In Pandemic: Tracking Contagions, from Cholera to Coronaviruses and Beyond, the science journalist Sonia Shah draws on historical sources, reportage and personal narrative to explore the genesis of epidemics. She forges parallels between cholera and the scores of recent diseases that have cropped up in the last fifty years, and looks closely at the MRSA bacterium as well as the coronavirus.
