    • Fifteen years from now, a new virus sweeps the globe. 95% of those afflicted experience nothing worse than fever and headaches. 4% suffer acute meningitis, creating the largest medical crisis in history. And 1% find themselves 'locked in' - fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus.
      1% doesn't seem like a lot. But in the US that's 1.7 million people 'locked in' - including the President's wife and daughter.
