From Journeyman Pictures:
Mutated super bugs that could kill millions are being
engineered by scientists worldwide. But are their labs secure enough and
should bioterrorism fears prevent their research from being published?
Bird flu is already aggressively lethal but scientists have now
engineered a version of H5N1 that can be transmitted atmospherically,
and with devastating results. This controversial research has not only
divided the scientific community but also enraged global security
agencies concerned about bioterrorism. Some believe that the benefits of further
understanding such bugs far outweigh any imagined threats.
At the moment there's a tense truce between the camps but inevitably
the research projects will publish their work. For some experts it's
also possible that a super bug will one day escape the lab and go to
work on an unprepared world. So is it just a matter of time before an
outbreak of a devastating global pandemic?
