"The rules are simple.
1. Avoid populated areas at all costs.
2. If you come in to contact with other people, assume you have it.
3. The virus can survive on surfaces for upto 24 hours, never touch anything that's not disinfected.
4. Take what you need and never look back.
You break the rules, you die. You follow them, you live... may be!"
