    Looks like the communal facilities in the barracks have spread the infection to most of these. The numbers probably will go higher.

    The Tri forces and the police should form cluster groups within each camp separated from each other to minimise the risk of spreading the virus among the entire camp. An idea that should be explored.

    So does that mean the corantine process has not been as preached to the citizens. If not how come such an amount gets effected all at once.
