Summary "There is a flu potentially more deadly than anything the world has ever seen. According to scientists this new, deadly flu is just an evolutionary tick away from becoming highly contagious. In 1997 a mysterious new virus spread like wildfire through the live chicken markets of Hong Kong, and it was killing poultry with alarming speed. Then, to the shock of scientists, the virus jumped directly from birds to humans. Virus hunters slaughtered every chicken in Hong Kong. Shortly after, in 2003 a new strain of the virus ripped through poultry farms across South East Asia. Super Flu: Race Against A Killer looks into the future to see what would happen if a pandemic on the scale predicted were to happen today: social upheaval; the economy and normal functions of society brought to a standstill."
