"Did you know diseases are passed to humans many different ways? If proper care isn't followed or maintained, diseases can quickly spread, creating pandemics that affect thousands of people across the globe. The Ebola outbreak of 2014, which started in West Africa, spread rapidly to tens of thousands of people. Without proper care, thousands of infected people died. In this book, you'll examine pandemics and explore what they are, how they happen, and how to prevent them in the future"--Back cover.
