Synopsis

This fascinating inside look at the Centers for Disease Control is more thrilling--and much scarier--than any work of fiction. Focusing on the CDC's top investigators and their most compelling stories, Virus Ground Zero follows the disease cowboys as they do battle with such unseen foes as hantavirus, Ebola, polio, and Crimean-Congo hemorrahagic fever.
