Radio announcer:
Immobilized to try

and stop people from fleeing the UK.

And now after four days of rioting.

There is a deathly silence over London

as the second wave

sweeps through the capital.

The violence, thought

to be provoked by the news

that the medical community

are powerless to find a cure...

Close the window.

...I have been asked to remind you

to stay in your homes

and avoid contact with anyone

who has contracted the infection.

But most importantly,

do not attempt to leave the UK.

The UK is now under quarantine,

and we must avoid spreading this infection.

In the capital, the air is thick with black smoke.

In London's parks, bodies continue to burn...

We're almost there.

[Helicopter propellers whirr]

Over walkie-talkie:

Most terrifying, over.

Listen to me, your dad's

waiting for us at the plane.

I'm going to drop you right next to it, ok?

It's ok. It's ok.


Get out of the car!

[Bangs on window]

We're clean,

we're going to meet my husband.

Please. Families should be together.

Get out of the oar.

You don't understand,

we haven't got much time.

Truth is, my husband's a pilot.

He's with his crew, and I'm putting

my little boy on that plane.

He's going to get out of here.

- The infection has to be contained.

I know we're supposed to stay at home,

but there's no hope for this place.

There's a chance for him,

can't you see that?


These are gloves.

It doesn't matter about me, check him, he's

clean, I haven't touched him, I swear!

Soldier 2:
Stop him!

- Run!



Don't move!


Various radio announcers: Military efforts

to contain the outbreak have failed.

There will be no evacuation.

Do not attempt to leave your home.

Do not attempt to leave the country.

This is a global pandemic.

Isolate yourself from all human contact.

Wear appropriate

personal protective equipment.

"Infection is highly contagious.

There is no...

- There is no known treatment.

Fever, nausea, systemic toxicity and

multiple organ failure are followed by death.

Avoid skin-to-skin contact

with all humans and animals.

The infected display inflammation

and darkened skin with rapidly extending...

if you develop symptoms, immediately

isolate yourself from all human contact.

There is no known treatment.

If you develop symptoms,

isolate yourself off quickly.

"Antibiotic resistant.

"Watch for symptoms.


do not attempt to self-medicate,.

"Inflammation and darkened skin with rapidly extending...

...This is anti-resistant.

Do not attempt to flee.

The infected display inflammation and darkened skin...

...There is no known cure.

Lesions in the skin enable

severe bacterial infection

which leads to sepsis as the immune system

reacts, and then septic shock.

Fever, nausea, systemic toxicity...

"Fever, nausea and multiple

organ failure,"...


, do not attempt to cover up symptoms.

Do not seek treatment.

There is no known cure.

There is no known treatment.

The infection is fatal.

- infection is fatal.

We repeat. There is no known...

- There is no known cure.

The infection is fatal.

- This infection is fatal.

[Phone rings]

Hey, you ok?

- I'm fine.


He's treating us like dogs.

Yeah, we need to see if it's spread.

What's he going to do if it has?

I've gotta get that.

Couldn't we just quarantine them?

And what if there's a cure in Greenland?

That was just a rumour.

They're desperate.

Tobias, the infection's on the plane.

- Tobias:

Nah, the kid.

- Isolate the child, move everyone away.
