Overflow camps were set up in the wake of Miracle Day by various governments on Earth. They made use of the categories of life to group patients, with categories one and two being sent to the camps. Geraint Cooper was sent to Cowbridge Overflow Camp in south Wales. There he was regraded from category two to one after he suffered a second heart attack.
Category one patients were taken to Modules where they were burnt alive so that they would actually die, the reasoning being that category ones were the equivalent of dead bodies lying around in large numbers after a plague or famine. Rex Matheson was taken to a Module in a Californian camp. He then filmed conditions within the Module and the burning of category one patients. Vera Juarez was put in a Module in the same camp by Colin Maloney and burnt, to prevent her informing anyone of treatment at the camp. (TV: The Categories of Life)
List of camps Edit
There were 35 camps in total. America and Europe quickly adopted the category system, but China resisted.
