In Winning the War on Death: Humanity, Infection and the Fight for the Modern World (forthcoming 2018), Charles Kenny discusses humanity’s triumph over five different infectious killers and suggest that even though we are more physically connected to people around the globe than ever before, our ingenuity as a species will defend us against another global infectious disease catastrophe.
