The COVID-19 coronavirus seizes the world in 2020. From the likes of the plague, the Spanish Flu and SARS, these invisible enemies have changed our lives, bringing death and widespread fear. Yet, knowledge and the scientific quest for answers — along with a dogged sense of resilience — are our best weapons in the epic battle against pandemics. • Who is patient zero and what are super spreaders?
• When did the Theory of Germs begin?
• Why did scientists risk their own lives?
• How did history prevail against pesky pandemics? Former TV journalist Hwee Goh and historian/artist David Liew collaborate on a well-researched, fun book on key milestones of the pandemics that have shaped our world. The Change Makers series of books will build in children a strong sense of inquiry — to arm them with knowledge in S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) to tackle this brave new world of unknowns.
