The role of U.S. airports in disease epidemics

“Public health crises of the past decade – such as the 2003 SARS outbreak, which spread to 37 countries and caused about 1,000 deaths, and the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic that killed about 300,000 people worldwide – have heightened awareness that new viruses or bacteria could spread quickly across the globe, aided by air travel.”
This visualization shows which hub airports are the prime carriers of diseases internationally.
Created by a bunch of researchers at MIT.

Bonus Video:
