What's it about?

Living in a pandemic has made us more acutely aware of how viruses and bacteria spread, and of the importance of washing our hands. While some bacteria and viruses have upended the way we live and work, some can actually be helpful— and this collection tells you why. You'll discover how microorganisms cause disease, how they can protect or harm us, and which viruses have changed the course of history.
