how to survive a pandemic

BOOK EXCERPT:

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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

'A splendid book . . . I can't think of anyone I know who wouldn't benefit from reading it' - Marcus Berkmann, Daily Mail 'A brilliant, brilliant book' - Chris Evans What is the connection between crawling through a jungle and your 'to do' list? What can ejecting out of a stealth bomber teach you about the importance of thinking the worst? What can surviving in extreme situations teach us about surviving everyday life? John Hudson, Chief Survival Instructor to the British Military, knows what it takes to survive. Combining first-hand experience with twenty years of studying the choices people have made under the most extreme pressure, How to Survive is a lifetime's worth of wisdom about how to apply the principles of survival to everyday life. The cornerstone of military survival (surviving anything) is understanding the relationship between effort, hope and goals - a mindset that can be transposed anytime, anywhere. In How to Survive you will learn how this template for survival can be applied to any situation in your everyday life. Through gripping first-hand accounts of near disaster and survival stories from across the extreme world you will learn that by following these principles you can develop the mindset that will allow you to make better decisions under pressure, which are as equally applicable to first dates and presentations as to climbing Everest and getting lost at sea. 'When it comes to survival and getting out of trouble, listen to this man. John is the real deal' - Levison Wood
