I will not be able to post until Saturday however I want my character in the group that is going to get supplies. Idk if that is a possibility but if so great.
Why do we capital-N Nerds love Mars so much?
Because it's beautiful, it's tough, it's buried in our mythic, childhood memories.
It's covered with human triumphs but also with sad stories of failure.

So almost everyone must have a phone, most likely with internet access.
Does this mean everyone is capable of calling their families, going on news sites and checking out social meadia?
Or is somehow everything shut down?

@Ninlil

Oh it would be quite possible. However, (And I have done study into this sort of disaster before) Imagine everyone in a single area calling emergency services at the same time. Cell towers can only cover so much, But after the first 24 hours most lines would then be free. Internet would be available for maybe four or five days before lack of maintenance would eventually fry everything. Also electricity would likely disappear after a couple days without people running and checking the different plants.

So, that would mean right now we still could access the internet and get certain information? For example, know which areas are affected.

@Ninlil

Yeah you would likely be able to stream video or even live news if your phone were able ot.

Ok. Then which areas do you think should be affected?
Should it be a global or local thing?

It's global, seeming to hit everywhere at once. That's the true horror. If there are any stations still going, all of them would be talking about this pandemic.
