Skyreach Quarantine Report Leaves More Questions then Answers
By Mira Ming Wei
Cobalt City, Eidolon – The Origin Colonial Authority put out its official report regarding the Skyreach Quarantine, which was lifted last Monday. The Station had been under strict lockdown for almost a month before the quarantine was lifted as unceremoniously as it was instated. Initially, no cause for the quarantine was reported, and stories circulated widely of rogue drone outbreaks and strange alien monsters.
The Origin Colonial Authority’s report today lists the much more mundane reason of an outbreak of Red Tiver Fever among a science team, which required preventative quarantine measures.
The unusual duration, and information blackout surrounding the quarantine have since been explained as steps taken to ensure the virus did not spread to the rest of the station population.
Nonetheless, not everyone is convinced, with the Spacers Guild lodging an official complaint with the Office of Central Reconnaissance, saying that vital information regarding the outbreak is being withheld or covered up.
