Contracting Sailor's Strait[edit]

Sailor's Strait is a virus residing commonly up North, within areas with high humidity, relatively low temperatures, and lots of water. Those who venture within these infected areas often contract the illness within seconds, either through infected air or contaminated water. It is also highly contagious, spreading through blood, touch, and saliva. The reason it is called "Sailor's Strait" is because it was common for pirates and sailors to contract this illness when venturing high above the Equator, where its optimal habitat resides.
