If you haven't read it, The Hot Zone is a non-fiction biological thriller that documents Ebola and Marbug outbreaks the around the mid 1900s, one including an outbreak of Ebola Zaire in Washington DC (there are three types of viruses in the Filovirus Family: Marbug - 25% kill rate, Ebola Sudan - 50 -70% kill rate, and Ebola Zaire - 90% kill rate) There is no cure, or even a vaccine. I've been reading this, and it's genuinly terrifying. Not only because Ebola is such an awful disease, but the fact is that this is real, and it will eventually show its deadly head again in the world. Have you read this book? And if you have, why did you like/dislike it? Do you have any other suggestions for me that are like The Hot Zone? Please share you thoughts on this book or the like.
