If you’re not losing sleep over the next pandemic, you likely haven’t heard of Harvard Medical School public health professor Jonathan Quick. In his compelling editorial, Quick details ways in which a swift-moving virus could kill millions of us in less than a year. The scenarios he paints are horrific, but Quick also provides sensible solutions to prevention, which could save millions of lives and billions of dollars. He cites the way the global AIDS/HIV prevention and treatment efforts slowed the progress of the disease and provides a roadmap for dealing with the next big public health threat.
