The Asian Flu Pandemic of 1957, killing between 76,000 and 116,000 people in the United States alone, had a mortality rate three-times higher than that of the seasonal flu. Without the expertise and efforts of virologist Maurice Hilleman, many more would have died. The Asian Flu Pandemic of 1957 explores the causes, the spread, the effects on people's lives, as well as efforts to treat the disease and halt its spread.
