Dragon Harper by Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey

This is the last of the mother and son books, so far at least, and it starts after the first one. There's a brief mention of part of the second book. This has another illness problem where many holders, healers, and harpers die. The person who figures things out is Kindan, the protagonist of the first book. He thinks of mood stones to put on foreheads to see temperatures, thinks of masks, thinks of fruit, and then thinks of having the dragonriders & dragons working with the beasts and grain so the people who survive the flu won't starve. It's the dragonriders who bring all that stuff and drop it because Thread is too close to risk the riders. Ir seemed to have a very firm end, as if this is the end of the group of books.
