World Wide Happenings

Recommended Posts

Similarities Around the World

The entire world reported many of the same things happening. Everyone was being hit by the equivalent of psychological warfare in groans, screams, and cries of the infected. Families and friends trying to care and support those afflicted were suffering and dealing with deep psychological damage due to watching loved ones be entirely non-responsive to them, and the endless state of pure rage of they were in. 

Sleep deprivation became another serious problem, millions were complaining of inability to sleep due to stress and noise, people were hallucinating, and becoming unsure of what was really going on around them.

While still affected, military and medical units around the world managed to somewhat stabilize the problem in their ranks by ensuring that the protocol of work limits and rest hours were being strictly enforced. By keeping themselves on a set schedule of hours worked and sleep, they were psychologically able to protect themselves far better than most of the populace.

Everyone at first was unsure of how to handle the aggression in those who were ill. Stories were spread of family members begging and pleading to their loved one to return to their senses, while they were being brutally murdered. Many did the same as their loved ones were killed in front of their eyes by law enforcement or other citizens who had taken up arms. It was well known some were using what was happening as an excuse to commit murder. The hospitals sedated as many people as possible, but it was too much to keep up with. 

 Stories were coming from rural areas where people had little access to hospitals or aid, that there were people being kept tied up, in makeshift cells, cages, and anything else that could hold them back. Some jails started tossing out low crime prisoners to use the cells for the violent infected. Many fires started due to bombings and carelessness, razing entire cities to burnt ashes. Some people would use the fires to their advantage, putting piles of the dead in the pathway to be taken by the consuming flames. 

Coastal cities and lakes suffered severely as dead infected piled up on the shore and began to decompose, polluting the water. Many coastal areas with fishing boats began rituals to try to keep the area unpolluted. In the morning, using protective gear they would locate, bag, and transport them to special containers on the ships. As they went to sea, a priest of the major religion of the area, would bless the bodies and the crews. Once in designated areas, fisherman would throw in chum until a school of sharks or other predatory fish would appear, then slowly give the bodies to the predators to consume. 

About three weeks into the outbreak, Japan shook the world as Yasushi Miyashita (Ph.D.) of RIKEN Center for Brain Science (CBS) made a worldwide public announcement, stating that testing done on some of ‘the infected’ with permission from their families, had yielded disturbing information. 

Multiple areas of the brain that involved identity of the self and decision making, had been irreversibly damaged by the virus. The damaged areas worked just enough to pass signals to other areas of the brain, allowing specific body functions to still work. There was severe damage to the area of the brain that regulates mood, along with extremely elevated activity in the area that regulated primal predatory responses. 

He issued sincere condolences to the world. The infected people were in a permanent-never-before-seen-hybrid of a coma and functioning state. All aspects that had made infected ‘human’ before, no longer functioned. Leaving them essentially as a violent human body, with no ability to make any kind of rational conscious decision. He lamented that there was no way for them to fix the damage done to the brain, but that they would not rest in finding something to aid people. 

The world was in a state of complete chaos. 

 

United Nations

WQ8KGda.jpg

The United Nations peacekeepers already being spread thin, meant that even with CERF aid, forces would not be able to effectively respond and aid all inflicted nations in a reasonable fashion. Forces that were already stationed in certain countries were ordered to remain there and aid the respective country they were occupying in securing and rescuing civilian populations. Resource supply plummeted due to many countries closing borders and travel becoming extremely limited, this led to a finite supply pool in which they would be able to distribute to forces globally. Restrictions such as this forced UN troops to consolidate their efforts and attempt to provide the most aid to the most people possible, which meant certain countries with poor infrastructure and comparatively smaller populations were not high priorities.

 

Europe

It’s been nearly a year since the viral outbreak known as AVir18 first hit the news. At first, it seemed as if the disease had been contained, and that only several countries outside of Chernarus were affected at all. In reality, many governments in Western Europe were initially very successful at hiding the extent of their outbreaks from the media. Within weeks the story began to change.

 

United Kingdom

RdHLIRr.jpg

The leaders of the United Kingdom felt that their relative isolation from the rest of Europe left them protected from the troubles of the mainland. Shortly after the news of this new infection aired in Chernarus and Belarus, the UK began enforcing strict travel restrictions and quarantine procedures. They closed the channel tunnel, stopped all ferries across the channel, grounded all incoming flights, and held all ships in quarantine for several days. This produced results almost immediately. Several infected people aboard airliners and ships began to display symptoms where they were promptly taken to isolation units. With the threat seemingly contained, the government was content to publicize how they had succeeded in eliminating the threat.

Overlooked was the several dozen people that had slipped through unnoticed before the quarantine began. Within a matter of days, several thousand had been infected throughout the Greater London area. The infected began to turn by the hundreds overwhelming the lightly armed police forces. After reviewing the situation Parliament decided to keep these developments quiet, authorizing the SAS and other elite units to begin eliminating the infected with lethal force. For a time, this proved successful as well, until the infection spread beyond London to most of southern England. With a drastic turn of events, martial law was declared and panic began to spread. Most people were unaware of how far the infection had spread and were concerned to see army units patrolling the streets so suddenly. Every day for weeks the infected clashed with the Army, slowly grinding them down. After a month it was clear that it was no longer practical to hold on to southern England.

The government organized a hasty exodus from the major population centers such as London. They left many to fend for themselves while establishing a strong infection-free cordon south of Sheffield. Military units created and manned numerous checkpoints and defensive fortifications bisecting the country facing south. Many people observed the fortifications to be akin to Hadrian’s Wall, albeit for an entirely different purpose. With Parliament and the Royal Family secure in Liverpool, life continued. Many hundreds of thousands were stranded south of the wall. North of the wall a sense of normalcy returned.

