THE HISTORY OF HUMANITY’S STRUGGLE against disease is a major part of the history of civilization. From the Black Death in Europe in the 14th century, to smallpox in North America in the 16th century, to the Spanish Flu outbreak in 1918, to the COVID-19 pandemic that ravaged the world in early 2020, the struggle between humans and various epidemics has never stopped.
