Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America

At the New York City hospital, people are practically rioting to get inside, where the situation is pretty fucking grim. One guy comes up to Vanessa and begs her to give some pain medicine to his mother. A co-worker walks up and says that the whole hospital is full, and that entire floors are being closed. Vanessa notices that the co-worker has a bag of supplies, and the co-worker says that her mother and son are sick, and it's her fault, so she's leaving. And she does. A guy in military garb walks in and calls out to Vanessa. It's her husband, Curtis! The whole National Guard has returned to the U.S. Curtis says that he had the flu, but recovered. He hugs Vanessa and tells her that everything's going to be fine. I find it hard to believe that Vanessa is allowed to be at work in the hospital without at least wearing a mask. Or maybe she's supposed to be, but realizes that it's kind of worthless. I'm still kind of wondering what happened to the baby whose dad shot himself.

Local Chinese Doctor writes an email to Joely, explaining that, in their neck of the woods, the virus has mutated again, and now the antivirals aren't working anymore. He says that America might think it's bad now, but that it's about to get worse. In the Chinese hospital, there are just dead bodies all over the place. Local Doctor walks outside and removes his mask, because the germs can't go through doorways. He watches from a balcony as some workers outside toss corpses onto giant bonfires. I guess they didn't cover that in medical school.

New York City. Vanessa and Curtis have just gotten reacquainted, if you know what I'm saying. Curtis says that the flu was bad, but that he's better now. I totally thought that meant he would die. Vanessa explains that he could get reinfected with a mutated strain, but Curtis doesn't want to hear it. He's got to go out and keep order and help out the cops. Vanessa leaves to get ready for work. Curtis flips on the TV and listens to all the bad news. The death toll is rising. Insurance companies are filing for bankruptcy. Curtis seriously asks Vanessa not to go into work, because it's too dangerous. Vanessa promises to be careful.

Richmond, Virginia. Week Six. Death Toll is at 2,512,432. Cleverly, the death toll no longer rises by ones -- now it goes up like twenty every second. Cops talk to the residents of a housing project, who are fenced in like animals. A television reporter says that citizens are outside Max's offices protesting the quarantines, because the quarantines aren't working out. Max turns off the TV in his bunker. Yeah, just turn the TV off and the problem disappears!
