The video recording of the 111th Open Lecture, “Disease in the Late Edo Period” (lecturer: Dr. M. William Steele), is now available on the ICU OpenCourseWare. In the lecture, depictions of diseases, from measles, cholera to the Coronavirus, were discussed from a historical point of view.
In addition, we have also made available a PDF file of the Q&A, in which Dr. Steele answered later all the questions received from audiences during the Q&A session.
