"I am Evelyn Nguyen reporting for Channel 5 News here in Chinatown; in Veronicle City. Lately, as the world has seen, an epidemic has spread. It is a blood borne pathogen that seems to drive people mad. When infected, people first experience involuntary spasms and jerks, and the infection spreads rather quickly. From there they begin to lose higher thinking capabilities, as it seems they are reduced to basic, primal thoughts. The foremost among which seems to be killing or infecting the uninfected. There are reports that some people's immune system has actually held the virus at bay but studies have obviously not had enough time to be conducted as to why." The reporter is on a very risky story as she stands out in the streets of the city. The infection had spread all across the world and the police were beginning to lose their grip on the city. The state's national guard had been placed elsewhere and had probably been slaughtered; as contact had been lost. Society took so long to set up, but yet it crumbled so fast.
"Among the infected, there are also criminals out on the street, looting and murdering." The picture becomes shaky for a moment as the cameraman loses his grip. "Their appetite is ferocious among other symptoms that we may not have time to discuss, but they will eat anything in their path that they can get their hands on. We caught footage the other day of the infected attacking people on the streets, if we can cut to -," Evelyn was interrupted as the camera shook once again.
"Watch out Ev! Behind you!" A voice yells from behind the camera.
The camera topples over onto the rough ground as dozens of feet run past the lens towards their pray. The infected begin to trample it on their way over and as the feed fades the screams of the reporter and her cameraman are cut short.
