Pangaea* (Under revision!)

50.5 million years into the future, and Earth has reverted back to it's original state-the super continent of Pangaea. A new country is born, learning from past mistakes. A girl, riddled with sadness but an unknown power. A boy, with a silver spoon in his mouth and pockets full of money. This infant country is, however, surrounded by war and death, and both boy and girl are no exception. When a government plot threatens to overthrow everything they hold dear, Adelle and Marcus must search themselves to decide what's right.

12. Virus Information

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 **** Authors Note, this is about the virus. You won't understand the rest of this chapter unless you read this!  Now, the virus is a very deadly disease that has been creating severe epidemics for 38.7 million years. Since humanities immune systems rely on medicine so much, the immune system has lost many of the components needed to fight off viruses such as these. In short, over time we've grown to depend on medicine too much, and now cannot fight off certain illnesses as we could before. The virus is a prime example of this.

         The symptoms and effects include; Red, Rashy skin, Soft and yellow nails,  Loss of hair, Paleness, Sunken eyes, Rotten Teeth, Vomit (Green), Severe Stomach pain, Blindness, Deafness, Seizures, Brain Damage, Loss of Balance, Muscle Spasms, and eventually total loss of feeling and control in limbs. Also, patients may loose the ability to think properly, and eventually lead too insanity. Lovely, huh?

           The survival rate is only 2%, and most infected persons are dead within a week of contact. This is extremely contagious, and Carrier/infected people are to be quarantined.  There is no treatment options except to get what is called a "Delay Shot". As the name suggests, the shot will only slow down the virus. The speed of the virus is one of the key components, making it deadly. If you take this shot everyday for 3-4 weeks, you will receive about 6 months to a year left to live. No more, no less.  

        The virus works by attacking the cells in your body, but instead of destroying them, the virus works like a parasite by taking control over the cell itself, and using it to multiply copies of the virus. While still maintaining control, the virus commands the cell to attack the body, using the immune system against itself in a bloody internal battle. With no immune system to speak of, the body has lost it's defense, and submits. Organs begin to shut down after relentless attacks, and veins begin to cut off, leaving no circulation left in the limbs.

         The patient dies when the heart-the only organ left functioning-stops beating. All of this typically happens within a week, so very little time is left for treatment.  This deadly disease is working quickly, and moving across the country in giant sweeps, wiping out anyone in it's path. Hospitals are overcrowded  and the government and health department don't know what to do. This, my readers, is where Ade, Marcus, Arrow, and everyone else comes into play.

   (  Note, the reason Marcus has been able to survive for so long is because of the delay shots. In order to prolong his suffering, Arrow purposely snuck into Marcus's room at night and gave him injections-so his plot may be completeted before Marcus's inevitable death) 

    Alright, well, I'll publish the real chappy later today, just thought this would help a bit. Write ya soon, Bekah<#Minecraft123
