Pandemia and Coronavirus book. The Andromeda Strain

Author: Michael Crichton

Michael Crichton’s 1969 book The Andromeda Strain (Vintage) centers on a group of scientists enduring an epidemic caused by an unknown extraterrestrial microorganism. After a military space probe sent to collect organisms from the upper atmosphere crashes onto Earth, a deadly phenomenon terrorizes the residents of an Arizona town, leaving only two survivors: an elderly addict and a newborn infant. The U.S. government is then forced to mobilize Project Wildfire, a top-secret emergency response protocol. Scientists race to try to comprehend and contain the unexpected crisis. Crichton’s book will get the sequel treatment from writer Daniel H. Wilson — best known for his New York Times best-selling book Robopacalypse and its sequel Robogenesis — who got approval from Crichton’s wife Sherri to tackle a new installment titled The Andromeda Evolution.
