BREAKING: Secret Lab in Bay City origin of outbreak

A source wishing to be described only as “a patriot” has informed this paper that they believe the source of the outbreak across the entire nation is a secret lab situated in the Bay City area in Mishigamaa.

This information is gained by the source through interrogating captured infected persons.

If true, then is this, as suspected by some, the result of state experimentation or corporations meddling with nature in the name of profit?
