Supermarket shelves are emptying and businesses are closing, as San Andreas announces a state wide lockdown in response to a growing number of Car-Owner Virus cases.
The deadly outbreak began in China, where a group of Maibatsu factory workers became the first human cases to show symptoms of the disease. Health officials say a contaminated batch of Pangolin Dashboard trim used on the 2020 Penumbra model is the most likely source of the virus.
As the number of affected car models continues to rise exponentially, residents of Los Santos have begun stockpiling essential supplies. Shoppers at the Davis Mega Mall are reporting empty toilet paper aisles, with violent confrontation between desperate customers seemingly commonplace.
Public Health Los Santos has issued the following advice:
Always wash your hands after touching the steering wheel, and maintain separation of at least 2 feet between yourself and the air freshener.
Legitimate business earnings in Los Santos are already nearing collapse, and this outbreak of Car-Owner virus will likely deal a significant blow to the city's once-booming entertainment industry. All city night clubs are required to shut their doors to prevent further spread, yet there is no indication of how long these lock-down procedures will need to remain in place.
