GERMS: THE ETERNAL ENEMY
A new disease is spreading across the country. With no known treatment, the death toll is climbing. The Centers for Disease Control must act before it becomes epidemic.
Where did it come from? CDC data say Utah! Could it have escaped from biological weapons abandoned there fifty years ago? The Army swears it couldn’t be theirs.
Anthrax-like but contagious and antibiotic-resistant: could this be a bioengineered weapon? Could this be a terrorist attack? Is this just the first wave?
The Army’s Institute for Biological Defense is the first line of medical defense against biological attack. Dedicated to defending the soldier against disease—whether indigenous or man-made—Army Medical Research Command labs attack disease head on. IBD’s Lt Col Uma Hees and CDC’s Dr. Jack Reagan race to discover the enemies—both microscopic and human.
