Searching For Global Killers: The Infectious Diseases That Are Still Killing Us
G Paid content

Humanity has recently been engaged in a never-ending battle against diseases. From the common cold to the deadly epidemics, we have always been fighting to keep ourselves healthy and safe. And in the modern age, this battle has become more intense than ever since the global pandemic of SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19 (what a stupid name). One of the greatest threats we face is antimicrobial resistance. This global health crisis has the potential to seriously undermine progress in modern medicine, particularly in fields such as surgery and trauma emergency care.

The consequences could be dire if we do not address antimicrobial resistance head-on. In the future, people may be more likely to be killed by infectious diseases than by cancer or car accidents. This is because the antibiotics we currently rely on to treat common infections will no longer be effective, leading to a dramatic increase in morbidity and mortality from post-surgical infections. Suppose we don't take action to control the situation. In that case, we could find ourselves returning to the dark ages of medicine when people feared common infections and risked their lives for even minor surgeries.

While this book is not meant to prepare you to become an expert, it delves into the world of infectious diseases, exploring the most deadly and dangerous pathogens, such as viruses and bacteria, that have caused pandemics and epidemics throughout human history.

As we progress through the pages, you will learn about the origins and spread of these diseases, their impact on society and the efforts to combat them. You will also gain insight into the latest research and developments in infectious diseases, including efforts to find treatments and vaccines.

This book is a journey through the history of infectious diseases and a call to action to protect ourselves and our communities from these global killers. It reminds us of the importance of public health measures and the role that we all play in preventing the spread of disease.

I hope that you find this book to be a fascinating and informative read and that it inspires you to take an active role in the fight against infectious diseases.
