Description
Information
In 1997 the death of a young boy from the flu virus in Hong Kong provoked such alarm among experts that over one and a half million chickens - the animals acting as host to an unf amiliar strain of the disease - were slaughtered to prevent it spreading. The concern was understandable; in 1918 a mutant variety of the illness killed roughly forty million people worldwide.Catching Cold is the terrifying story of a plague from our recent past, of the small band of scientists trying to understand it and of their certainty that, unless they succeed, its return is just a matter of time.
