February, 1969, deadly unidentified virus reported from remote African missionary hospital, two American nurses stricken, dead within 10 days. Doctors stymied by mysterious symptoms of the killer: soaring temperature, painful backache, swelling of the throat and neck, discolored skin. Latest victim airlifted to special isolation ward at New York's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, blood samples rushed to Yale's Arborvirus Laboratory, all-pout search launched to discover an antidote. U.S. Public Health authorities alarmed, virus has the potential to decimate whole populations, aviation officials consider cancellation of all jet travel to critical world areas.
