"New York City is under quarintine because of the flu," the cop said. "No one allowed in or out of the city ."
"Until when?" Alex asked. "For how long?"

And also I was reading the book when a song came on the radio that matched perfectly. Funny how that happens idn't it? Anyhow this one was when Alex was at the church sort of at the end. I won't tell you why he went there. That'd ruin it for you. Anyhow it was a song by Crystal Method. Here you go.
