Take a deep dive into the socio-political and economic origins of the Covid-19 disaster, and the disproportionate effects of infectious diseases on BIPOC, as Rob Wallace talks about his book Dead Epidemiologists with Joseph Graves of Science for the People
The COVID-19 pandemic shocked the world. It shouldn’t have. Dead Epidemiologists reveals the hidden-in-plain-sight truth behind the pandemic: Global capital drove the deforestation and development that exposed us to new pathogens. From deepest Yunnan to the boardrooms of New York City, this book offers a compelling diagnosis of the roots of COVID-19, and a stark prognosis of what—without further intervention—may come.
