From Our Editors

Today's news reports are full of stories about new viruses and plagues, from Ebola and mad cow disease to AIDS and flesh-eating viruses. If we can't stop the rise of unheard-of microbes, is it possible some lethal and incurable virus may spread over a doomed humanity as easily as the common cold? Virus X explores this question, taking readers into the "hot zones," research labs and hospitals where the answer is to be found.