 

Ukraine

1jG9dY8.jpg

During November 2018 in the area of Donbass as the harsh winter was consuming the area, reports were pouring in from the front line trenches of gun firing and screams coming from the Separatists Trenches. Days went by as the Government was losing communication with different parts of the military from all over Donbass as more and more reports kept on coming in describing increase gun fights than ever before in the region. Helicopters were sent over the region to see what was happening...what they discovered was beyond anything they imagined. Streets were covered in blood, remains of humans but what also appeared to be people even biting, attacking and sometimes eating each other. Vehicles were on fire, buildings were also on fire or coming down from constant attacks. The Government was immediately sent video coverage from the helicopters of the situation and called for all Ukrainian Forces to head towards the Donbass Region. For the next few days, the Ukrainian Forces would try to keep the Infected back but would fail as the Infected would pour out of Donbass and reach other Regions in Ukraine. 

Within days, the capital of Kiev would fall to the Infected as riots and death would consume the area. Regions more towards the west of Ukraine would hear of the Downfall of Kiev. Some people would begin to gather rations and resources and get ready not only for a brutal winter but also the Infected. Some people would have different names for the Infected from Biters, Runners, Rogues and even going as far as Zombies but the more common name given was Formers. However for people who were not fully ready for the Infected were wiped out within days. By the end of December 2018 majority of Ukraine had fallen to the Infected...it got the point some people even during the Fall Of Kiev had moved into the area of Pripyat..and Chernobyl.

Different range of people were holding refuge in Pripyat from civilians, prisoners who had escaped prisons, Military and tourists who visited the country. Different groups were made and would get into conflict not only with the Infected but also other groups. Some of these groups had already turned cannibal due to the harsh weather and lack of food found in the area. 

As of 2019, communication was long lost from Ukraine, the majority of the government was either killed or fled from the country and estimate 80% of Ukraine population had turned into the Infected. Survivors in Ukraine and countries surrounding the country would usually enter Ukraine searching for supplies and weapons left from Ukraine, the separatist and Russian Forces. Pripyat and Chernobyl were still hot zones for hostile groups from cannibals to prisoners and even rogue soldiers from Ukraine and Russia.

 

North America

 

Canada

GEPT3SK.jpg

Portions of Canada’s frigid landscape further north have remained relatively quelled with military intervention. Canada’s government has established many policies into public affect in an attempt to keep its people relatively safe from the infection and each other. 

Such policies include marshal law for the general populace. Civilians are to remain indoors as much as possible to further prevent the spread of the harsh infection going around. Those who must leave the safety of their dwellings are required to return to some sort of secured building by sunset. Canada’s armed forces have responded to the infection in just by establishing garrisons in local hot-spots and near evacuation points outside of major cities such as Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary. 

These evacuation points include large military bases with reinforced perimeters and strict screening guidelines which include full body examinations as well as blood work to insure that they not have traces of injuries from infected or the infection itself. Soldiers are ordered to shoot any infected hostiles as well as bandits that attempt to instigate on any civilian population on sight.

Further south near the United States border, many American citizens during the initial outbreak fled towards Canada in an attempt to seek a more remote safe haven. This exodus has led to many altercations with Canadian soldiers as well as its citizens. Seeing the large influx also quickly led to the United States and Canada from closing their borders to one another preventing such actions from spiraling out of their control. 

Many major cities were lost due to the sudden onset interactions from the infected. This led many supplies and resources to be left behind as the people sought immediate safety elsewhere. Local police forces and military were able to evacuate a sizable portion of its populace into the countryside. Today most of the largely populated cities have become cesspools of infected and supplies alike, leading many to throw the dice in an attempt to gather as many resources as possible. 


 

United States of America

NzaQhmm.png

America's current state of affairs can mostly be attributed to its patriotic people and gun owning civilian population. Most of the the US’s major cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Houston, and Philadelphia quickly became uninhabitable due to the amount of tourism from foreign countries. Many foreigners come and visit and presumably that is how the infection originally found its way onto US soil. 

Similar to Canada, marshal law was quickly declared in an attempt to stave off riots and panic from the news that was quickly spreading from afar. Many fled their homes towards the more sparsely populated states and regions such as the countryside. The National Guard established many evacuation sites around to protect its people. Due to the large population however, certain portions of the region quickly were overrun and soldiers and civilians were forced to evacuate to more isolated locales.

Many smaller towns and cities were left mostly unscathed due to State Defense forces and their rapid deployment to where they were needed most. However, the largest problem in America came from the civilian population itself. Many armed civilians banded together and began fending for themselves. This led to small armed conflicts between civilians groups and in some cases even the State and National Guard. A large portion were worried about their own community's well being and less of others around, this led to distaste for outsiders leeching on their finite resources.

The US government and its Federal Emergency Management Agency suspended some rights due to about 34 states declaring a state of emergency. Many of these states required intervention from their State Defense and/or National Guard as well as medical aid with screening for large portions of its citizens.

Overall the United States maintained control in a majority of its region and in turn justified in sending aid to less fortunate countries via a UN task force. Many US troops that were stationed nearby other countries were either recalled or sent out to support nearby local and national government when available. 


 

Mexico

sHS4KNT.jpg

Due to Mexico’s geographic location, it is subject to a wide array of natural disasters ranging from over 90 earthquakes a year, to tsunamis, wildfires, floods, droughts, and landslides. Needless to say, Mexico’s government have prepared extensively to aid in such events. The National Civil Protection system (SINAPROC) was established to combat such national disasters. Although they did not account for the infection that would quickly spread through its highly condensed cities and localized populations. 

