About

Overview

The Gale Encyclopedia of Emerging Diseases (GEED) will be a comprehensive guide and unique source of information on infectious diseases that have either lately appeared for the first time in a population or have recently rapidly increased in incidence. This title is an exciting new addition to the successful Gale Encyclopedia of … health line of products. The articles avoid medical jargon and use language that laypersons can understand while still providing authoritative, balanced information that addresses the pathogens that are causing and threaten to cause significant health crises. Ebola, Lassa Fever, MERS, Rift Valley Fever, and Zika virus are among the diseases that will be covered.
