+++ Opening Officio Medicae Report +++
++ Clearance: Zulu Alpha ++
+ Disease Risk Analysis: Extremely Severe +
+ Designation: 'The Blight' +
Transmission: Airborne, waterborne, and by touch, the Blight is highly transmissible.
Initial Symptoms: Irritation of skin and eyes, loss of full range of mobility, muscle weakness, disorientation. Initial symptoms are relatively mild compared to once the incubation period is complete, and despite efforts to catch the Blight at this early stage, efforts at treatment to halt the progression to its Terminal Symptoms have thus far met with limited success.
Terminal Symptoms: As the Blight takes hold, the host's body is completely rewired. Muscles undergo severe atrophy, and then subsequently explosive regrowth, causing a buckling of the spine and a irrevocably hunched posture. Skin discolours and thins, stretched across the new unnatural muscle structure. Multiple organ failure soon follows, and the disease itself takes over the failed organs' functions in keeping its host alive. Finally brain function completely breaks down, and the host loses all rationality and memory, and is overwhelmed by an insatiable desire to feast on live flesh.
Known strains: Only one strain of the Blight has been identified.
Lethality: Host bodies are able to survive the Blight for weeks, nevertheless its final lethality rate is believed to be 100%.
Treatment: Isolate and purge.
