MWV Episode 73 - Shutting Down the Government: Yellow Fever and Anthrax

How can something too small to be seen with the naked eye be powerful enough to bring down something like the U.S. Government? It turns out that microbes, mostly invisible, have the extraordinary capacity to affect our lives ā€“ through outbreaks of disease and the spread of fear. Twice in history, microbes have even brought the U.S. Government to a halt!

Filmed live at the D.C. headquarters of the American Society for Microbiology, learn more about the Yellow Fever outbreak of 1792 that caused the fledgling Congress to flee and the Anthrax scare of 2001 that also shut down government buildings and agencies.

 

 

Guest speakers include ...

Dr. Marshall Bloom, Rocky Mountain Laboratories, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease
Dr. Douglas Beecher, Federal Bureau of Investigation
