Microkillers

Never has humanity attained such a high level of technology as we enjoy today. However, progress in globalization does not guarantee the survival of our species on a planet still dominated by microkillers. The biological threat is composed of viruses, bacteria and parasites that have accompanied us since the beginning of time. But their epidemic potential represents a new challenge in a hyperconnected and fast-moving world. Emerging diseases, global health alerts, unknown viruses, new species of transmitter insects… Now, the Spanish researcher Pilar Mateo is journeying to places where our species’ health is in jeopardy. It is an adventure spanning thousands of kilometers over three continents in a search for microkillers.
