The Premonition: A Pandemic Story


| /

In January 2020, people began dying from a new virus in Wuhan, China. Few people truly understood the magnitude of what was happening. Except, that is, for a small group of scientific misfits who had been obsessed for years with how viruses spread and replicated - and with why governments and institutions that were supposed to look after us kept making the same mistakes time and again.

This group saw what nobody else did. A pandemic was coming. The world was not prepared.

The Premonition is the extraordinary story of a group who anticipated, traced and hunted the coronavirus as it spread within the USA; who understood the need to think differently, to learn from history, to question everything; and to do all of this fast in order to save lives and communities. It's a story about the workings of the human mind; about the failures and triumphs of human judgement and imagination; and about the politicisation of health care.  It's a gripping story, tremendously told.
