City of Fear

City of Fear1959

Dr. John Wallace:
[to Richards concerning the mayor notifying the public of the danger] You could tell them it won't wipe out the whole city. There's not enough of it. It's not a bomb. However... it will contaminate entire farms, milk, butter, eggs, get carried into markets on meat and produce, into theaters and restaurants, get carried around by people on their clothes, on their shoes, on insects and birds... and on children... Then you'll have to describe the symptoms to watch out for - hoarse coughing, heavy sweat, horrible retching. Then the blood begins to break down the cells. If you merely touch your skin, the watered blood just oozes out of your pores. Finally you hemorrhage internally. Blood fills the lungs. I doubt if anyone can explain that calmly to three million people without touching off the worst panic in history.