Mexico’s interactions with previous outbreaks such as swine flu in 2009 showed that the country was not well established enough to deal with such a drastic situation such as infection. Emergency response systems failed to be as robust as they needed to be and while they did send out TV and radio broadcast of what was going on most civilians were unable to do anything about it based on location.

Despite numerous accounts of hostilities and controversies involving Mexico’s drug cartels, a few seemingly banded together further establishing the narco-feudalist state that was previously argued. They claimed patches of land and territory and were well armed to protect it from scavengers and the infected alike. Many relocated into the vast countryside the country has to offer and began reinforcing/establishing small towns far away from the many afflicted major cities such as Mexico City, Culiacan, Guadalajara, Juárez, and Tijuana. 

Meanwhile the government attempted to quell infection outbreaks near the United States due to drastic increases in traffic attempting to cross the borders. Such actions threw the infection count into overdrive and its spread rapidly increased. The Mexican government so far deems most major cities as well as the bordering regions near the US as uninhabitable and recommend that all human traffic deviate from any path or proximity to such areas. 

The military had difficulty in navigating large cities and certain terrain have led to slow reaction time and supply acquisitions. Most orders entail aiding civilians outside of major cities to limit casualties and loss of serviceable equipment. In doing such they have aided many small towns by gathering the healthy populace and relocating them to secure locations.

 

South America

 

Peru/Chile

Fp0gusS.jpg

ERG2eXN.jpg

Due to many natural disasters that plague the region like the Puyehue volcano in Chile and the Ubinas volcano in Peru, these countries are well versed in mass evacuation of their people to safety. Similarly, dealing with many earthquakes, both have proven that their national awareness systems designed to relay information, operate reliably and efficiently. They were able to quickly send out notifications via the airwaves to inform their people to seek their local police or military that was being dispatched to evacuate the civilian populace. 

Peru’s vast tourism led to a swift infection rate increase due to having tourist from all over the globe visit locations such as Machu Picchu, Lima, Cusco, and the Amazon. It is believed that Peru was one of the first South American countries to contract the infection. When they first realized that similar symptoms from the newly discovered virus in Europe were showing in country, they quickly shut down incoming and outgoing travel. Airports were shut down and borders were sealed. Many tourists were found trapped in the country which led to conflicts near the borders with people attempting to flee into neighboring countries such as Chile, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Peru’s government declared a state of emergency after the larger cities of Lima and Arequipa began to get overrun by infected. The military took haste and attempted to quell such situations but quickly realized that even some of their own men have become infected which shattered their defensive lines in the planning phase. They had no choice but to withdraw and attempt to protect political officials and civilian’s in more remote locations while initiating evacuation orders. 

Chile’s largest city of Santiago quickly became uninhabitable due to the sheer density of infection. With a staggering population of nearly five million individuals, compared to the rest of the cities in the country with the next largest being Puente Alto with a population of just over half a million. It came as no surprise how quickly and violently Santiago was brought to a crumble. With the majority of Chile’s military bases located within 100 km of Santiago, the troops were able to quickly respond but were met with droves of infected when they arrived on scene. Similar to Peru, Chile closed its borders in an effort to restrict travel into its less populated regions, however they further attempted to quarantine the main routes outside of Santiago to limit the amount of infected individuals who were attempting to relocate to less inhabited cities. Roadblocks and checkpoints were set up and in the weeks to come it seemed to have delayed the further spread. For the time being those near the southern portion of the country seem to be faring better due to the multitude of islands that could be protected with relative ease.

 

Venezuela

p4wflR8.png

In Venezuela, as pattern follows, many of the larger cities such as Caracas, Maracaibo, Valencia, and Barquisimeto were the locales that showed evidence of the infection first. While the government originally thought it was possibly a strain of the swine flu virus that previously plagued Mexico, they quickly learned that it was in fact the same virus that has been reported in Europe and parts of Asia. 

However, in the larger cities where the symptoms were first discovered, there was not sufficient time or warning for many individuals. The virus began to quickly spread due to poor infrastructure and drastically condensed civilians. This resulted in infected masses in said cities and led the government to declare a state of emergency and seek aid from the UN. Several weeks into the crisis, some camps in more remote locales began to fall to roving parties of bandits. Rumors state that it is most likely related to the Cartel of the Suns imposing their force on the lesser able populace in order to gather as many resources and territory as possibly. The allegations state that the reason they are able to control a vast amount of territory with weaponry and equipment is due to some high ranking military officers leading the cartel in the drug trade.

 The infected have mostly stayed in the larger cities due to the poor infrastructure and dense forest. Borders have been shut by both Venezuelan troops and foreign troops trying to avoid the further spread of stragglers possibly carrying the infection. The infected number is now estimated in the several millions and many cities have been deemed complete losses.

The government recommends that its people seek shelter either in the deep forest where able or to seek aid from their military in designated locations. Their orders were to stay in hiding and await further instructions while protecting the civilians who arrived and were uninfected. 

 

Argentina

CRzAqrg.jpg

Being sandwiched between the Andes mountain range and the Atlantic ocean allowed Argentina to remain relatively calm at first from the infection. The Argentinean government immediately closed its borders and ports as soon as they caught wind that Chile had outbreaks of this newly discovered virus and with it the extremely hostile infected.

In the next few weeks there were rumors that the infection began sprouting out in multiple cities across the country but the government had been keeping any sort of news on the subject matter under censorship. Many civilians began believing that their military had been visiting these rumored towns and eliminating any and all traces of the infected threat to stop its spread dead in its tracks. The truth never came to light but after the first month, some rumors proved to be fact when some of the larger cities began falling to the virus. 

