Another Reason to Hate Mosquitoes - A New Malaria Strain

Cambodian Troops Quarantine Quan'sul

There has been a small outbreak of “zombism” in a small town near the border of Laos in North-Eastern Cambodia.

The culprit was discovered to be mosquitoes native to that region carrying a new strain of Malaria which thus far has a 100 percent mortality rate and kills victims in fewer than 2 days.

After death, this parasite is able to restart the heart of its victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believed to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.”

Cambodian officials say that the outbreak has been contained and the public has no need to worry.

General Ary Serey had this to say, "We have obtained samples of this new parasite and plan to learn how it starts the heart and other major organs of the deceased. We intend to use this to increase the quality of life for all."

US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice opposed the plan saying that the Cambodian government holds a great biological weapon and should destroy it immediately. Cambodian officials have yet to comment.

A United Nations team will be dispatched to Cambodia to confirm the safety of biological research in Cambodia.
Wow, it finally happened. Zombies in Africa. Who would have thought?

Time to play Resident Evil in Cambodia :p

I've read it before some time ago, somewhere in April I think :p
As Cid has already stated, this is fake news.
It’s a late April fools joke, guys :p

(And if you read the date of the article you’ll see that it’s April’s 1st.

I got this by mail (on SJ Games’ Daily Illuminator) this weekend, and thought it was amusing. Later Steve Jackson wrote saying that several worried readers were sending emails to tell him that it was fake :lol:

And if not for the URL, that site is pretty convincing :)

At least it was more weird than some of the stuff that Player-X posts :p

Elly had the best reply overall ;)
Yup the site is pretty convincing, but the date and url were what made me know it was fake ;)

Playing Resident Evil over there would be pretty cool as some kind of activity for an NGEmu meeting :evil:

Do we have any Cambodian members to host the party? :p
