SPECIALIST ROBERT ARMITAGE: When did I get to Manhattan? Early days, right after the outbreak. they mobilized us on the seventh, had us in transports to the city on the eight. Quarantine was already coming down. It was weird as hell to see traffic going in to Manhattan and not see anything coming out. People hadn't started dying yet, but already things were pretty shaky. Half the city was sick and the other half was afraid to go to work cause they were afraid of getting sick.
