Unseen Enemy is an essential exploration of reasons 21st-century populations are experiencing a rash of diseases that were once only outbreaks, but have now become full-blown epidemics. This increased risk that we face, and the ways society and individuals can work together to reduce that risk, are explained to the public through the case studies of three epidemics: Ebola, influenza and Zika. Moving across the globe, we meet doctors, disease detectives and everyday people who have stepped into the horror of an epidemic and emerged deeply changed. Epidemics bring out the best and worst of human behavior, with effects reaching far beyond the tolls of sickness and death.
By now you know this documentary is about virus outbreaks, pandemics. It's only about recent pandemics. It also tells you that these serious pandemics are serious, caused by viruses. Serious pandemics all start in wild animals and then move to humans causing suffering and misery. Watch this documentary if you doubt that, as that fact is repeated over and over and over. Between these endless stories of human suffering there are some medicians saying they do their best but that its not easy. Then there is nothing more, amazingly.
Unseen Enemy lasts 1 hour and 38 mins but can be summed up in 15 seconds. Unless you want to watch endless human suffering and helpless medical doctors, spare yourself from watching this. You can still realize pandemics are serious.
