4 Outbreak

The film is about the spread of a virus named Motaba and looked a lot like Ebola. In the movie, the virus caused a deadly fever and was first discovered in the jungles of Africa.

The film also showed the limits that can be exceeded by the government to control or stop the spread of the virus. What doesn't go well for many people, however, is the fact that in the movie the vaccine develops in less time, when in reality it takes months or years to develop a vaccine.
