Killer pathogens constantly are evolving, increasing in strength and numbers. Every day, deadly diseases like West Nile, Monkey Pox and MRSA mutate at a rate that far outpaces modern medicine. Every one is vulnerable, but medical science is not without heroes. From small town doctors at community hospitals to top scientists at the Centers for Disease Control, the battle is being waged on all fronts. In a mortal battle against a ticking clock, doctors and specialists must work together to uncover the source of mysterious illnesses. Only then can they hope to combat these deadly pathogens, save lives and stop the devastation from becoming endemic.

Episode summary:

After a large earthquake rattles Los Angeles, many people become ill with flu-like symptoms. Doctors first believe that the patients have meningitis, but tests reveal the outbreak to be valley fever. Valley fever is caused by a fungus that normally lies dormant in the ground. Once in the body, the fungus can affect the brain, and requires painful treatment. Also in the program, millions of eggs are recalled after they are linked to a salmonella outbreak across the United States. Investigators are concerned when they find that the salmonella is in the egg rather than on the shell.
