I find myself increasingly reading books about the most catastrophic event of our lives the COVID pandemic Of course one benefit of the pandemic is being at home thus with time to read restaurants are a thing of the past As an American passport holder hopefully the same is not true about Europe and the rest of the worldThe author Nicholas A Christakis is a medical doctor and a Professor of Social and Natural Science at Yale He writes lucidly providing a clear exposition of the state of the pandemic in America by the end of the summer of 2020 He summarizes the major historical pandemics commencing with the oldest epic in Western Civilization the Iliad from which he derives his title Many of the Greek troops that were besieging Troy were struck down by the plague though it may not have been the bubonic one Homer used the literary device that they were struck down by Apollo s arrows Christakis provided me some new information for example the Spanish flu of 1918 19 might have originated in Kansas He also provided new ways of thinking about the pandemic it has a both a medical and sociological component And he devoted an entire chapter as to how this pandemic might END which is a rarity among other books and certainly the daily media with its focus on well the daily numbers My key indicator of an important book are the number of passages that I have marked or as is the case with this work which was read on my Kindle highlighted I have highlighted portions on most pagesChristakis says that up to a million Americans would have died by late summer 2020 if no action had been taken He acknowledges that COVID 19 is still very much a moving target with much unknown and outcomes changing based on our actions Chapter One is a description of how the disease arose in China as well as America s initial blunders in dealing with it when it came to our shores Americans had put on blindfolds when they should have put on masks The lack of testing was a huge blunder Note we are still struggling with terminology conventions most of the time he refers to the disease of COVID 19 as deriving from the virus SARS 2 with 1 having been the almost non contagious one of 2003 4 that had to be obtained directly from the animal and not another human He tells the story how it was Edward Lorenz in 1972 who posited the chaos theory whereby small changes in initial parameters greatly change the outcomes and is often described as a butterfly s wings beating in China causing a tornado in Kansas an apt metaphor for this pandemicAs the epigraph for several chapters he uotes from that venerable pied noir Albert Camus specifically from his 1947 novel La Peste the Plague which struck the town of Oran in French Algeria in 1849 Camus wrote the novel during the Second World War in Le Mazet Saint Voy a very small village high in the Auvergne In Chapter Two the author describes other historical pandemics and how each is different in its own way commencing with the recent SARS 1 then on to the Spanish flu of 1918 19 and various other minor ones such as the influenza of 1957 as well as the true mother of all pandemics commonly referred to as the Black Death of 1347 48 that killed up to half the population of Europe and reuiring a century until the demographics were restoredThis work is meaty with a lot of solid information He discusses in detail the various non pharmaceutical interventions such as the wearing of masks as well as the pharmaceutical ones such as the development of antibiotics and vaccines Vaccines can be created in several different ways For all the focus in the media about how a vaccine will be our salvation Christakis states that it will not matter much Eventually by 2022 there should be herd immunity in America and by 2024 gulp we will be in the post pandemic periodI appreciated the fact that he frankly gave the CDC a grade of F for the test kit fiasco Further he uotes some of the health care charlatans about the availability of PPEs and how the pandemic will be no big deal His own assessment The lack of scientific literacy capacity for nuance and honest leadership hurt us One way that pandemics end is that the virulence of the virus attenuates Of interest was his description of the influenza that struck St Petersburg Russia in 1890 and moved on to London and Europe killing many which may be the origin of what we call the common cold It should also be noted that he does succinctly cover our OTHER current pandemic HIVAIDSActions still not being taken Christakis says that virtually nothing is being done on educating the general public on public health matters I fully agreeI felt that he was weak only when he strayed into the economic ramifications of the pandemic and wish he had been as blunt as to why the stock market is at record highs as to his assignment of an F on test kits Yes the lack on honest leadership has hurt usOverall an excellent and informative read 5 stars plus
