331.12 // Core Quarantine

Galactic Senate Background
The Senate has just voted to establish a quarantine zone around a large majority of Republic-held systems in the core, in response to the continued outbreaks of the unknown illness. The vote was unanimous, with all Senators acknowledging the severity of the situation.

The continually increasing rate of infection, that has repeatedly surpassed predictions made by the Republic’s top microbiologists, has led to a death toll that continues to skyrocket. Coruscant’s chief medical scientist, Juan Hull, has described the disease as;

“one of the most aggressive viruses in the Galaxy’s recordable history which is showing no sign of slowing down”.

The Jedi Order has come out in support of the quarantine, with its High Council declaring full compliance with the travel limitations and expressed hopes to see the number of deaths quickly subside.
