We’re constantly threatened by outbreaks of diseases like SARS and Ebola. Can we win the fight against a deadly unidentified infectious disease that has just been discovered at the Edinburgh Fringe? Or is the task of staying one step ahead now too much for scientists? How could this virus arise, where could it come from, and what could it mean for you? How fast will it spread from our very feet to the rest of the world? Join epidemiologist Liam Brierley to see if humans will win the struggle to survive.
