Harrisonburg Virginia Placed Under Quarantine

Harrisonburg, VA – Beginning at 6:00 AM this morning the city of Harrisonburg, VA was placed under quarantine in an effort to stop the spread of the illness dubbed “the sweating fever.” A week after the first cases were reported the CDC announced that the mystery illness has reached epidemic levels in the city.

The illness has some similarity to hantavirus and the symptoms are close to that of the “English Sweats” a plague that ravaged the British Isles in the 16th century. The disease runs a course of chills, severe pains, and high fevers. The disease acts quickly, usually progressing in matter of two days. Sixty people have died so far in this outbreak. Anyone who may have had contact with Harrisonburg in the past two weeks who demonstrate these symptoms are urged to seek medical care as soon as possible.

The Government has set up medical aid stations in the city and are working to maintain order in the stricken city.
