It was around then that a Chinese scientist named Li Chen defected to the United States, carrying a diskette record of China’s most important and dangerous: a new biological weapon in a decade. They call the stuff ‘Wuhan-400’ because it was developed at their RDNA labs outside of the city of Wuhan, and it was the four-hundredth viable strain of man-made microorganisms created at that research center.
“Wuhan-400 is a perfect weapon. It afflicts only human beings. No other living creature can carry it. And like syphilis, Wuhan-400 can’t survive outside a living human body for longer than a minute, which means it can’t permanently contaminate objects or entire places the way anthrax and other virulent microorganisms can.
And when the host expires, the Wuhan-400 within him perishes a short while later, as soon as the temperature of the corpse drops below eighty-six degrees Fahrenheit. Do you see the
advantage of all this?”
There are some identifiable differences noticed between the fiction bioweapon and the real disease.
- In the novel, virus Wuhan-400 is a man-made weapon but in reality, specialists are still figuring out the origin of the virus.
- In the book, the virus has a 100% mortality rate but COVID-19 estimate death rate is somewhere less than 5%.
However, the story of the novel revolves around a mother who has lost her son when he goes on a camping trip. Every single person on the trip is dead. Their death is clueless. Mother is in grief and not ready to accept that her son is no more.
