Abstract:

(Producer) NOVA looks at the global impact of a lethal disease-- meningitis. For reasons that are not yet understood, teenagers are particularly vulnerable to this deadly bacterial infection. In a period of less than 48 hours, flu-like symptoms can develop into multi-system failures. With lives in the balance, NOVA goes behind scenes to understand what makes this infection so lethal and to examine what science is doing to stem its brutal spread.
