The World Health Organisation has declared a Category 6 alert as the result of a pandemic that is believed to have originated in a Chadwell Heath laboratory. One man who ate a Domino's pizza three years ago has been under observation ever since. A 30-year-old man from Newcastle was incapacited for 18 months, but has recently recovered and been seen in public for 60 minutes. A man from Wales reported problems with his balance two years ago and has been placed in the Chadwell Heath isolation ward. Men from Switzerland, Wales and England are all said to be suffering from the virus, which is believed to be spread through contact with a football pitch.
