Killer Outbreaks

Show Summary

Killer Outbreaks is a documentary series that analyzes the phenomena of disease. This program works with the Center for Disease Control to bring viewers more information about the epidemics that often spread across the globe. As viruses evolve into new strains, different and stronger types of medication are often needed to repress infection. Real life experiences are discussed and it is a frightening notion that the death of millions of people can come from just one person getting sick. The possibility of a global pandemic is even closer to becoming a realization, with the ease of travel that technology has brought. Humans face an even more dangerous risk, now more than ever. Every war is not without its heroes, however. The scientists at the CDC work around the clock to develop preventive measures and immunizations to keep various diseases from spreading. The series touches upon extremely volatile diseases, such as Anthrax, SARS, MRSA, and Salmonella. Killer Outbreaks is featured on Animal Planet.moreless
