare your family for the widespread outbreak of any deadly disease like COVID-19 or H1N1 New pandemics hop around the globe every year. In 2009-2010, it was H1N1 that spread uncontrollably, infecting over 60 million people around the globe. In 2014, Ebola virus claimed 11,325 lives with just 28,652 cases—a stunning 40% mortality rate. In 2020, COVID-19 (a highly transmissible coronavirus with a mortality rate equivalent to Spanish Flu) jumped from Wuhan, China, to a world-wide pandemic, causing economic panic and an uncontrolled global outbreak, all despite the best efforts of governments and health organizations. So, what will happen when a pathogen as easily transmitted as H1N1 or coronavirus and as deadly as Ebola enters a population somewhere—anywhere—in the world? Prepping for a Pandemic provides all the information needed for the day when that horrible eventuality becomes a reality. It provides readers with a life-saving plan that guides them step by step to a state of medical self-reliance. It covers every important issue including stocking food, storing water, developing contingency plans, learning first aid and nursing skills, as well as establishing quarantines and sick rooms. With checklists, tips, and plans, this book outlines the necessary supplies and skills one will need to stay healthy when doctors, hospitals, and the world’s medical infrastructure become overwhelmed and unavailable during a pandemic outbreak.

The fact is that we are not much more prepared in a practical sense to survive a long-term widespread disaster than our poorer counterparts in other counties who deal with similar situations on a daily basis.
