Question — Was this pandemic forecast in 1981 by Frank Herbert, author of the novel "God Emperor of Dune"? I quote (and with my added parentheses): "... (the government) may even go so far as introducing a new disease which can only be suppressed by melange (drug). Although this may appear farfetched, it should not be discarded out of hand. Stranger things have happened, and we should not overlook the role of syphilis in early human history."

Room for thought?
