While that may sound like a great disease to have, this also will eventually lead to a terrible and gruesome death.
To make matters worse, before the pandemic, the "Great Wave" swept through the world, causing a series of natural disasters that destroyed all energy sources and communications, causing chaos. There is hints that this "Great Wave" caused the illness itself.
