From award-winning science journalist Dr Michael Mosley: the story of Covid-19, the greatest public health threat of our time…

This book tells the story from the emergence of a novel virus in China at the end of 2019 to its rapid worldwide spread. It will give you a detailed understanding of the virus, how it jumps from person to person, and how it can be overcome. It includes interviews with leading doctors and virus researchers working at the front line in the battle to defeat this microscopic enemy.

As well as looking at the race to find new treatments and an effective vaccine (which will be the only way to ultimately halt the spread of the virus), Dr Mosley will show you how you can protect yourself and your family and ward off infection as the world begins to reopen and lockdown is eased.

Eating well, sleeping well, doing exercise and managing your stress are all critical for keeping your brain, body and immune system in the best possible shape over the coming months. These are areas where Dr Mosley is well known for his science based and practical approach.
