This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, tracks the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) around the world between November 2002 and June of 2003 from community to community. In addition, you can zoom in on the actual hospitals that handled hundreds of cases, the hotels where the disease was spread, the apartment complex where a large volume of people became ill, and the communities where SARS spread throughout the area. This map clearly shows the impact of air travel on the worldwide health of humans and the ability, or inability, to deal with such outbreaks. Of the 8,437 cases of SARS, less than 10% died.
