In July of 1967, In Motaba River Valley, Zaire, a virus with a 100% mortality rate starts infecting people. The virus becomes known as the Motaba virus, and it's so deadly that it causes severe bleeding and liquefies internal organs, killing within 3 days. The virus wipes out Motaba River Valley, and a devastatingly huge fire bomb is dropped onto Motaba River Valley in order to reduce the chances of further infection. The bomb was dropped on the orders of corrupt General Donald McClintock, even though an army surgeon, General Bill Ford, was against the idea. 27 years later, in 1994, there is another outbreak in Motaba River Valley. At the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), located at Fort Detrick in Maryland, Colonel Sam Daniels is doing research on the Motaba virus, and so is his ex-wife Roberta Keough, who works at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.

The monkey shown as the host is a White-headed Capuchin, a species native to Central and South America. This conflicts with the setting of the original virus in Zaire, Africa. See more »
The H-6 only has a range of 267 miles. Looking at the direction as Daniels and Salt are flying the helicopter along the coast line, it is clear that they are flying south from Cedar Creek to San Francisco. Now, there are five Cedar Creeks north of San Francisco, the closest one located 180 miles northeast of San Francisco. This Cedar Creek is far from the coast though. The Cedar Creek that is closest to the coast is a whopping 323 miles away, so the flight to SFO and back plus standing in the air against the plane would never have worked without refueling. All of the Cedar Creeks are real creeks anyway, and uninhabited. When preparing for the way back to Cedar Creek Daniel mentions a town called Palisades between San Francisco and Cedar Creek. There is no such town. See more »
Hoffman is a U.S. Army doctor who specializes in disease control, and is burdened with personal problems following a recent divorce. He and his research team have their work cut out for them when they're assigned to try and contain a new, terrifyingly deadly virus that's made its way from Africa and caused an unprecedented epidemic in a small U.S. coastal town. It's a race against time as they try and locate the host animal carrying the virus, as well as save the lives of the town inhabitants before his Army superiors can carry out their own agenda. Suspenseful, well-crafted thriller is not always surprising, but it is believable and acted with conviction by a dynamite cast. ***
