    if only a rabies epidemic or a zombie virus really hit the world instead of the pointless Coronavirus. I would love a mass population clean out, whilst leaving the infrastructure in place. It would pretty cool having empty highways & homes to have the pick of. Just need a high level of luck....

Chapter 1: First Contact
A man sits in one of the seats of a train, the murmurs of the passengers and the movement of the train are closing his eyes. He slept with his head leaning against the window until a certain smell woke him up. Puckering his nose, he looks and smells around. A woman, sitting in front of him, carries a handkerchief to her mouth while she coughs. The train continues to advance, "Next station, Belgrano C "announces the recording on the loudspeakers. The smell intensifies, looking to his left he can see a tramp fighting with his wife. As he watches them, his cell phone vibrates. It was a message from Valentina, his girlfriend. " Iña I'm coming home a little later, gonna stop by the greengrocery." While Iñaki was putting his phone away, he hears another cough. He turns his neck and discovers a man who, occupying the two seats, carries the collar of his shirt to his mouth. Drops of sweat fall down his forehead. "Next station, Nuñez." The doors open and Iñaki lazily leaves the train. Iña

Chapter 2: Valentina
Once on the surface, Iñaki's heart relaxes. The sounds of traffic surround him and, with the image of Black sweatshirt still in his mind, he gets into the first taxi he sees. "It's hot for September, huh?"Comments the taxi driver looking at him in the rearview mirror. "It's usually colder these days." "Yes." "Have you heard the news?" He asks while looking for a radio station to listen to. "No," Iñaki replies, contemplating his hands. "Unemployment went up another three percent." Iñaki finds the taxi driver's eyes in the rearview mirror and says, "Three percent?" "That's what they said on national radio." Says the man after scratching his mustache. "What struck me was the number of patients who are being admitted to hospitals across the country. The journalist commented that they had had an increase of 30%. Some hospitals are overflowing. I hope it's not contagious." Iñaki's body rocks with the movement of the car and, as the driver continues to tell the news, he closes his ey

Chapter 3: Reality Check
Iñaki and Valentina find themselves eating on the couch. Reports of human rabies cases continue to appear, as do reports of overflowing hospitals and security forces parading through the streets. In New York, they are no longer accepting patients in their hospitals, and in the Netherlands, they have already declared a curfew.Germany, like France and Canada, closed its borders, and, ironically, Italy mobilized much of its army to its border with Switzerland...more security forces to the north (border with Europe) than to the south (an area continually plagued by terrorism and African immigration).>"I'm scared," Valentina says as if she could read Iñaki's thoughts.Looking at her, Iñaki checks that the food on her plate is almost intact. He brushes a strand of hair from her forehead and is about to give her a few words of encouragement when someone knocks on the door.TOC. Iñaki looks at

The tears, however, have already dried up.Time seems to have frozen until Iñaki hears the sound of a patrol siren. He can hear the roar of its engine and the wheels biting into the asphalt. Iñaki sharpens his ear and hears the screeching of the wheels sliding breaking, metal twisting.A thunderous sound rumbles throughout the house and a cloud of smoke ascends to the sky behind the window.Iñaki walks over to the window and his eyes widen as he gazes at the hell below. A fire devours the entrance to the building across the street. Smoke covers the walls and windows. He can barely make out what used to be a police car.A burning body runs out of the interior of the vehicle. The smell of burning goes through the window and into Iñaki's nose. Another burning body comes out of the car. A desperate cry can be heard from the street corner. Iñaki looks with eyes an

Chapter 5: The Age of Incommunication
The night has fallen. The hands of the clock rotate relentlessly as the silhouettes of the two corpses stalk Iñaki in the darkness of the living room. The alcohol that swam through his bloodstream has also left him.The entrance door continues open and so many hours pass in the same way. A sound or a thought- Iñaki is not sure- breaks his dream state. Never before had his limbs weighed so heavily on him, nor had he felt his mind so anesthetized. "Survival!" Iñaki does not know where the message comes from or if he should hear it.Why keep living in a world like this? To end up being another zombie? Are they even aware of being so? To continue to exist, to continue to breathe?The questions resonate in Iñaki's head when he feels something moving in his leg. His heart races as he reaches for his jeans; It's his cell phone. When he takes it out of his pocket he sees that the screen indicates Mama."Iñaki?" Asks his mother's voice."Yes.""You all right, son? What's going on in Buenos Air

A few meters behind Iñaki, the arms freeze for a few seconds before continuing to investigate the air.Iñaki throws the earth over his shoulder, digs again, and again the infected stops.
