A HUNDRED YEARS AGO the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918 killed 50 MILLION PEOPLE WORLDWIDE. Not since the Black Death in the 1340s had something so radically affected humankind. It decimated the world’s population, and lowered the average American life expectancy by more than a decade.
If the same pandemic were to happen today, scientists fear the death toll would double over the same time period. As the world’s population balloons and our lives continue to shift to a global market, the threat grows. Flu vaccine technologies produce dismal results and there is still no method to contain the spread of the virus. And most importantly, there is no cure.
Every expert on the planet warns it’s not a matter of "if" but “when" the next pandemic will strike. This docu-series tracks efforts across the U.S.A. and around the world to discover the Origin of the next Pandemic, Stop the spread and prevent a hundred million deaths and Find a cure to protect billions of people worldwide with a universal vaccine.
