The Fatal Strain: On the Trail of Avian Flu and the Coming Pandemic

A riveting account of why technology by myself can’t cease the following pandemic

Outbreaks of avian and swine flu have reawakened fears that had lain dormant for almost a century, ever because the influenza pandemic of 1918 that killed no less than 50 million humans world wide. while a hugely deadly pressure of avian flu broke out in Asia lately and raced westward, the Washington Post’s Alan Sipress chased the rising chance because it infiltrated distant jungle villages, mountain redoubts, and teeming towns. He tracked the virus throughout 9 nations, staring at its secrets and techniques again and again elude the world’s brightest scientists and so much intrepid disorder hunters. Savage and mercurial, this novel influenza strain—H5N1—has been known as the kissing cousin of the Spanish flu and, with quite a few genetic tweaks, may possibly kill hundreds of thousands of individuals. None people is immune.

The deadly pressure is a fast-moving account that weaves cultural, political, and medical strands right into a story of inevitable epidemic. In his brilliant portrayal of the fight among guy and microbe, Sipress chronicles the accelerating variety of close to misses and explores the tough dynamic that has frequently made Asia the fountainhead of killer flu traces. much more than glossy medication, it really is poultry smugglers, struggling with cock breeders, and witch medical professionals who may possibly ascertain the evolution of this viral risk through permitting it to reproduce and rushing it on its way.

The ease of foreign go back and forth and the fragile stability of today’s international economic climate have left the realm susceptible to pandemic in a fashion the sufferers of 1918 may by no means think. however it is human failings which could pose the best peril. Political bosses in kingdom after nation have lined up outbreaks. historic customs, like buying and selling in reside fowl and the ritual free up of birds to earn non secular advantage, have didn't adapt to the microbial possibility. The world’s filthy rich international locations have left poorer, frontline international locations with no reasonable vaccines or different guns for confronting the affliction, fostering a feeling of complaint that endangers us all.

The chilling fact is that we don’t have command over the H5N1 virus. It keeps to unfold, thwarting efforts to uproot it. And because it does, the viral cube proceed to roll, threatening to supply a virulent disease pressure that's either lethal and will unfold as simply because the universal chilly. Swine flu has reminded us that flu epidemics ensue. Sipress reminds us anything a long way worse can be brewing.
