End of Turn FifteenMarcher walked into the break room at the Research Station in Hong Kong. Tim was playing video games.
"What are you doing?" Marcher asked, puzzled.
"Playing video games. What does it look like I am doing?" Tim replied.
"Erm, shouldn't you be saving the world? We were commissioned by the President..."
"Nah, we've already got this." Tim said. "Just three quick cures and we're all good."
Marcher wasn't sure about the ethical aspects of this conclusion, but he couldn't argue with the effectiveness of it. He grabbed the USB drive with the information on the Yellow Fever, then headed back to the lab.
Tim mumbled something about being bored of video games and wanting to play mafia again.
[Tim has given Marcher Jovian the Los Angeles and Santiago cards. Tim has reached level 37. Choose one new perk... oh wait.]

An epidemic has occurred!
Three things will happen.
1. The Infection Rate will increase:
2. The bottom Infection Card is drawn, and that city receives three cubes.
3. The Infection Discard pile will be shuffled, intensifying the infection.
India and Iraq are facing massive influxes of Black Death cases. Doctors wonder if there's anyone fast enough to stop the disease, even with a cure discovered. [Kolkata, Baghdad, and Delhi all receive one black cube.]
