7th Heaven Quarantined

Posted by Fleet News Service on April 14, 2008

The luxury ship 7th Heaven is under quarantine orders after a mysterious outbreak of some agent believed to be bacterial. The first symptom is the onset of a fever of approximately 101 – 103 degrees. The malady has affected approximately 80% of those on board.

The text of the quaranteen notice, issued by Dr. Leandrah Whiteberry, reads as follows:

===================================================

A mysterious bacterial infection has swept rapidly through the population of 7th Heaven over the last week to 10 days.

The medical staff are doing all they can to treat those who are infected, but are as yet unable to determine the source of the infection or the method of transmission.

With the health and safety of the entire fleet in mind, we are quarantining 7th Heaven immediately.  Everyone who is on 7th at this time MUST remain on board. Those who may have the illness and who are on other ships must immediately make their way to 7th for treatment and observation.

Symptoms include: fever, sore throat, swollen glands followed by a rash on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet the rash progresses to a fully body rash and is extremely itchy and uncomfortable. It does not appear to progress to a life-threatening illness.

The medical team is working around the clock to find the correct agent to eliminate the infection. Until then, they can only treat the symptoms.

Your cooperation and prayers are requested.
