Discovery is sounding the alarm facing the next worldwide pandemic with the global premiere of “Mosquito” on July 6th. The upcoming documentary, Narrated by Oscar® nominated Jeremy Renner, focuses attention on the Mosquito, the single greatest agent of death in modern human history, and has become a global crisis.
“Recent news coverage around the globe has highlighted individual outbreaks of diseases such as Zika, malaria, West Nile virus, yellow fever, chikungunya, and dengue. But there is a bigger story to be told, one that connects the dots between these diseases and reveals how a single force is driving them all: the unceasing, accelerating expansion of the mosquito around the globe, driven by factors such as increasing global travel and trade and a warmer world that is more hospitable to mosquitos,” says Discovery’s press release.
“Mosquito” chronicles the increasing global threat of this tiny, dangerous creature, and the potentially deadly consequences humans face without a worldwide coordinated effort. The Discovery Impact film, “Mosquito” premieres on Thursday, July 6th at 9pm, on Discovery Channel and Discovery networks around the world.
