The writer of a new book on the pandemic, “Panda,” says he was “bewildered” by the amount of deaths the pandemics could have prevented.
“If we had done anything different, we could have saved thousands of lives,” Michael Gove said in an interview with CNN.
“I’m not saying it was a bad thing, I’m just saying we shouldn’t have been so foolish.”
Gove, a British-American author, says the book has sparked a conversation about the future of pandemic preparedness.
He says the world’s first pandemic had a large impact on how people responded to the pandems outbreak, and he thinks there’s still a lot we can learn from it.
“It’s not just about the pandemia, it’s about how we respond to future crises, which we will always have to do,” Gove told CNN.
He said he wants to see a more proactive approach to preparing for future crises.
“This is an emergency, it is going to be here for a long time, it will be with us for many decades,” he said.
The book, titled “The Great Pandemic: The Untold Story of the First, Second, Third, and Fourth Pandemics” will be published in September. “
What I want to do is to give people the knowledge they need to be able to respond in the way that they want to be prepared for the next crisis.”
The book, titled “The Great Pandemic: The Untold Story of the First, Second, Third, and Fourth Pandemics” will be published in September.
It focuses on how we can prepare for the future, as well as what can be done to avoid the worst-case scenario.
“The problem with trying to prepare for a new pandemic is you can’t,” Gave said.
He believes it’s better to focus on things that have already happened before the pandemaker pandemic hit.
“When you look back in time, you can see what the situation was like before and what the conditions were, how much it cost and how much people were willing to pay,” he told CNN, “So we can use that to guide us in the future.”
Gave has a strong view on the importance of being prepared.
“People should be aware that we’re not there yet,” he added.
Goyette said Gove’s book has also inspired him to write another book about how to prepare. “
So I’m not going to tell you that it’s not possible, it won’t be a disaster, and it won’s not a disaster.”
Goyette said Gove’s book has also inspired him to write another book about how to prepare.
“There’s a lot that I want in the world, but I want my people to know that they can do it, and they can take their lives in their hands,” he wrote on his blog.
“They can save a whole lot of people’s lives.”
