The authorities order a curtain of secrecy and impose quarantine on all known contacts whilst embarking on a desperate search for a cure. Meanwhile one of the people in quarantine escapes and becomes the unwitting carrier of the disease.

In a gripping gripping built up of events, the full horror of the plague becomes public and the onslaught has to be stopped before all human life on Earth is destroyed. Written by Anonymous

Not Enough Action To Survive This Plague
7 September 2018 | by charlieosoSee all my reviews

A deadly bacteria is accidentally created and now has escaped the lab. It is now running rampant through the streets of Toronto. The most brilliant minds (including Kate Reid) are trying to come up with a solution to this potential worldwide problem while a woman who acts as the carrier of the plague has escaped and is infecting people. You might enjoy if you like watching people in white suits working in labs. But, I like more action than that. Would have worked a lot better if a Canadian filmmaker like David Cronenberg worked on it. Then it would have had the punch I was looking for.
