Présentation de l'éditeur
Imagine a killer with the infectiousness of the common cold and the power of the Black Death, a killer so deadly it destroys 90% of those it touches. Except you don't need to imagine. Such a killer exists. It is a virus and its name is Ebola.
Impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone is the terrifying, true-life account of when this highly infectious virus spread from the rainforests of Africa to the suburbs of Washington, D.C in 1989. A secret SWAT team of soldiers and scientists were quickly tasked with halting the outbreak. And they did. But now, that very same virus is back. And we could be just one wrong move away from a pandemic.
