From award-winning science journalist Dr Michael Mosley: the story of Covid-19, the greatest public health threat of our time
This book charts the trajectory of a novel virus, from its emergence in China at the end of 2019 to its rapid worldwide spread.
Based on the latest scientific discoveries, Dr Mosley provides a fascinating and detailed understanding of the secrets of this coronavirus, how it spreads, how it infects your body and how your immune system tries to fight back. With access to leading experts, he reports on the battle to find treatments and a safe and effective vaccine (ultimately, the only way to defeat the virus).
Armed with the facts about Covid-19 you'll be in a better position to protect yourself and your family as the world begins to reopen.
Eating well, sleeping soundly, exercising and managing stress are all vital for keeping your body and immune system in the best possible shape to fight the virus. These are areas where Dr Mosley, creator of the 5:2 diet, is well known for his science-based and practical approach.

I know both sides of the story (2nd one is opposite to official narrative) and I need to admit that this "book" is bunch of propaganda, lies and manipulation ignoring ocean of facts. I would not think I will find so flawed and biased "book".
As usual, it is well written and always interesting.
There are many excellent books explaining all this in much more detail, but Michael Mosley has cleverly stripped the detail down to the most important and relevant facts for the person in the street. “Covid-19” is well written, thoroughly researched, authoritative and unbiased.
If everyone spent just a couple of hours reading this book, there would be a far greater awareness of the terrible dangers of this virus by those who stupidly insist on rave parties and crowding on the beaches, thereby endangering all of us.
