Hot Zone Part 2 Comments:
 
The second part of the Hot Zone was more focused then the first. It follows the story of a monkey testing plant that begins to show signs of sickness. All sorts of people become involved with the problem of the Monkey House in Reston, as the dead monkeys cells have to be examined and tested. When the cells test positive for Ebola Zaire, a dangerous virus that is rather unknown and until this point, only found in Africa, people go into a panic. No one is quite sure what the virus is capable of, or who should be in charge of the operation. I found that this part had more of a story line made it easier to follow then the first. The reader still gets to see each person’s role in the scenario, and their point of view, but each person’s story combines to create the overall event. I find it funny [maybe that’s not the right word] that each person who is pointing out the dangers of the virus say that it is so close to Washington.  I guess Washington is argueably, America’s most important city, but perhapsit would be more troublesome if the virus was near a more populated city.
