The Coming Plague
I read it years ago and it scared the shit out of me. It's a huge book, but you can't put it down. She is a treasure.

I want to recommend this excellent book. She wrote it quite a few years ago, but everything she said would happen is happening now. It's written in plain language and yes, it will make your hair stand on end, especially now.

Pulitzer Prize winner, etc.

Betrayal of Trust, the Collapse of Global Public Health which is probably far more pertinent to what's happening today.

It was Chris Hayes instead.

Maybe at 7? Nope. Brian Williams again again again.

You guys are lucky.
