Director: Michael Wech
Producers: Peter Wolf, Leopold Hoesch

Description:

The coronavirus has claimed millions of lives and brought the world to a standstill. Where did it come from? Who discovered it first? Who first shared the information outside of China? And who were the scientists that tried to make up for the lost time? The film explores the consequences of the exponential spread of a disease when valuable time is lost. Can the gap between scientific "preparedness" and official leadership be bridged to better handle future health crises?
