Killer in the Village
In over 1,000 men so far, collapse of the immune system has been followed by bizarre killer infections or rapidly spreading cancers; hundreds have already died. The underlying disease is AIDS - Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome-but some call it 'the Gay Plague '. The greatest toll has been among homosexual men who live in and around Greenwich Village in New York-but it is now spreading in other groups: Haitians, heroin addicts, haemophiliacs, even some women and babies. This medical detective story traces its spread across America, observes the search for a cause and cure, and asks: have the seeds of a spreading epidemic already reached London?
