The Spanish government issued a nationwide notice on September 1st that the “Spanish Armed Forces” have been called to assist with curbing COVID-19. Their assistance will go beyond the borders of Spain, providing military aid to nations in Europe & Asia. SAF Recruits are heading a call issued by the United Nations Health Agency, which is to give the countries with surging infections specialized care. UNHA believes this will stop hundreds of thousands, to millions of deaths.
SAF Recruits are facing an infectious war; one the world hasn’t ever fought on such a massive scale. COVID-19 has killed the lives of 814+ thousand worldwide while infecting a total of 23 Million.

However, the Flu Season is showing a rapid increase of infections worldwide. This includes SAF Recruits home nation of Spain, which has sustained 480+ thousand cases of coronavirus & 29,194 deaths as of September 2nd.
