An African dance instructor in New York City is rushed to the hospital as his lungs begin to fall apart. Doctors find that he has anthrax, a lethal infectious disease. Fearing a mass outbreak, doctors and the Center for Disease Control search for the source of the anthrax, fearing terrorism or biological warfare. An experimental treatment saves the patients life, making him one of the first people to survive anthrax exposure. Also in the program, CDC investigators track down the source of a deadly strain of E. Coli after an outbreak leaves many young women and girls fighting for their lives.
