Covid:
If you come within 6 feet of me, I will rip you to shreds.

Atreyu:
Who are you?

Covid:
I am SARS-CoV-2. And you, whoever you are, can have the honor of being my last victim.

Atreyu:
I will not die easily. I am a warrior.

G'mork:
Ha! Warrior. Then fight the Nothing.

Atreyu:
But I can't! I can't get beyond the boundaries of America! [Covid laughs mockingly] What's so funny about that?

Covid:
America has no boundaries.

Atreyu:
That's not true. You're lying!

Covid:
Foolish boy. Don't you know anything about America? It's the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.

Atreyu:
But why is America dying, then?

Covid:
Because people have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams. So the Nothing grows stronger.

Atreyu:
What is the Nothing?

Covid:
It's the emptiness that's left. It's like a despair, destroying this world. And I have been trying to help it.

Atreyu:
But why?

Covid:
Because people who have no hopes are easy to control. And whoever has control has the Power.

Atreyu:
Who are you really?

Covid:
I am the servant of the Power behind the Nothing. I was sent to kill the only one who could have stopped the Nothing. I lost him in the Swamps of Washington DC. His name was Atreyu.
