Published April 2020. Starting with an account of the war on smallpox, from Jenner’s experiments with cowpox in 1796 to the surveillance-based campaign that eradicated the disease by 1977, the health journalist Meera Senthilingam discusses topics including the political dimension of epidemics, anti-vaccination movements, and crossover infection, while describing the epidemiological battles against diseases, whether ancient afflictions such as leprosy, TB and Guinea worm, or the present Covid-19 pandemic. From the Hot Science series.
