Just as climate change affects the most disempowered demographics across the world in ever-more susceptible degrees, the harm viruses cause is not a question of science alone. In his timely new book, The Viral Underclass: The Human Toll When Inequality and Disease Collide, scholar and journalist Dr. Seven W.
