    Contrary to the Chief Healer of Cove’s statement reported last week, the hamlet does indeed face an outbreak. Ingrid now admits to having three patients showing the signs of an unknown illness, though one that does not immediately appear to be contagious. She says her three patients are local dock workers and may have been exposed to a toxic substance on one of the ships they were hired to unload.

    She asks that all captains who have recently visited Cove to review the health of their crews and ensure that their holds are not chemically contaminated. She says to look for the following symptoms:

    -Glassy-eyed expression
    -Flaking or pealing skin​

    Any afflicted with the illness should be allowed bed rest, given adequate fluids, and returned to Cove for treatment at their earliest convenience.