Buenos Aires, Cordoba, and Rosario were the largest offenders and quickest to fall. After each city had received its first confirmed case, it is estimated that there were already hundreds upon thousands infected. This resulted in a near complete loss of infrastructure and governmental organization  Some areas remained isolated and the military defended others well enough that the infection rate plateaued. Many civilians who gathered around designated military evacuation outpost stayed and over time they flourished into small communities of survivors that began fending for themselves.

 

Brazil

4jrIRc9.png

Plagued with its already existing poverty and various favelas/slums, Brazil was already in quite a precarious situation without throwing the infection into the mix. It's severe economic underdevelopment and substantially low standards of living as well as medical care, meant that as soon as the outbreak began there was going to be little order and control over the situation. 

Nearly 20% of its population lives in impoverished conditions and threw the already unfortunate population into an unrecoverable scenario. Many of the favelas and slums were beyond public aid and military intervention. As with crime and many civil problems, the civilian populace would be left on their own with little, if any, military/police protection. Hospitals became stagnant when they quickly became overcapacity and medical aid was extremely limited, leading to substantially more infected individuals to further spread the disease. 

The already absurdly high crime rates skyrocketed when people learned that these crimes were no longer solely because of gang or drug violence, but instead for the survival of those more fortunate and with more supplies. Those that forcibly lived in shanty towns such as Brazil’s largest Rocinha, where basic sanitation, electricity, water, and sewage services were unavailable had it the worst. They had no chance to remain yet had no resources to leave. Many who stayed got caught up in the infection as it took the country by storm. Those who left risked dealing with roving gangs of bandits and an inflation in violent crimes. 

Their military took point and aided in establishing evacuees's camps where they would provide what aid they could in forms of medical assistance, food, shelter, and armed protection. They screened civilians thoroughly for signs of infection to keep the virus from spreading into their facilities. This combined with the remote nature and location of these bases meant that they were able to keep some modicum of civilization alive.

 

Asia

 

China

1CZq9Qr.png

Shanghai, Beijing, Chongqing, and Guangzhou were the first to fall to the infection. Shenzhen and Tianjin followed quickly after. The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) lost control of major cities and evacuated citizens to quarantine zones in more rural areas while they tried to deal with the hordes. 

As streets and city roads went to a full standstill filled with abandoned cars, military and rescue units were stranded and unable to reach many people calling for aid, resulting in an unknown amount of deaths. 

President Xi Jinping called upon military Generals Zhang Youxia, Xu Qiliang, and Wei Fenghe for a major project. Secret to the public, Jinping ordered them to send elite troops to Dìxià Chéng in Beijing, and Sanmenxia in the Henan province. Also going were CBRN units along with large groups of chosen workers of various professions including plumbing and electricity. 

Both were immense underground structures filled with tunnels and homes. Dìxià Chéng had been built during the Cold War underneath the city of Shanghai and had been made to comfortably hold the entire population of Shanghai. This included survival measures such as protecting the air inside, and even had stores and movie theaters. 

There was a theory as well, that Dìxià Chéng was not the only major subterranean area. People who had managed to see it before it was closed off to the public entirely in 1995, claimed there were roads and tunnels inside that linked the area to all major landmarks and cities in China. No one had any idea how big the area actually was. Only that it could fit millions of people, and potentially far more than just the population of Shanghai if the tunnels truly existed and connected to other underground areas. 

The military was to clear the major subterranean areas of any people and infected. Once cleared the workers would be rushed inside and to the best of their ability, make the areas as safe as possible within a month.  It took two months for the military to clear out the underground areas and hold a large enough portion of Beijing for workers to enter safely. 

During those months the military had also stabilized a similar area that had been made in the 1960's, code named “131” or Dìxià gōngchéng. Started as a military safe house, it was meant to protect top commanders including the president, including giving them living areas and places to work, though the project was terminated in 1971. Crews had gone and in and sealed off unfinished areas and reestablished power, decontaminated, and gotten the area prepared. The president and top officials had moved in the second month into the infection.

Many original quarantine zones failed, and large riots resulted in millions of people dead as they were descended upon by infected drawn to the noise. PLA was able to make short work of some areas by use of more recent weaponry from Russia, though it tended to draw even larger hordes from distant areas. The military began experimenting with bombs, noises, and lights to try to herd the massive hoards away from the populace where they could be bombed or shot at. 

The first winter took an unknown number of lives, likely thousands if not many more. People were overwhelmed and confused, trying to find places to stay warm, food to eat, and avoid the infected. Shelters held protection, but many people outside of them froze to death in the cold. The only good thing the winter brought was that the cold killed thousands of infected. When the area began to warm up, first responders became careless in handling the bodies, and ended up setting off another wave of the virus. 

As soon as the spring began, quarantined survivor camps were forced to grow as many crops of rice, wheat, grapes, tomatoes, brinjal, spinach, and watermelon possible. Everything that possibly could be stored for later use was.  

In March 2019, President Jinping began having as many survivors as possible, who had stayed healthy within quarantine zones, moved to the locations of Dìxià Chéng and Sanmenxia. 

Currently the government and military are in communication with other major nations of the world. While the majority of the people live securely in the underground, ground forces and air forces continue working to kill and clear the infected that wander across the area.

China still is communicating and working in part with the United Nations Security Council. Thousands have been sent out as peacekeepers and soldiers across the country to attempt to aid survivors, including into India, Japan, Thailand, The Middle East, Vietnam, and other surrounding areas. Air support and aid supplies have also been sent to the Philippines and Indonesia.

