 For most of March, Starlight Academy was closed. Infected residents were brought to a quarantine hospital in the forests of Manta Carlos, far away from the rest of the city. The quarantine ended when a group of terrorists attempted to destroy the hospital and its occupants with bombs. Once the threat was identified, authorities and patients worked together to remove many  of the bombs before they could detonate, and the patients were evacuated before armed terrorists could make an attempt to assault the hospital. For most of March, Starlight Academy was closed.

-Two prominent pharmaceutical companies worked as quickly as they could on a cure. First, a company known as Blue Cross came out with an antiviral treatment which they beleived ​could cure the disease, but it could only be produced in small amounts. The first batch sold out almost instantly, costing hundreds of dollars per bottle. This "​cure"​ was later found to be ineffective,​ and all those who had taken the cure would later become even more sick than those who hadn'​t. The lead researcher involved in creating this cure, a mysterious "Dr. Holmes,"​ disappeared before he could be reached for comment. Later investigations found that Holmes was likely responsible for creating the virus in the first place.+Two prominent pharmaceutical companies worked as quickly as they could on a cure.

 By the end of March, Caduceus Pharmaceuticals had come out with an effective cure for the disease. The government and Caduceus worked together to distribute the cure to the entire population.
