During the Original Outbreak of the Rage Virus in Great Britain, the day before broadcasts in Britain ceased, there were reports of Infection in New York. (28 Days Later (film)) However, these reports were presumably false, and were most likely spawned from paranoia.
On Day 15 of the outbreak, JFK in New York was heavily and strictly guarded due to the outbreak in Britain, and there was mass paranoia at the airport of Infection, as shown by people panicking when a single person sneezed. Clint Harris and Derrick took a plane to Europe from JFK.