The estimate of those dead or turned to infected is at the very least, half of the entire population of China. Survivors are believed to be around 675 million.

 

India

9UqLFPT.png

President Ram Nath Kovind worked hard in the initial stages to keep all communications open to the public. This ensured less panic in some areas, while as around the world, the largest and most populated cities fell first. Even with millions falling to the infection, the police and military were able to do an exceptional job in keeping the country as stable as possible. 

The National Disaster Response Force was deployed a few weeks in and combined with various other forces such as the Indian Army, Assam Rifles, Civil Defense, Central Reserve Police Force, State Armed Police Force, and Home Guard Forces to create thousands of well built and well protected safe zones. 

As other countries were figuring out, India used its historic areas to its advantage. After realizing early on that many infected would chase after loud noises, The Army Aviation Corps began using its helicopters to distract and herd hordes of infected away from populated areas. Attack wings would then fly in and decimate the groups via air support. 

The Corps leads the majority of hordes into the deserts, where the infected bodies have been noticed to quickly advance in stages of decay, if they are not taken out by artillery first. 

Assam Rifles were split into smaller groups. Some were sent to the borders to secure the areas as backup to the various Border Security Forces. The rest were spread across the country to help manage and distribute provisions of aid, protect, secure, educate, and provide medical assistance to people in survivor zones. 

The Indian Army being one of the largest in the world, is also well known for difficult operations over long period of time, including holding formations. 

They have worked with the combined forces to secure multiple areas as some of the largest safe zones. Bidar Fort, Chittaurgarh Fort, Daulatabad Fort, Jaisalmer Fort, Kumbhalgarh Fort, Mehrangarh Fort,  Murud Janjira, and Sindhudurg Fort, have all been occupied and held by the combined ground forces to serve as massive civilian safe zones. With strict rules and regulations to keep people as healthy as possible, the forts have been a saving grace for civilians against infected and bandits. While every single one has been attacked, every single fort has held its name as being unconquered.

The Navy quickly began working to refit local large ships as floating hospitals, and many cruise liners have taken on refugees. All passengers are given strict health exams before being allowed on board. These ships usually stay within close range of each other and make a large fleet, usually in the Bay of Bengal or the Arabian Sea. Ground forces worked to clear the Maldives Islands, which is also been being used for refugees. 

Special forces have been split up to both protect the country and be sent to other countries via the UN to help secure and protect civilian areas. Aid has been sent as well by the Navy via ships and soldiers, going to areas such as Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Indonesia. 

The estimate of those dead or infected is the same as China, half the population at its lowest numbers. Survivors are believed to be around 675 million.

Iran

V8wmvWw.png

As the infection broke out, ISIS decided to use the opportunity to try to push the borders into Iran, they were met with the Iranian Army (IRGC) who were sandwiched between ISIS and the infected. Air support was quickly put in motion to try to push both forces away from the military units. 

The nuclear power plant at Bushire successfully shut itself down, preventing a nuclear meltdown and a major panic from the public. IRGC worked on creating safe zones for civilians, many set bombs to distract infected towards desert locations where they would quickly die from exposure. 

One-night in mid-December, massive bombings were reported at the borders of Iran, Syria, and Turkey. The other side of the country reported the same along the Afghanistan and Pakistani borders, as well as in large cities of Iran itself. Not long after, radio communications started talking about hundreds of thousands of dead in the streets, then trouble breathing. Within an hour all radio communications had ceased from the areas of the bombing. 

UN aid forces quickly approached the area, using CBRN protection and expecting from the countries past, to interact with a chemical attack. They recorded video and took photos as they searched, finding hundreds of thousands of dead in the streets, people of all ages, sick and healthy. All showed obvious signs of being exposed to a nerve agent, highly suspected to be sarin, or combinations of sarin, chlorine and possibly mustard gasses.   

When confronted, the Iranian government denied all accusations, claiming the attack being from ISIS. With the previous history of the Civil War, no one believed the claims. Samples were sent for testing, which eventually came back the same as during the Civil War; sarin manufactured and stored by the Iranian military. 

UN began evacuating civilians into Turkey, China, South Arabia, and India. While being concerned about resources to move large groups, they were far more concerned about the fact that the president had seemingly without hesitation or consequence, killed millions of his own people, both sick and healthy. Other survivors scattered into rural and abandoned areas of the country, trying to stay away from any large cities. Military forces did have save zones as well, people were also evacuated to them, and the UN added foreign soldiers to keep an eye on the troops there. 

32 million dead or turned was the most recent estimate of Iran, with 49 million survivors being in both Iran or evacuated to other areas. 

Japan

KOzDfEA.png

Major cities succumbed to the virus the fastest, the top being Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, and Sapparo. Tokyo alone estimated 33 out of 38 million people turned or died within the first few months. 

The sudden high rate of people around the world with the flu, including a from Japanese hospitals, prompted the government into a cautionary state within the first week of November. The week after, following reports of physical attacks from infected citizens; Emperor Naruhito issued an order for all towns to go under protective sequestration. 

Combined Japanese, American, and other assigned foreign troops were pulled to the quarantined towns to aid in supervising people, helping the sick to medical centers, and distribution of food and supplies. Even with the enforcement, too many had become infected too quickly, and the cities were becoming overrun. 

Emperor Naruhito fell ill with the virus, eventually being shot and killed when he repeatedly attacked special forces guarding him. Prime Minister Shinzō Abe, and Deputy Prime Minister Tarō Asō were evacuated to secure locations.

