A Timeline of Historical Pandemics
Disease and illnesses have plagued humanity since the earliest days, our mortal flaw. However, it was not until the marked shift to agrarian communities that the scale and spread of these diseases increased dramatically.
Widespread trade created new opportunities for human and animal interactions that sped up such epidemics. Malaria, tuberculosis, leprosy, influenza, smallpox, and others first appeared during these early years.

on the website www.visualcapitalist.com you will find a timeline of historical pandemics. A very interesting deepening on the comparison between this new pandemic and the past that have hit humankind.

Why outbreaks like coronavirus spread exponentially, and how to “flatten the curve”
A Washington Post in-depth analysis on why does the virus spread at an exponential rate, and what techniques can be used to mitigate that spread.

Decoding CoViD-19
There are seven types of coronaviruses that are contagious for humans. Four types (NL63, 229E, OC43 and HKU1) are responsible for 15 to 30% of the world’s common cold cases every year and are considered endemic.
South China Morning Post made a quick comparison on 7 Coronavirus to better understand how they works.

Myth busters
From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather. Regardless of climate, adopt protective measures if you live in, or travel to an area reporting COVID-19. The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by frequently cleaning your hands. By doing this you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.

Genomic epidemiology of novel coronavirus
Nextstrain is an open-source project to harness the scientific and public health potential of pathogen genome data. We provide a continually-updated view of publicly available data alongside powerful analytic and visualization tools for use by the community.
Nextstrain uses genetic data from viruses to help scientists track the spread of disease outbreaks. A project by Richard Neher and Trevor Bedford.
