“Those diseases which medicines do not cure, iron cures; those which iron cannot cure, fire cures; and those which fire cannot cure, are to be reckoned wholly incurable.” —Hippocrates

At 0800 hours today, CDC received an emergency call from Dr Fritz Strickland, one of two full-time physicians at Hudson's Well Catholic Hospital in Hudson's Well, AZ. In less than 24 hours, eight patients have been admitted, with suspect symptoms, including two medical staff, and four of those have died. High fever is universal, and intense headaches are also reported, along with coughing, nausea, disorientation and hallucinations.

Dr Strickland has isolated the patients and is requesting immediate assistance.

All patients have proven resistant to antibiotics including Cafepime, Levequin and Vancimycin. Tylenol failed to reduce their fevers, and cooling blankets were only marginally effective.

The responders named below are to proceed immediately to Hudson's well Catholic Hospital, identify the illness, set a treatment plan, locate the source of the infection, evaluate the crisis, and advise on contagion and containment.

A small town. A mysterious disease. A secret beyond human understanding. This scenario is from DELTA GREEN: Control Group.
