With so many people at home these days, it is a good time to catch up on some reading.

In this video, I recommend five books on the topic of infectious diseases that anyone with an interest in the topic should read.

Great books, by great authors like Robert Desowitz, Peter Hotez, Mike Osterholm, Steffanie Strathdee and Laurie Garrett.