The government quickly realized most cities were a lost cause and told everyone to evacuate into the countryside within 48 hours. Thousands of enforcement zones were being made by the combined military and police, including many in the more secluded areas of the multiple national parks. When the 48 hours were up, massive airstrikes were called in for an attempt to obliterate the millions of infected. The airstrikes would continue for months, trying to get the infected hordes under control. Napalm was dropped after bombing runs had finished, hoping to burn the corpses.

Military carefully used natural locations to the advantage of the people, such as the Narusawa Ice Cave, the Fugaku Wind Cave, the Lake Sai Bat Cave, and Shiretoko and Daisetsuzan National Parks. People were quickly moved to the various quarantine zones, and even stricter protocol was enforced. No one could leave once they had gotten there, and various testing and wellness checks were mandatory. The military rapidly eradicated any attempts of pillaging in the areas and of the populace there. 

Naval units were sent in to clear the infected out the surrounding islands of Bonin, Ryukyu, and Habomai by any means necessary, then set up guard, allowing no one in or out of the islands until told otherwise. CBRN troops were brought in to sanitize the island areas. Air Force was flying supplies to the islands and quarantine zones, including assisting in evacuations and attempting to get fires under control. 

The military continued battling the hordes and keeping quarantine in place. Solid communication between the government and military to the people kept communities from panicking. 

Three months into the outbreak, people who had shown no signs of illness of any kind for a month, began to be transported to Bonin, Ryukyu, and Habomai by the Navy. 

Five months into the outbreak, Prime Minister Shinzō Abe contracted the virus and died. Tarō Asō was instated as the new Prime Minister. 

Nearly a year after, Japan is one of the only regions with functioning power. They have slowly been clearing the cities, and as they continue to take the land back from the infected, and keep the sickness at bay, some areas are beginning to function again. 

Japan is using its energy to give aid to the rest of the world via the UN. Canning food, making and packaging vital products and medicines. It continues to create and export mass quantities of chlorine to be used to clean water around the world, especially in areas such as Indonesia and the Philippines. Fisherman have also kicked into high gear, going into deeper ocean past contaminated waters to bring back fish, crabs, clams, shrimp, prawns, and seaweed to be canned, smoked, stored, and distributed throughout the world. 

The World Health Organization estimates the amount of people infected or dead at around 50 million, believing survivors to be around 76 million.

 

Kazakhstan

After being hit hard by the spread of the virus and the military coordinating safety efforts, the freezing winter helped to wipe out a good portion of hordes. As in other countries, carelessness in body disposal as the area thawed resulted in a relapse of the virus spreading. Native carnivorous wildlife ended up being a major asset, as while infected typically would go after any animal, they were no matches for Eurasian brown bears, foxes, jungle cats, lynxes, snow leopards, and wolves whom had no issues hunting infected, nor did they appear to suffer any ill effects from eating them. 

UN asked for support in providing wheat, barley, cotton, rice, potatoes, melons, and livestock, including various fuel and oils. They also began to harness power from various green resources including helping to begin building very small and portable hydroelectric tools and generators that could be operated in streams and rivers to be sent around the world.

Reports were coming in from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan, of major terrorist attacks of unknown origins. People were found massacred in various areas as well as resources having vanished overnight, including artillery, food, and other goods. No one claimed responsibility for the attacks, leading to speculation it was bandits or other survivors. Russia asked to open large-scale transportation routes to transport special ops troops into the areas to aid in protecting innocents from infected and robbers. Kazakhstan agreed, as well as allowing Russian troops were to be stationed in Kazakhstan to protect the large oil reserves.

11 million survivors with added foreign aid are currently holding their ground against an estimated 7 million dead or infected.

 

Mongolia

With a far smaller population than most areas, Mongolia wasn’t hit anywhere near as hard by the infection by its surrounding countries. While borders had been closed and transportation stopped, there was also scientific speculation that the fierce cold throughout most of the country kept the virus from spreading. The cold mountains and the blistering deserts made short work of infected, quickly killing any who wandered into them. 

Seven thermal power plants across the country help to aid the country in electricity and major transport of resources still takes place via the Trans-Siberian Railway. While electric vehicles are in use, nomadic farmers and others who tend to be more alone have adapted more to traveling by horse. While not as fast nor having unlimited stamina as vehicles, horses make far less noise, allowing safer travel around areas with hordes. Like everywhere else the military has put up safe zones and enforce heavy protection of them. Mongolia is believed to have around 1.9 million survivors, with 1.2 million having died or are infected.


 

North Korea

Due to extreme oppression and control of media, most citizens of North Korea simply assumed another outbreak of Avian Flu was happening. Once the physical attacks began, the country started sliding into chaos. As citizens activities are largely regulated by the government, the virus spreading through areas has made everyone’s usual routines null, confusing citizens. As the illness got worse, hundreds if not thousands used the confusion to their advantage by running into South Korea to be reunited with family and loved ones. 

Reports stated that reeducation centers and labor camps across the country had been fully overrun by infected, likely due to people’s immune systems being compromised by the severe living conditions. Only a few guards make it back to areas where they would report what had happened. 

The government began to panic and attempted to barricade themselves in military installations defended by the Korean Peoples Army. Troops not protecting government officials were sent out to aid civilians and kill infected. Air support from the Air Force was a key factor in trying to quell some hordes. 

Luckily for civilians, nearly all men and a large portion of woman had served in the military and had extensive training with firearms and working in units. Civilians managed to work together easily to hold areas and evacuate as many as possible from the cities, relocating to areas along the country, beaches, and in the mountains, where the military was able to find and meet with them.

All known information has come from residents fleeing into South Korea and via Air Force reconnaissance. While power and communication appear to be working in some areas, orders seem to be to isolate from everyone around the country. Any attempts to approach the border into the country have been treated with lethal force.

