Medical overflow camps, (TV: The Gathering) known simply as overflow camps, were a relief strategy sold by PhiCorp to the United Nations, and set up by various governments, in the wake of Miracle Day. (TV: Escape to LA) Around half of overflow camps were converted old army camps (TV: The Categories of Life) and they were compared by some to concentration camps for the conditions and how people were incinerated. (TV: The Middle Men)

They made use of the categories of life to group patients, with categories one and two being sent to the camps. Category 1 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. (TV: The Categories of Life)

History Edit

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. Rex Matheson was taken to a Module in a San Pedro Overflow 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 incinerated, to prevent her informing anyone of treatment at the camp. (TV: The Categories of Life)

61 days into the post-Miracle Great Depression, the British government maintained that all medical overflow camps would remain open and that all category 1 patients were to be taken in for disposal under new emergency laws. (TV: The Gathering)

The overflow camps were made redundant when the Miracle was negated in September 2011, resulting in the deaths of all category 1 patients. Within the Cowbridge camp, the deaths of Geraint Cooper and a young girl were witnessed by Rhys Williams and Andy Davidson respectively. (TV: The Blood Line)

List of camps Edit

Nationwide in Great Britain alone, there were 35 camps. America and Europe quickly adopted the category system, with nations involved in the Pan-African Summit also agreeing to the legislation. China resisted. The locations were Cowbridge, South Wales, High Wycombe, South England, Liverpool, North England, Plymouth, South-west England, Munster, Ireland and San Pedro, California.
