COVID 19: THE WORLD IN DANGER premieres on Discovery Channel 9pm, Saturday 18th July

Within just a few months, the world as we knew it completely changed. What seemed like a local danger, began to spread to every continent before our eyes, bringing suffering, death, hunger and chaos.

COVID 19: THE WORLD IN DANGER is a one-off special giving a powerful, gripping testimony, of how the Covid pandemic has been fought all over the world and the devastation the virus has caused in both developed countries, like UK, Italy and the USA, but also in developing ones, like India, Iran or Ecuador.

 

 

From accounts of the whistleblowers who alerted the authorities about the suspicious and dangerous virus, to bloggers and activists documenting the spread of the epidemic online, to the frontline doctors and nurses risking their lives on a daily basis, in an attempt to try and save as many live as possible. This is a devastating look at the past four months, with stories from around the world.

 

 

With the rise of technology and global access to information, people have been able to see the crushing impact the virus has had and is having on humanity. Nowadays, everyone carries a camera phone and as a result, shocking footage has appeared online for all to see. But what about developing countries where the pandemic has spiralled out of control and where the full scale of its destruction is unlikely to ever be truly known to the rest of the world?

With expert analysis from a range of health, economic and anthropologic professionals showing different approaches to fighting the disease, COVID 19: THE WORLD IN DANGER is a universal story and a picture of the Earth in the Spring of 2020.