Estimates are 15 million survivors spread between North Korea, South Korea, and Japan. Dead or infected are estimated at around 10 million. 

 

 Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia went into emergency levels of public panic as the infection began to spread. The ulema had no idea how to deal with the spread of the infection, except for basic quarantine. Areas that attracted mass amounts of people spread the virus faster than it could be contained, especially in Jeddah and Mecca. 

 

At Al-Yamama Palace in Riyadh, King Salman Al Saud attempted to calm the public. Resulting in a massive riot, the noise luring hundreds of thousands of infected towards the crowds. People panicked and tried to flee, only resulting in more becoming trapped as areas were blocked by fleeing citizens. The infected swarmed the city and overran both the crowds and the government building. The government was assumed dead, and the city a lost cause.

This resulted in the military pulling a coup d'état to gain control of the public and secure their safety. The military immediately began creating quarantined safe zones and began directing people to their locations. Air Force and Ground Forces combined to distract massive hordes and using a large amount of modern artillery, managed to take out a large portion of the hordes.

Technology and artillery managed to aid them in protecting their safe zones as well. The desert proved to be especially useful as hordes wandered into the desert, quickly dehydrated, were burned from the heat, and died. 

The military was approached by the UN regarding massive exports from the country; fuel, agriculture, and clean water. Oil and fuel products were a desperately needed resource, and Saudi Arabia was one of the highest producers of it. 

Self-sufficient in food production for its own population, which had been severely depleted, the UN asked for help for other countries in need. Fresh bananas, barley, citrus fruits, dairy products, dates, eggs, fish, fruits, grapes, guavas, mangoes, meat, milk, millet, olive oil, olives, onions, pineapple, poultry, sorghum, squash, tomatoes, vegetables, watermelon and wheat began to be collected in mass and packaged to be shipped out to countries in need. Tons of food products such as milk, meat, cheese, fruit, eggs, and grains were sent to be dehydrated into powders and canned to be sent in aid packages. 

The main other resource of vital importance to certain countries was clean, drinkable water. Saudi Arabia had major plants to desalinate seawater, and while owned by private companies, they were put into use for emergency. This also aided in production of salt, a critical nutrient for the human body. 

The country is slowly stabilizing and becoming a major resource for other countries with help from the UN. 20 million people are estimated to be surviving, while losses are estimated around 13 million. 

 

 

South Asia: Indonesia, The Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, & Vietnam

With a highly dense population spread across large mass of islands, the largest were nearly overrun by infected.  

High amounts of tourism and religious sites helped to spread the infection as people traveled or went in large numbers to worship in various temples or churches. As the infection struck during the wet season, reports came of infected physically deteriorating rapidly. If the infected were stuck in the water for long enough periods, the skin would bloat, become necrotic, and slide away, the infected dying soon after. 

Water sources in densely populated areas quickly became poisoned. Infected could not swim and if pulled into a current or wandering into high waters they would quickly drown. People pulled from floodwaters with decaying corpses in the water nearby would become ill within a few weeks and suffer the same fate. 

People began refusing to rescue anyone trapped in water with infected corpses, deeming them a lost cause. Instead of leaving them alone to suffer, some would use a long-ranged weapon to give them a coup de grâce

Survival camps reported that boiling water to bathe or drink, did nothing to slow the illness. The first positive reports came from first aid workers, who began reporting lower amounts of illness in areas using small bleach solutions to purify their water. 

The various militaries tried to clear small islands and worked to get citizens to safety by fleeing in boats. While the mainland areas were overrun with infected, most survivors relocated to the several thousand tiny islands. 

When people on the islands first began to see the Indian Navy, they were afraid they were ghost ships filled with more infected. Once they realized the people onboard were very much alive, healthy, and had brought supplies, they rejoiced. Naval units worked to organize the islands, setting up specific islands for quarantine and others for healthy survivors. Air support was flown in and began bombing the large cities and islands. 

More hope came when air support from China appeared, dropping precious cargo of clean water among other supplies. The biggest concern became how to clean the water supply in areas that had become contaminated. China send hundreds of water samples back to the UN and WHO for testing to begin. 

 The one good thing for Indonesia was due to numerous hydro-power dams it managed to keep power and irrigation to important areas for crops. People with knowledge to upkeep the dams were quickly stationed at them for maintenance, as well as farmers. Due to this, the nation was able to produce and distribute food, keeping its people from starving. Fishing boats would go into the deeper ocean, escaping the polluted waters, to bring back fish to distribute.

The government and UN worked together to use the energy to continue producing products of importance such as medication, canned and bottled foods, batteries, etc. 

In Indonesia it is believed survivors outnumber infected at 1.6 million to 1.1 million. 

In the Philippines estimates believe 63 million survivors are against 42 million dead or infected.

Papua New Guinea is believed to have an equal estimate of about 4 million survivors and infected each.

Thailand estimates 41 million survivors versus 27 million dead or infected.

Vietnam survivors estimated at 57 million, infected or dead around 38 million. 

 

South Korea

South Korea also prepared for what they believed to be Avian Flu. As word spread around the world of the spread of the disease quarantines were put into place, but by then it was too late for larger cities such as Seoul, Busan, Icheon, and Daegu.

Citizens fled into less populated areas, and when several North Korean military units became ill guarding the border, a massive mob used the chance to defect into South Korea, potentially bringing thousands if not a million or more people into the country over a period of about a week, until North Korea managed to get control of its border again.

The influx of people was chaotic, police and military had to create areas specifically for not only their own citizens, but now places to care for, identify, and aid the defectors in finding their families. As they worked to attempt to reunite families, house, feed, and protect their people, they were overjoyed at reinforcements appearing from both China and Japan. 

