In light of the disturbing Epsilon Sector reports concerning the loss of the passenger liner Blue Horizon, ISDN conducted a Q&A session with a spokesperson from the Confederation Department of Contagions (CDC).
CDC: Well, first determine the length of the contact. If it was less than five seconds, then the five second rule clearly applies and no action is needed. If contact lasts longer than five seconds, then run your hands under a faucet and be sure to get your fingers wet. If handwashing facilities are unavailable, at least brush your hands off on your pants for 20 seconds.
ISDN: What kind of hazmat gear do you recommend?
KN02 fighter, that's the best. These are certified by Crius medical officials to efficiently filter alien toxins, even in the vacuum of space.
ISDN: Some people are comparing the recent reduction of containment standards to the circumstances that led to the plague known as Malacreaux's Bite. What is your response to this?
CDC: The loss of the Io Colony was clearly the result of Akkbar's Doublecross. Retaining the three-stage decontamination process would not have changed the outcome.
ISDN: Finally, do you have any comment on the recent news regarding Wasp interceptors?
CDC: Yes, we would recommend pilots over 50 actually get a second booster.
ISDN: There you have it.
