Since the COVID-19 outbreak at the beginning of 2020, the number of positive cases and deaths have been climbing, with news reports of a possible 'second wave' by the end of the year. The conflicting reports from media, governments, and scientific experts have instilled fear in many and suspicion in others, dividing countries and opinions. As humanity faces some of the most difficult and uncertain times of the 21st century, how are we to gain any clarity or comfort? With 20 years of experience in scientific research, COVID-19: From Chaos To Cure by Dale Yuzuki breaks down the basic facts and background surrounding the outbreak, treatments, and research that are currently being carried out behind the scenes. This guide will educate you on the fundamental basics so you can analyze the data for yourself. Discover what research is being carried out, the vigorous stages that a vaccine trial must pass before it is approved, and the data behind hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). Dale Yuzuki will also break down the evidence behind many topics of debate such as herd immunity, the wearing of face masks, and the accuracy of the PCR test. Knowledge is power and in these unprecedented times of unpredictability, it is vital that we have calmness and an optimistic view of the future.

Like everyone else in the world at the moment, I have been searching for answers to many questions around the COVID-19 virus. COVID-19: From Chaos To Cure by Dale Yuzuki is such a well-written and exceptionally detailed guide that explains the history, background, and current research being carried out. I have learned so much regarding how the structure of the DNA is used for research and the complexities around the immune system. I was impressed with the levels of scientific advancement that have been made since the 1980s, especially around the introduction of the PCR test in 1985. The robust selection process of possible vaccines was the most reassuring and will dispel many worries and concerns for people. The guide is also filled with easy-to-understand diagrams that break down everything so even someone with no scientific knowledge can understand the data. You will not only gain a deeper insight into the virus and how the infection is spread but also such an appreciation and respect for the scientists and researchers who work tirelessly to advance treatments for this virus and others. I found the work of Dr. Paul Marik (Marik Protocol) and his alternative medicine treatments absolutely fascinating. The final chapter is so uplifting and lays out the reasons why the future is one we should not dread or fear.

COVID-19: From Chaos to Cure: The Biology Behind the Fight Against the Novel Coronavirus by Dale Yuzuki is a non-fiction resource that digs below the superficial data provided to the general public to explain the true forecast of where we are and where we might expect to be. Over the course of twelve distinct and comprehensive chapters, Yuzuki covers a wide-ranging scope of detail from the biological background of humans to the revolutionary Genome Project, breakthroughs, the importance of proper testing, transmission, and treatment to the background of vaccines and a bit of optimism that ultimately the likelihood of managing and containing most of the pandemic will occur, and that we will be prepared for future outbreaks of other viruses as well.

There is a lot to unpack in COVID-19: From Chaos to Cure and I admit it took me much longer to read and process than most other books. Dale Yuzuki makes it clear that the narrative is approachable to those with just a cursory understanding of science and mathematics, but I still found the content on the heavier side and I probably have a stronger grasp on biology than the average reader, growing up in a household where my father described his religion as 'academic'. Still, the information is critical to a worldwide population being delivered bite-sized morsels of misinformed or misunderstood facts. My favorite chapter was seven, and the insight on the layering of immunity over the history of mankind. In the interest of full disclosure, I have personally tested positive for both SARS-CoV-2 antibodies but was 100% asymptomatic. I only disclose this because it definitely heightened my interest in Yuzuki's work. Overall, this book goes above and beyond the information provided in similar texts, and I imagine a great many readers will find it as informative as I have.

At the time of this review, Dale Yuzuki’s COVID-19 From Chaos to Cure: The Biology Behind the Fight Against the Novel Coronavirus is up to date, with valuable information on COVID-19, therapeutics, and vaccine development—a very timely book to read. This book contains great detail behind the science of DNA and COVID and would be very useful for those interested in that level of the subject matter.

The book begins with more of an overview of scientific research, DNA research especially. The history of research with pandemics and vaccines is explained well in the first few chapters. For those without a great deal of science background, the first chapters may be more detailed than desired; however, the chapters on COVID-19 are very informative—so hang in there. The COVID-19 information is the “gold” of this book, along with explaining how vaccines and therapeutics work. The author goes into great detail on the history of how COVID has developed during this period of time and what has led to the acceptance and approval of certain therapeutics to treat COVID. In addition, the discussion of those vaccines currently being studied is also very timely.

There is no question that this book is well researched and it will appeal to the scientific mind. This is an important book for those interested in learning very specific information. COVID-19 From Chaos to Cure: The Biology Behind the Fight Against the Novel Coronavirus by Dale Yuzuki brings valuable information to make us more informed citizens and the science behind the fight against COVID. Thank you, Mr. Yuzuki, for your book during this important time when citizens need information.

COVID-19: From Chaos to Cure: The Biology Behind The Fight Against The Novel Coronavirus by Dale Yuzuki, M.A. M.Ed gives good insights on how the world is tackling this pandemic and will help readers to understand the COVID-19 diagnostics, treatments, and the current worldwide efforts that are underway to produce a vaccine. The book also throws light on the mysteries of the immune system and the history of vaccines for non-experts and will give hope to readers about finding a vaccine that will put an end to this pandemic. For a non-scientist, reading about a 'second wave' is scary and the social media updates only amplify the confusion. This book breaks down some of the basics of how the COVID-19 pandemic is being addressed and gives some background information that will help bring some calm through the fear.

The first section of COVID-19: From Chaos to Cure covers some 70 years of breakthroughs and the development of industrial biotechnology from its earliest discoveries to the recent process. Dale Yuzuki also speaks about the proposal of DNA structure, the invention of determining DNA sequence, the discovery of enzymes that cut DNA at particular sequences, the invention of PCR, the discovery of antibodies, the invention of being able to produce engineered antibodies, and an outline of related Nobel Prizes as a convenient shorthand for the major discoveries of biology and applied biotechnology. With news of different kinds, basic research, and the results from various clinical trials, it seems like we are past the beginning and in a position to see the end of this worldwide pandemic that has already claimed a lot of lives.
