New York City has been hit. A popular Tourist location. A large number Americans pass through New York City at least once in their life, but that will change. At least for now. The government and well-known politicians are discussing the implementation of mandatory quarantine. And partially, that would be a good thing. In a reality, in which the patent for the pathogen (Towner, Oct 24, 2008) is not owned by the United States government and the quarantine is not politically motivated. Those that remember the film “Escape From New York” can most likely imagine a scenario, in which the population with New York City would cut off from the remainder of the United States and left to fend for itself. The former British Independence Forts, such as Alcatraz, Liberty Island, Manhattan, Plumb Island and so forth, which are almost entirely federally owned, present highly fortifiable locations in the event of a nationwide spread. These locations are easily sealed off from the public and can be maintained independently from the rest of the country.
A mandatory quarantine provides an opportunity that allows for a lockdown that stretches across America with increased control over the average population. At first, the notion of quarantine appears reasonable, however, the departments in charge of those affairs are not commonly known for their humanistic touch, but more for their WW2, concentration camp style medical facilities. The dream of any diabolical scientist and dictator. They have already been accused of mistreatment and brutality, before the national spread of the disease. This can be referenced through any major natural disaster or catastrophe that has occurred throughout the United States over the last forty years. The overgrown wilderness that separates New York City from the rest of America, allows it to severed easily. Apart from a cow in the middle of the road and a lonesome New York farmer, the outskirts are vast empty spaces. However, its “neighbour” Washington DC remains functional throughout the beginning stages of a small outbreak. Thus the disease has not yet become severe enough to facilitate the lockdown the country, merely independent States at a time. This strategic spread of various strains of the Ebola pathogen suggests the implementation of a fail-safe within the plan. The case of the child that affected by the virus in Texas merely represents another strategic location that would result in the closing of borders. However, before that point, illegal immigrants are also likely to contract the disease and attempt to remain in hiding, which further compromises lives. Once a border town and the Big Apple has been affected, the Pacific North West of the United States represents a highly likely target. A small village in the Deadlands of America. The type of X-Files town in the middle of nowhere that sold out to Twilight. Once the third location has become affected, a closing of borders would become more probable. However, this also ensures that the disease has been introduced at three geographically wide spread locations for the effects of maximum contamination and containment. The containment itself would result in an increasing mortality rate, as the true agenda behind such an engineered pathogen surfaces. Depopulation and Control.
