There was an outbreak of the Virus in a meat plant.
There was also an outbreak in a Direct Provision Centre [a fancy name they give to a place housing homeless immigrants] where some of the inmates worked in the meat plant.
Gubmint response? Shut down three fucking counties.
Naturally there are no details about the victims. Are they all at death’s door? I doubt it. Did a small number report having the sniffles and the rest just tested positive when they rounded up contacts? I would consider that the most likely. And what symptoms did the primary victims display? I would wager a little more than just a normal flu bug at worst.
Lock down three whole counties anyway.
