Professor Raoult Publishes a Book on Epidemics

The infectiologist and microbiology professor Didier Raoult, has just published a book entitled Epidemics, real dangers and false alarms, in which he advised treating people infected by Coronavirus with chloroquine (a substance normally used to cure malaria), triggering a worldwide debate between supporters and opponents of this idea. An entire chapter is devoted to the Coronavirus.

This book deals with a number of epidemics and viruses that humanity has faced in recent years, such as Anthrax, Ebola, bird flu, swine flu, SARS and Zika, among other famous deadly diseases, considering that their effects were not as serious as they have been conveyed by the world’s media, which often resort to news exaggeration in order to maximize sales, relying in particular on the strategy of catastrophism.

A specialist in emerging tropical infectious diseases at the Faculty of Medical and Paramedical Sciences in Marseille and the IHU Méditerranée Infection, Professor Raoult stressed in the same book that science has difficulty explaining certain events such as the accelerated transmission of epidemics when first started, their seasonal variation and their spontaneous disappearance for no apparent reason.

In the introduction to the book, he said: “All the frightening epidemics could not have caused more than 10,000 deaths, at a time when the world records 56 million deaths each year.

Internet users are circulating the book in PDF format, while several French newspapers, including Le Point, have published a number of its passages.
