The History Of Pandemics
April 28, 2020
The coronavirus is new to us, but the massive impact plagues and pandemics can have on our society is not. Today we explore the history of pandemics with experts in history and the humanities. What can we learn from pandemics of the past? How much can modern medicine and technology help us, and in what ways are we still vulnerable?
We also talk about an initiative from the Indiana Historical Society to document how COVID-19 is affecting Hoosiers today.
