Deadly Flu Leads to City Wide Quarantine

It has been a quiet summer in our fair City. Neither the corporations nor gangs have declared outright wars, crime and business going through their normal routines while the temperatures have warmed. Perhaps the heat has lead to a widespread feeling of goodwill to others, perhaps it has merely encouraged those with keener noses to stay away from the more dangerous areas. Rumours of a corporate buyout have spread but the citizenry seems content to wait and watch for the moment.

All that changed, dear readers, over the last few days. Earlier this month, AGIS discovered an odd outbreak among the homeless. While there is not much overt investment in keeping that specific population, they do serve a purpose from time to time. The excellent doctors within our Medical Center quickly identified and neutralized what appeared to be a robust form of influenza, a sickness that has long been considered nothing more annoying than the common cold. Vaccinations were had, all was well and no purging of the darker regions of our fair City was needed.

Sadly, that is not the end of the story. It seems that one unregistered slipped the net and found access to sweet, lovely Annie DeSade. Annie had merely gone out to share some food with friends, but came home feverish and unwell. She didn't last through the night. You might not know of Annie, dear Readers, but the DeSade name is widely known as a major handler of shipping, imports and exports, out of our very own Space Port. CEO William DeSade has demanded an immediate response from Gemini and the Joint Services Division, threatening to shut down his fleet until the carrier of this virus has been apprehended.

dear Readers, prepare yourselves. IPS AIDS have been reassigned from their standard patrols and placed under the authority of our very own Citizen Representative, Zion Volos. Representative Volos will be implementing a city wide Quarantine, placing check points through each sector to ensure proper vaccinations and citizenship. While it is always a good idea to have your identification cards on hand, it is now required to pass freely through our fair City. 

What does this mean, dear Readers? Rumours are flying that this is no simple flu. That someone is seeking to cause harm to our very selves. To bring down the Citizenry and spread chaos and fear through illness. We must stay calm and overcome, fair InSilicans! Keep away from those you do not know, cooperate with the AIDS and AGIS personnel. REPORT those who seem to be ill or malnourished! Get yourselves vaccinated at the earliest convenience, wear masks if you have them! Do not fight the AIDS, they are here to protect you from those who do you harm.

Persevere, dear Readers, and we will show that none can bring down our fair City.

Goodness, I do hope nobody is engineering viruses out there. That would be just dreadful.

Actually, an internal airlock door failed, deep in the underground, and some previously isolated experiments escaped.

I knew there would be a perfectly innocent explanation for it after all. Just some experiments gone wrong, eh? Fantastic! Piña coladas all round! :)

Just have to love unknown origins.

That sushi roll did look a bit dodgy.

I'm certain if you wear a mask you'll be fine...

And, of course, all properly registered citizens have nothing to worry about - just hop along for a vaccination.

Perhaps I can catch up on some other jabs while i'm in.

SW side note: dear Readers, please remember the proper procedures for the checkpoints! have your citizen identification card ready, show the AIDS your citizen identification card, once cleared...pass through the doorway the AIDS are standing next to. these unfortunate pedestrian jams will be resolved once everyone goes through the correct procedure! let's not have any more accidents from people attempting to jump the walls or skip their registration checks!
