And, forgive my bluntness, but this idea seems to be very…vague, as of now.
And knowledge of the symptoms leading to infection seems rather similar to SCP-1025 (though this is merely the first thing that came to mind.) The concept with the book is that, when particular pages are read detailing on certain diseases, the person becomes infected, thus meaning knowledge gained from the book leads to infection.

Good luck in your writing!
