During February, media across Europe and parts of Asia start to run stories about a resistant strain of flu which is affecting the young and old in North America. Common ‘seasonal influenza’ is the reported cause. By March the number of cases has skyrocketed across all age groups. On April 1st the WHO declares that North America is in the grip of a pandemic. While media outlets face government censure, media in Europe begin to run stories drawing comparisons between this new 'Super Flu' and the Spanish Flu of 1919 which killed over 40 million people. It is not uncommon to see visitors arriving from North America wearing face masks. Scenes of huge protests demanding improved healthcare start to filter out of the US. In San Francisco a man robs a bank with a squirt bottle full of what is claimed to be, super flu infected blood.
On May 1st the US Government working with FEMA and the CDC sets up a camp in the Nevada desert called ‘Camp St’ Teresa’ with the purpose of treating the uninsured sick. Immediately European media begin to associate these camps with concentration camps. The US Government issues St. Teresa Passports to Hospitals across the country who are inturn instructed to give the passports, which grant access to Camp Teresa, to uninsured patients in need. People all over the country rush to their local hospitals seeking passports. By June 1st all the passports have been issued. Reports of passports selling online for tens of thousands of dollars are not uncommon.
The first European cases of the Super Flu are reported on US military bases in England and Germany. Media outlets run the headline ********************************* and anti-American rallies begin, protesting against the military bases. During June, the number of people infected with the Super Flu across all Europe increases on a daily bases however due to European social healthcare systems, public confidence is high.
As deaths tolls begin to mount up throughout the US political relationships begin to deteriorate with Europe, the US begins to pull all of its military personal out of its European bases. Media stations show jeering crowds as the last planes depart from major US bases on the continent. The World Health Organistation officially names the super flu the ‘Campion Virus’ As the situation in North America dramatically worsens, the majority of Europe begin to close down it's national borders. The UK continues to keep its major international Airports open, to the anger of the EU.
Accounts surface from Camp Saint Teresa that describe atrocious living conditions. Rumors spread that Camp Saint Teresa is a massive death camp where poor infected citizens of the United States are sent to die. The White House tries to rebound from the accusation calling Camp Teresa a Quarantine Camp. Riots on an unprecedented scale breakout in major cities across the US. The Capital building catches fire. Martial Law is declared.
By August a slew of US Pharmaceutical Companies claiming to have a cure for the Campion virus begin selling their products direct to consumers and drug stores. The Pharmaceutical Companies skip the FDA approval to increase time to market and capitalize on the global panic. The most heavily promoted of these is *********. Riots break out in all major European cities as news breaks that the EU has been selling off its vast reserves of medicine and newly developed drugs to a desperate US government. France, the UK, Romania and Austria issue call up orders for all their military reservist units to try and quell the riots.
On September 8th 2007 a 911 call is placed from a mobile phone somewhere in Northern California. The person making the call claims that he is at a pharmaceutical testing facility where they are testing Campion Virus treatments. The caller claims that some of the patients have died and are attacking people. The 911 operator asks if the patients are dead or are attacking to which the caller responds, “both.” This is the first recorded case of ‘undead’ behaviour resulting from the Campion Virus.
As governments across the EU take control of all media companies, pictures begin to leak out on the internet of football stadiums across Europe being used as massive detention centers, each holding hundreds of thousands of infected familes. Contact between continents and other European nations begins to fail as riots begin to destroy key places of infrastructure. Martial Law is declared across most of Europe. Scenes of nerve agents being used on isolated towns and villages in Germany and the UK appear on the internet.
On November 1st the headline on New York’s leading newspaper reads “We Lost Some Zombies.” The quote is from a uniformed guard stationed at Camp Saint Teresa. The Article describes a frantic radio transmission made by the Camp Saint Teresa guard. The article goes on to describe armed soldiers racing away from the camp in Humvees towards Las Vegas. The city falls by the 3rd. The infected spread from there. The west coast is hit on the 5th and by the 7th no conact can be made with the east coast. Estimates are that 75% of the US population is dead or undead by the 19th of November.
