A book for the post-Covid world, this is a fun and reassuring look into the amazing science behind saving the world from disease.

How to Vanquish a Virus is a funny, fascinating blend of facts, quotes and science stories from the world of health research and science history.

In the wake of Covid-19, children and parents are keen to understand - and be reassured about - viruses and other health issues. With over twenty years' experience of scientific research, Dr Paul Ian Cross sets out to answer all the questions we didn't know we needed answering until now. What does a virus look like? How does a virus get passed from person to person? How have viruses changed the world? And who are the men and women who have beaten them? With children leading the revolution, now is the time to understand the importance of making medicines ... and how to vanquish a virus. Any fans of Horrible Histories or Operation Ouch will love this book.
