The Sliders pay a short lived visit in an alternative San Francisco where everyone is rich as there is oil flowing.

They end up in a reality where a plague is rampaging, there are strict government controls, clinical cleanliness is rampant in shops, restaurants and hotels. The Sliders team are falling sick.

Professor Arturo finds that medicine available is basic.

Quinn Mallory of this world is Patient Zero of this deadly disease. Government agents allow the poor to die, the rich get proper healthcare.

It is Professor Arturo who realises that in this world Penicillin was never created. It is a race against time to make a formula to save lives.

Some people have commented on the parallels to the Covid 19 pandemic of 2020. That is just a stroke of luck, there are lots of stories dealing with deadly diseases.

The important part of the story here is the divide between rich and poor which results in the inequalities in healthcare.

I wonder if it is a coincidence that the Quinn Mallory is this world looked and talked like David Koresh!
