The country of eating feces
Viruses are the smallest and simplest life on earth. It's only 20-300 nanometers in diameter and can be seen with an electron microscope. It has no cell structure and is only composed of nucleic acid and protein coat, so it can not be metabolized independently and can only parasitize in host cells. In the eyes of some experts, even whether the virus is biological or not is controversial. Experts call it "organism on the edge of life".
Like other life forms, the only purpose of viruses is to survive and reproduce, and to pass on their genes. Therefore, viruses exist to replicate themselves. But just as the ruins left behind after the war tell of the bloody storm that once happened, the irreversible damage to the host body caused by the virus after being killed is the last words of the dead people to the world, or more accurately, ridicule.

The story takes place in an island country called "flower country" in the Pacific Ocean. As the name suggests, this is a paradise swept by the warm monsoon. It is surrounded by vegetation and rich in products. Flowers bloom all the year round and its fragrance lasts for thousands of miles. Originally, life here is no different from the world outside the island. Until the beginning of 2020, a plague has completely changed everything.
The first few cases were diagnosed in a hospital near a seafood market in the western city. At first, no one cared, thinking that it was just a local spread of common influenza. It was not until the number of confirmed cases exceeded 10000 in just one week that the government and the community began to pay attention to it, issued a strict blockade order and imposed a curfew: after 7 p.m., all restaurants and entertainment places will be closed, all people must wear masks in public places, keep a social distance of 2 meters, and do not go out unless necessary.
This menacing virus is privately known as "flower virus". After all, it was first discovered in the country of flowers. It's not surprising to have such a name. However, this has been opposed by quite a number of "patriots" at home. They think that naming with directivity is a kind of regional discrimination. The virus has no national boundaries and is the public enemy of all mankind. It is really insulting to call such a name. Later, several newspapers that first used the term in the news publicly apologized, and the incident slowly subsided. However, the name "flower virus" has spread all over the world.
For a month, people at home every day looked at the increasing number of new infections: 6876, 6877, 6878 Immediately after it were the death toll in bold red letters: 9, 9, 9 Yes, the transmissibility of influenza is stronger than that of common influenza, but after all, it does not cause high mortality. It is also a great blessing. It is said that patients can recover slowly with their own antibodies after two weeks of unbearable fever and cough. The government is constantly promoting this on TV and online media, as if to tell the public that this is just an ordinary flu.
It wasn't until a surprising piece of news that people realized that things were not simple.
The cause of the incident is that the police in the southern city received a call from a prostitute in the middle of the night. In this country, prostitutes, as a profession, are recognized and protected by the special institutions of the state. However, if the clients are found, they will face a large fine. It is said that this will help to protect the vulnerable group of prostitutes and curb the continuous development of this industry from the source.
The woman was crying on the phone, as if she had been greatly stimulated, and her words were incoherent. It was not easy for the police to figure out that it was a 40 year old, fat middle-aged prostitute who complained that she was "smelling of rotten eggs" from the moment she entered the room and asked her to take a bath. But when the prostitute came out from the bath, he became more irritable, shouting: "it stinks! It's going to be hard! " He began to take off his pants and peed at the defenseless woman. Then he crudely pressed her under his body and began to shit in her face. "After the process is too painful, Mr. police, I do not want to recall." On the other end of the phone, the prostitute sobbed and complained, "who can stand up to a woman full of shit? Not to mention working for an hour after that! This is outrageous! Mr. police! This is a heinous atrocity
The prostitute called the police angrily after he was splashed with his stool by the prostitute. Originally, such absurd news should appear on the third rate gossip website. The reason why it was reported by the mainstream media was that when the police rushed to the prostitute's house to arrest the violent prostitute, they found that he was staring at his excrement on the bed sheet and asked a question that made people laugh and cry
"Mr. policeman, why does my stool smell sweet?"
Not long after, the problem became chilling. Because, according to the follow-up investigation, this gentleman just suffered from "flower virus", which was the first night he was discharged from hospital.
