it was amazing
bookshelves: virus
Read from April 21 to 24, 2011

The short history of the little understood, but well known, virus Ebola. Written in a dramatized fashion, this non-fiction history of the people that worked to understand, control, and prevent the spread of this Level 4 virus was an interesting and complelling read. Needfully graphic in it's depiction, you get a full understanding of what the virus does to the human body. The short history also does a very good job at explainind how the pioneer work, and the difficulties involved, of the US Army's biological containment branch works. Let's just say that they are good at getting their act together quickly.
* I just had to completely re-insatll my pc, and I have yet to add a spell check button.. So, yeah, something is probably misspelled in this.
