The next part of Hot zone is more directed at the arrival and spread of the disease in the United States. I found the fact that a disease we always think about being “over there” and away from us could make it all the way to the United States and kill U.S. citizens.  It scares me a lot that such a dangerous and gruesome virus could kill me or even someone I know rather than a person thousands of miles away and in a 3rd world country. Because of the fact that this part focuses more on the diseases spread domestically it makes the book easier to read and more intense. All in all I enjoy the book although it can be tough to motivate myself to read.
