How A Deadly Disease Could Spread Worldwide






” A team of experts have created a video showing how a deadly virus would spread across the world.

  With over three billion passengers travelling by air every year, researchers have found that diseases and viruses can travel far faster and more effectively through busy airports than around cities in the same country.
