The Hot Zone

- Author name: Richard Preston
- Date published: 1994

In 1992, Richard Preston wrote an article for the New Yorker titled “Crisis in the Hot Zone.” This essay was the foundation for his 1994 nonfiction thriller “The Hot Zone,” about an outbreak of the Reston virus in Washington D.C. among a group of imported monkeys in a lab. The book goes on to touch on similar viruses that are deadly to humans—think the Ebola virus, Sudan virus, Marburg virus, or Ravn virus—and how easily-transmutable they are, how horrific the symptoms can be, and how quickly they can wipe out large portions of the population.
