Storyline

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.

WARNING !
21 January 2019 | by smsudusingheSee all my reviews

A magnificent documentary about how epidemics occurred in the past and will happen again in the future due to the vast population of the planet. Director's point was to warn us that it is very possible that a new deadly virus will start again and if it happened how easily and quickly they can spread through continents. Nobody has any idea about how this invisible enemy will reach you and silently kill you.

This eye-opening documentary will scare you and will pull you up to the reality. Earth isn't as stable as you think.
