Disease Hunters

3 x 48 HD
Broadcaster:  Channel NewsAsia

What could cause the next pandemic? Meet the ‘Disease Hunters’, crack teams of international scientists on the frontlines who are racing to identify, study and kill infectious diseases, vectors and microbes.

 

With exclusive access, this sereis features leading scientists in Thailand, Singapore, Cambodia, Japan, Philippines, Iceland, India, UK and USA, and highlights international collaboration and data-sharing as they seek to keep pace with potential pathogens. It also connects today’s outbreaks with historical epidemics and explores factors that may accelerate future outbreaks like human-animal interactions, drug resistance, climate change, urbanisation and globalisation.

 

Through cinematic medical animations, three episodes uncover the unseen operations of viruses, bacteria and mosquito-borne diseases, and their treatments through vaccines, antibiotics and antibodies. Diseases discussed include COVID-19 coronavirus, influenza, H1N1 swine flu, polio, superbugs, tuberculosis, malaria and dengue.
