In Chapter 10 of Contagion, the hero medical examiner, Jack, rides his bike in to work in the morning to discover a TV news crew in front of the office. He then discovers that overnight three deaths from plague or suspected plague have occurred. The deaths were all patients of Manhattan General Hospital but all unassociated with Nodleman, the first case examined. The chapter continues through the autopsies and a conversation about the involvement of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in tracking the cases. It ends with a conversation about Public Relations involvement.
