Years ago, when I first read The Hot Zone, I thought it was the scariest thing I’d ever read. The author’s newest book on the continuing Ebola crisis earns a spot right next to that one.
Most of us probably don’t think about Ebola and other level 4 viruses very often. Why would we, after all? We are safely ensconced in our little cocooned worlds, far removed from these diseases. But we’re really not. One sick person undetected on an airline, going into a semi major city, still undetected, and before you know it there’s a full blown epidemic right at your door.
Sure, it got kinda scary several years ago when there were a few cases in the US. But they were quickly contained so all is well, right? Not really…
Read it, and be very concerned…
Buy It Now: Crisis in the Red Zone
Ooh I’m not sure my anxiety could handle a book like this if I’m honest. I get creeped out just thinking about the common cold.
Great review xo
