modern plagues


Last year I read The Coming Plague by Laurie Garret and it scared the hell out of me. Today I saw this WHO travel advisory that reminded me of it. Not being an alarmist, I took it in stride, but it made me wonder about the kinds of new diseases that we'll see in the next few years, and how fast they will spread. We definitely need some new thinking on how to approach disease and health care in general.
