Blood Virus: A Pandemic by Design
Thousands are dying and many more sickened as an unknown virus runs rampant through Western Africa. Its victims experience a violent death within a few days of exposure, so the CDC jumps in before the virus can become a global pandemic. They send their best man, Dr. Lennox Richards of the Epidemic Intelligence Service, to ground zero in Benin. Lennox heads up an international team of top specialists with the intent of identifying and possibly developing a vaccine to halt the virus’s progress. However, there’s a problematic variable: the virus is ethno-specific, killing only blacks and and leaving others with nothing more than a common cold. As an African American, the stakes have suddenly changed for Dr. Lennox Richards. The good doctor has yet to realize a more sinister plot is being waged with Benin as the initial test site for a bioengineered killer. A lethal plan is in effect to expose the world’s ethnic groups to a virus specific to their particular race–in other words, the implementation of an ethnic bomb. Once Lennox determines that Virus X is a bioweapon and with time running out, will he be able to stay alive long enough to halt the doomsday scenario that looms close at hand?
