The premonition : a pandemic story / Michael Lewis
The true story of America's response to the COVID-19 pandemic could read like a thriller where naysaying leadership faces medical visionaries who refuse to follow directives they know to be based on misinformation and bad science. A secret team of dissenting doctors nicknamed the Wolverines has the resources to fight the pandemic, local public-health officials have unique perspectives into society that the CDC misses, even a young student's science project provides a model for disease control, but all know even their communications are a risk in this age of surveillance.
