For Writers: Diseases of the Future

germs

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Hank T. Cannon:

There is a certain percentage of the population that cannot catch AIDS as their cells are missing the receptors that allow the AIDS virus to enter the cell. Per a TV show a year or two ago, on the Science channel as I recall, this genetic difference also seems to aid in surviving Bubonic Plague. Anyone done a story which explores this difference and its possible origin or whether in the future it will spread to more of the population? I see possibilities.

It’s an interesting question. What would the diseases of the future be like? How might they be transmitted? And will some people be immune?
