"You're about one more order away from getting retaken over by a different western power so we can actually stop this d*mn outbreak." Shouts the Minister of Health of Volinovia. "The Green Cross is not pulling out we are pulling through. Why don't you sit back and let the professionals do their job."

The Green Cross will be sending more missions. If not to Xi Chang to the borders of it.
