The Secret Catastrophe
Microbiologists and hygienists have been sounding the alarm for years - but so far no one has managed to halt the spread of hospital infections. Instead the danger is being played down; patients are left to cope on their own, while potential counter-measures are held back. This film tells the story of a medical catastrophe that's being kept under wraps.
