About this title

Synopsis:

Level 4: Virus Hunters of the CDC, is a memoir by America's most famous virus researchers. "Level 4" is the highest degree of laboratory containment for isolation and experimentation on microbiological organisms. Level-4 organisms produce lethal illnesses in humans and, for the most part, have no treatment and no prevention. Among the most infamous are the hemorrhagic viral diseases Ebola and Lassa Fever.

This is the story of those who hunt the emerging diseases making global headlines. Join husband-and-wife team Dr. Joseph B. McCormick and Dr. Susan Fisher-Hoch in their search for those who may be infected by these lethal viruses. You will travel through equatorial Africa, the ghettos and rainforests of Brazil, and through settlements in northern Pakistan. Both Dr. McCormick and Dr. Fisher-Hoch will offer their scientific knowledge about how and why these viruses are so lethal to humans and what can be done to prevent any kind of devastating epidemic from ever breaking out. The book shows how dedication, intelligence and courage can prevail--and give us hope for the future of global health.
