Outbreaks of infectious disease pose some of the greatest public health risks to humans across the globe. Although an increasing number of preventative measures and cures are available against a number of these threats, many are still untreatable or have no remedy. However, the human response to these diseases has matured as increasing awareness and new scientific research emerges. This volume examines the many causes and effects of bacterial, viral, and other forms of disease, as well as the various steps taken over time to mitigate the damaging consequences of infection.
