London— There has been a small outbreak of the once believed to be fictional T-virus, a mutagenic virus that causes humans to become mindless in nature and to consume human flesh. The virus can be passed on via bites or scratches from a virus carrier.
Researchers at Umberella believe the origin of the outbreak to have begun at the Wesker & Son's a human butchery shop in London. Patrons were seen eating human limbs including hands, feet and human heads.

"We have obtained samples of this new virus and believe it is some sort of biological weapon," Umberella's Albert Wesker said. " Although the event in London is tragic, we believe we can evolve the virus and increase the quality of life for all."
The T-virus has a 100 percent mortality rating killing victims in just a few minutes. After the victim's death, the virus begins to decompose their body and the heart restarts. The individuals display an extremely violent and aggressive behavior.
It appears that the video game publisher Capcom continues to come up with awesome ways to promote Resident Evil 6. The faux butcher shop is actually raising money for a good cause and it isn't real human meat - it's regular animal meat made to look as such. The new was first reported by website MCVUK.
"We, at Capcom, are thrilled to be bringing Wesker & Son's to Smithfields," UK PR manager Adam Merrett said. "If the C-Virus was to become a reality, there would be No Hope Left in the world, and so we want to create the scare and tension that fans and new players will experience in Resident Evil 6 into the real world.
All proceeds from the sale of these items will go to the Limbless Association, a non-profit organization that provides information and support to the limb-loss community. Some of the service the group provides include information on sports for limbless people, a magazine that is relevant to the industry, fundraising and support groups.
Capcom also has a pair of lectures planned at St. Bartholomew's Hospital Pathology Museum. The lectures will take a look at the themes presented in Resident Evil 6 and how they can relate to the real world. The events will run for two day starting on Sept. 28.
