Full description for The Fatal Strain
In 2009, Swine Flu reminded us that pandemics still happen, and award- winning journalist Alan Sipress reminds us that far worse could be brewing. When a highly lethal strain of avian flu broke out in Asia in 2003 and raced westward, Sipress, as a reporter for "The Washington Post", tracked the virus across nine countries, watching its secrets elude the world's brightest scientists and most intrepid disease hunters. A vivid portrayal of the struggle between man and microbe, "The Fatal Strain" is a fast-moving account that weaves cultural, political, and scientific strands into a tale of inevitable pandemic.
