The Hot Zone (Paperback)

Richard Preston


In March 2014, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was first reported. By October 2014, it had become the largest and deadliest occurrence of the disease. Over 4,500 people have died. Almost 10,000 cases have been reported, across Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the United States. Impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone is the terrifying, true-life account of when this highly infectious virus spread from the rainforests of Africa to the suburbs of Washington, D.C in 1989. A secret SWAT team of soldiers and scientists were quickly tasked with halting the outbreak. And they did. But now, that very same virus is back. And we could be just one wrong move away from a pandemic.

Excellent, eye-opening read -

I could not put this book down, it is totally immersive, frightening, enthralling into the world of the most deadly 'hot' virus of our time. A brilliant book, truly keeps you riveted to keep reading. Finished it in two days flat. I would recommend this book highly if you read nothing else through the year then this should be be at the top of your list.
