The tone is often intensely frightening. These scientists are doing their best to contain viruses that could wipe out humanity. Although the heroics and know how of scientists are commendable, I always got the feeling that it won't be long before a virus gets away on us. What is more immediately frightening is our overuse of antibiotics which has rendered many of them useless or weak against viruses.
