Outbreak 2016

Its 1966, Germany, a virus has been released in a laboratory accident. Teams received a coded message from a scientist to help him contain his chemical spill and they set off to work out how to stop the spread. They can only stay outside for a short period of time and attempting to solve puzzles, reconstruct chemicals, cave rescues, targeted virus removal and circuit breaking before requiring decontamination is a real challenge. Once the spread of the virus is contained, teams must follow a trail to find the haz-mat suit that is strong enough to protect them from the initial spill and when a team member is fully protected (blindfold and gloves), they must enter the laboratory and place the broken tubes into a container to stop the virus from spreading. In the morning teams are taken to drop sites and must return to the laboratory, to check that the virus has been stopped.
