Greenland Facility

Status: Abandoned
Located in Greenland, it is the facility that suffered an outbreak of the H1N3 virus as a result of xenozoonosis. The facility was deep into research that would have made it possible to use pig organs for human transplant when the virus jumped species. The outbreak forced Colonel Paul Fischer of the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) Special Threats division to order fuel bombs to be deployed on the site, ensuring the virus, infected scientists, and infected pigs to all be vaporized.
