What's it about?

There was a time when, for some of us, a pandemic may have seemed like something happening far away or a just theoretical possibility. Now they're a reality for everyone, and they're nothing new. Pandemics have happened throughout history, and as science has evolved so has our understanding of them, and our ability to fight them. The Blinks in this collection will give you some insight into how the microorganisms that create outbreaks work, how outbreaks can grow into pandemics, and a look at historical pandemics that have allowed us to learn for the future.
