I've gone to the city.

Please don't come for me.

There's a curfew here.

Just... just keep them safe.

I'm sorry.

I love you.

You are listening to NPR.

I'm host, David Newborn,

and this is Global Position.

Now for today's top headlines.

Months after the initial

worldwide outbreak,

national and local governments

are beginning to suppress

the necroambulis

virus epidemic.

The Department of Agriculture

has found no solution

for infected, dying crops.

Agriculture Officials

are encouraging farmers

to burn their crops

in a desperate attempt

to destroy what may

be preventing growth.

- Please return to your homes.

Curfew is at 8:

While citizens of

inner cities and metropolitan

areas remain hardest hit,

through quick response

and quarantine,

weekly infections reports

have dropped 30%.

Cleanup and martial

law are still in effect.

Medical officials,

along with the CDC,

have been tight-lipped

about a cure or vaccine.

As for the infected,

scientists are now suggesting

that an elevated sense of smell

is the telltale sign

of what's being referred to

as "the turn."

Check this one

for infection.

- Look at that skin.

- Yeah, we caught another, 10-4.

- Curfew-breaker.

See if infected, over.

Get her here.

Doctors with stage

hree patients are reminded

quarantine pickup

is at 1700 hours.

Sir? You shouldn't be in here.

This is the shelter for the

infected. It's dangerous.

But my daughter is here.

-What's her name?



Marguerite Vogel.

Marguerite Vogel...

Mr. Vogel?

Your daughter's bite wound

was very severe.

Now, we may know

a lot about this,

except that we

can't stop this yet.

She's probably going to show

more signs of aggression.

She's gonna lose

her appetite, and then she's

gonna get it back again.

Look at me.

When that happens,

take her to quarantine.

I wouldn't normally release

someone with her type infection.

I'm doing this

as a favor for Vern.

Quarantine is eight weeks in.

Say your goodbyes and

get her straight to Blaire.

I'll send all the necessary

paperwork to Vern.

He'll follow up and answer

any questions you have.

Good luck, Mr. Vogel.

Dad? Dad!

- I'm sorry.

- I've been searching everywhere

for you.

I'm sorry.

What did he say?

The doctor?

Vern helped us

get you out.

Stop picking at it!

-Where are you going?



-I'll be fine.



Maggie? Maggie?

Get in the truck!

-What's wrong?

-Just do it right now.

Come on. Go.

Mom! Daddy's home!

Slow down, honey! Oh!

-Did you pack your bag?


-Is Pretty Pony going?


You're not

taking Pretty Pony?

-Got everything you need?


- Molly!


We missed you.

-It's so good to see you.

-Hey. Hey, Moll.

What happened to your arm?

Oh, uh...

I just got hurt.

I scratched mine.

But Mommy fixed it.

-Who fixed yours?

-Uh, the doctors.

Is that where you were?

Yeah. It took

a while for them to fix it.

I missed you.

Dad said you were sick...

but you're dying, huh?


A few kids at my school

got infected.

I knew one of them. Steven.

I didn't like him much,

but... I don't think

he deserved to die.

Does it hurt?

No. Not anymore.

Why do we have to stay

with Aunt Linda?

Because I'm contagious.

Mom's afraid we'll get it.

Just because she loves you.

Hey. Go on,

and be nice to Molly.


-I missed you, kiddo.

-Missed you, too.

- Ready?

They tell us that

patients have days left

before what

they're considering

the final stage.

And stay tuned

at the top of the hour.

We'll be in conversation...

Why don't you get settled
