Description:
Our deadliest enemies are invisible to us. They evolve constantly and adapt in the most ingenious ways. They recognize no boundaries, natural and artificial, and confound even the wisest men and women, often creating a global panic. They are the viruses and bacteria of the twenty-first century. Unseen Enemy is a call-to-action from doctors and researchers braving the front lines, fighting the raging pandemics we hear so much about. This film follows the Ebola outbreak, a microcosm of all these issues and a sobering example of how unprepared we are to deal with even more deadly pandemics.

Biography:
