Ebola. Possibly the most terrifying virus to ever exist. In 1995 the lethal virus reared its ugly head in Zaire, swiftly killing 77% of those affected. The entire village of Kikwit was quarantined in an attempt to confine this deadly virus and keep it from spreading to other regions. Nova was there. For four weeks Nova videotaped the aftereffects of this terrifying virus, watching as it slowly ate away at the core life systems if its victims. The virus slowly breaks down and dissolves the internal organs and connective tissues. Nova talks to the disease specialists studying Ebola and illuminates their many fears about combating the next outbreak, which they expect to be even more deadly and unstoppable than the Kikwit strand.
