"Now to the Newsflash. In a small town in Venezuela, came reports about a middle-aged man who attacked the people around him. The suspect killed one person and injured four, before the police could stop him. The surviving victims are now being treated at the hospital for bite and scratch marks the attacker caused.
The police and paramedics, who had been on the scene, stated that the attacker had apparently been infected by rabies. Presumably caused by a rabies infected animal attack that the Suspect had previously obtained before his own attacks in the small town.
He is now in an isolated hospital ward and remains under police custody." (teleSUR)
"The number of rabies infected humans increases and begins to spread worldwide. There have been worldwide reports with the same symptoms. The law enforcement departments try to contain the threat by keeping them quarantined and in custody." (MSNBC)
"DID A NEW DARK WIZARD OR WITCH ARISE AND CURSED THE MUGGLES?
It has been five days since the global attack on Muggles has been reported and has been spread around the world. Muggles believe it to be an illness, a disease from a rabies animal attack which spreads to other Muggles. But the Magical Devision and Law Enforcement believe that the nature of this so called sickness is based on a dark curse, which resembles the Inferi Curse." (The Magical Times)
"Physician and scientist have no explanation. They advise not to get close to anyone, who bears these symptoms, and to call the police immediately." (N24)
"The same rabies like symptoms has been confirmed in many countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, South-America, Australia, and now, in the United States. It has been stated today, that the rabies attack has reached the major cities in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, New York, Texas, New Mexico, Nevada, and California. The World Health Organization still does not know what causes this infection, or how to cure them. The WHO has declared the current situation as a global outbreak, after seeing the high infection rate worldwide." (FOX News Channel)
"ATTACK IN THE MAGICAL VILLAGES EVERYWHERE! NO ONE KNOWS THE DARK CURSE!
Yesterday, the first reports of the same mysterious attacks have been reported in the Magical World. Villages in Louisiana, New York, California, Florida, Greece, Italy, India, China, South-Korea, Egypt, and Tunisia have been attacked by the same unknown curse. There is still no lead on the identity of the new Dark Wizard or Witch." (The Seer)
"More and more reports are made all over the world that tell of infected people attacking their victim. Witnesses tell of horrific cannibalistic behavior and of those who have been bitten or scratched by these infected people, begin to develop the same symptoms, shortly after. We still don't have an official statement of how the infection transfers or what causes these, might we say, inhuman behavior of the infected. Eyewitnesses from around the world, some of them who wish to remain anonymous, confirmed the rumors that the victim of the infected died and turned into these…things. (Euronews)
"UNKNOWN CURSE KILLS AND TURNS THOUSANDS OF MUGGLES, WIZARDS, AND WITCHES AROUND WORLD!
The Unspeakables around the world excluded the possibility of a modified Inferi Curse. They still don't know what causes this curse or who could have cast it." (The Visionary)
"Today, my wife and I were sitting on our rooftop terrace enjoying the weather and day, when we suddenly heard loud noises and shoutings. It came from our neighbor. They were in the garden and at first we thought they were fighting, but then we noticed that the wife of our neighbor was biting…eating her husband. She had been one of those infected. My wife called the police, who told us to stay put and not to approach them. We…stood there frozen on the rooftop and saw how my neighbors wife, killed her own husband and…ate him. There is no other way to explain what we saw. She was eating her husband!
"I couldn't tell how long it took until the police and ambulance arrived. Four police officers went into the garden of my neighbor and the infected woman turned, from her ripped up husband she's been eating, towards the police officers and rushed towards them. The police were shouting for her to stop moving, but she ignored it and then one of the officer's shot her in the chest. She didn't react at all. Like she wasn't feeling the bullets. Then they shot at her twice again, but she didn't stop, and then one other officer shot her in the head, and she went down. We thought this was finally over, but then suddenly her dead husband began to sit up. He was definitely dead. I am not crazy! His chest was ripped wide open and…he could have never survived this. It's not possible. But he stood up and moved towards the police officers. We could see the horror and disbelieve in their face, as they tried to stop the man, but he was just like his wife. Not listening and they shot him first in the open chest, but he kept moving! Just like his wife, as if the bullet didn't hurt him and then another officer shot him in the head.
My God… there was so much blood! I have never seen something like this before. These aren't just rabies-infected people. This is something much worse and the government is keeping this quiet." (John K. Lewis from Italy on Facebook)
"DEAD RISES! THE ZOMBIES ARE COMING!
The Infected aren't cursed or sick as many wishes to tell us this, but in truth have turned into terrible soulless beings who wants to eat us! Muggles call them Zombies! Shortly after someone gets infected, caused by a bite, or scratch of the Zombie, they die and turn into the same soulless Zombie monster. These Zombies attack every human being, no matter a witch or wizard and will try to eat them. The only way to stop them is by damaging the brain, which will succeed with a well aimed Reducto Spell, or any other spell that can damage the brain." (The Quibbler)
"Two days after the United Nations confirmed that these infection attacks have reached a global outbreak, the President of the United States declares that all air, ships, and train transportations to be cancelled effective immediately. Many countries in Europe have followed the example, as did several other countries in Asia. No incoming or out coming transportations are allowed. Ignoring this law, will lead to a forceful and offensive action, against the refugees. The United States of America doesn't permit foreigners into their country. They will be seen as a threat and therefor will be in their legal right to use any defensive methods, to ensure the protection of the States. Additionally, several military troops stationed in the Middle East, North, and East Africa are ordered to return back to the United States within the next forty-eight hours until further notice."
