As we left the volunteer centre yesterday, I had a medic tell me that I should get a tetanus jab as I had fallen over in the zone. At first, i took it with a 'pinch of salt' as I was barely grazed. But on reflection, I learned how poisonous the zone actually is. The water not only contained dead bodies, but moreso, poisons from telegraph poles. Apparently the boxes that you see located high on one in every half a dozen telegraph poles contain highly toxic ingedients.
The medic told me that I had four days to get a tetanus boost, and so I spent the morning searching for a local clinic that could save me- which thankfully I was successful in my search.
