The Coronavirus Podcast: the history of pandemics

COVID-19 is not the first time that a pandemic has ravaged a society and starting with the first recorded pandemic in Athens, during the Peloponnesian War, nearly every generation has had to deal with a deadly disease.

Professor Peter Curson is emeritus professor in the Department of Health Systems and Population at Macquarie University and the author of Deadly Encounters: How Infectious Disease Helped Shape Australia.

Curson joins host Conor Burke to talk about the history of pandemics.
