Summary
The whole world has been terrorized and we wallow in terrible fear of getting sick. We placed our faith in medicine and now we pray for redemption. That's why our police kidnap the sick and send them to the furnaces. After we conquered a return of the Black Death, our scientists celebrated the triumph of modern medicine and the awesome power of antibiotics. But our bodies became weaker and the bugs became stronger and soon they were immune to anything our doctors could throw at them. It wasn't long until just the right conditions, high mercury levels in our food to be precise, came along and gave the super germs the breeding grounds for the elimination of the human race. That's what's happening to the United States; that's what happening to my family. First, Dad went missing, presumably dead overseas, then Mom caught the common cold and the Sanitary Police came and took her. Now I'm all alone. And I'm tired of wasting away, day-by-day, waiting for my turn to fall ill and be taken to the incinerators. I've decided I'm going to rescue her, even if it means the death of all of us. She deserves it. I deserve it. And the whole world deserves another chance to live