The islands of Ulleung-Do and Jedu were cleared out by combined Naval Forces and survivors were evacuated to the larger and smaller islands surrounding the country, along with military and police to protect them. Aerial bombings took place, and began to help ground forces start pushing back infected hordes. Military units work to try to retake their country while civilians either aid however they can, or survive with each other on islands. 

While nuclear power plants originally shut down, a few have been able to be reopened to provide power to the country, and are under constant protection, including having extra workers on standby. Estimates are 30 million South Korean citizens, with an unknown amount of North Korean citizens. Dead or infected estimate around 20 million.

 

Antarctica

Frigid temperatures and desolate landscapes made sure that the few scientists that inhabited the continent were safe from the outbreak. There would be no feasible way that the virus could make its way over and survive in these conditions. They had no choice but to listen and watch radio/news broadcast about the rest of the world falling into a state of near disrepair as they were left to their own devices.

France

1200px-Flag_of_France.svg_1_75.png.c312d35839fc666d66defc04ffcd0d8a.png

The rumors of the infection in the eastern regions Europe and western parts of Russia sparked controversy. Breaking news of "zombies" walking the streets seen as close as Italy and Ukraine. This rumor quickly became a reality.
The first outbreak started in Paris on Eiffel Tower itself with the first attack on a primary school field trip when two men who allegedly were reported as being "mildly ill" suddenly turned violent and charged the group, tearing into the flesh of the children and the teachers leading them.

More and more similar instances ruptured throughout the country starting in Paris and other high-density areas such as Marseille and Rouen. These erupted violent riots throughout most major cities, even those not of high civilian density, which eventually gained a full-scale government response. Martial law was declared all across France with numerous quarantine sites deployed. Military forces were deployed and checkpoints erected near the borders as French Special Forces such as GIGN and FORFUSCO (French Navy) attempted to regain control of Paris. The police forces were no match for the infected and riots combined and were the first targets by rioters.

Due to the lack of acknowledgement by the government, they were caught by surprise. Hesitant, they quickly contacted all NATO allies and the UN but were shocked to know that many other countries were affected, some worse than others. The UN were already responding to countries like the US and Canada, only able to spare a small aid team with minimal supplies.
France was soon placed under immediate quarantine and all means of travel in or out of the country were closed. Airways were heavily restricted to military forces only, if planes attempted to come in or out were shot down without warning. The western and eastern shorelines were watched 24/7 by the FORFUSCO and borders were held off by regular French military forces.

Nearly a full week since the first outbreak, no matter how much pressure or resources were spared to retake Paris and control the infection, it was considered lost along with Marseille, Bordeaux, and Grenoble. These cities were considered Hot Zones and anyone that remained within a 1km radius of designated hot zones were to be killed on sight.
 As the infection and riots slowed down, those found that were deemed VIP's; ministers, judges, police chiefs, were given a personal escort by remaining GIGN to the harbors for a quick escort from the country to an undisclosed location until everything died down. Everyone else claimed "not of importance" were left in the city, instead tending to the nuclear power plants to sustain power but once those were lost, they resorted to farmlands and forced to live without electricity

The total estimated population of France before the outbreak was 66.5 million. Due to lack of an immediate response, the population quickly dwindled down.
Roughly 15 million dead. 22 million infected. 1 million unaccounted for. Only 28 million remained unaffected.

 

Italy

Flag-Italy.jpg.bf361a4c9c6089f5d8d537ce2675bf05.jpg

Due to the location of Italy being much closer and in direct line for the infection to reach it, Italy was hit rather quickly. This left a small window for any form of reaction to combat the infection. Italy as a whole, government and civilians, were informed of this outbreak as it spread through Bulgeria, down to Greece, and then found it's way to southern Italy; specifically the coastal city of Bari. The first signs were symptoms became apparent as it quickly spread further south to Catania, local clinics and hospitals all reporting the same symptoms which sparked a quick response.

First responders were the Carabinieri and the GIS, primarily deployed to Bari and then major cities like to reinforce starting with Rome then Naples and Palermo. Checkpoints all along the coast and inland walling off the south peninsula were set up with help of local police forces before an official military response was issued.

Once military forces were officially stationed within the country assisting the first responders and local police forces, a travel embargo was issued throughout the country. Any travel into or out of the country was prohibited; regardless of stature, reason, or official documents. The only exception to this was the United Nations as they were well aware of Italy's situation and offered assistance as they had some resources to spare due to the Italy gaining quick control of the threat.

Those that were found to be infected were taken to specific quarantine zones for medical aid and testing. Those that were too far gone were either captured and experimented on by biologists and researchers or disposed of with deadly force. From Bari to the southern regions of Italy were deemed 'not-safe-for-travel'. Extractions of the civilian populous were conducted by regular military forces and the occasional special force response for high-value-targets. Otherwise, the area was restricted to military presence only or those authorized by government officials.

It wasn't long before the infection became unpredictable and military forces were overwhelmed. Outbreaks happening past what they called "the blue line" which ran from Bari to Naples. Due to the large civilian presence in Rome, outbreaks happened all across before the central Italian region was overrun. The infection quickly taking over Florence then Genoa, all the way to Turin and into France and Switzerland. Any remaining survivors, military or civilian, fled to the far western Island off the shores of Naples and Pompei. Inspections there were fierce and unforgiving where anyone found infected no matter their age or reputation were quarantined in harsh conditions or killed altogether. Body burned and disposed of.

With the total population of 60 million in Italy, 26 million were killed with another 27 million infected. 7 million remained either unaffected or unaccounted for on the western Island or thinly spread within Italy.
