It wasn't until her thirties that Columbian American essayist and memoirist Daisy Hernández learned that her aunt died from a rare infectious disease called Chagas (she had previously been led to believe the culprit was a rotten apple). Also known as the "kissing bug disease," Hernández discovered that Chagas is more prevalent in the States than the Zika virus; today, more than 300,000 Americans have it. In her new book, The Kissing Bug, the author questions why some infectious diseases make headlines while others fall by the wayside.
