Magical Creatures or New Hex’s? Muggles Calling It COVID19

In a series of unprecedented events, one right after another, the Department of Mysteries and The Department of Magical Creatures have undergone a joint collaboration to understand what the muggle world has identified as COVID19.

Interestingly enough, not a single Wizard or Witch has been known to contract what the World Health Organization has deemed a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern”. Regardless of it not affecting the magical community, the department of International Magical Cooperation has been following cases of the “virus” in muggles throughout multiple countries in an attempt to understand its pattern of contraction.

When we caught up with Edward Scot, the Lead Liaison Minister, he had the following to say regarding the situation:

“At this point in time we’re not sure why The Wizarding world is not being affected by COVID19. We have no recorded cases of contractions. I do know that the Department of Mysteries is looking into how a hex may have contributed to this outbreak, and that the Department of Magical creatures is performing autopsies on deceased muggles to look for connections to any magical animals.”

In an interview, the Lead Liaison could not provide any definitive answers for The world of magic, but it is important to note that they are looking into hexes and magical creatures as viable possibilities to this malady that has muggles more frantic than Magical Community was the last time an Erumpent was set loose in Diagon Alley.

One important warning the the department of International Magical Cooperation  wishes to share with the world of magic is this:

“Even though Muggles have taken to boarding up in their homes, we must continue to adhere to the International Statute of Secrecy and safeguard our community from the Muggles. Some wizards have been seen in the empty streets of London wearing robes, using magic and failing to conceal themselves because so many Muggles seem to have gone into hiding. One group of young Wizards was even discovered by a group of Muggles playing Quidditch out in the open on the countryside! Took a whole team of Oblivators to rectify the situation. Despite these unusual times, I remind you to stay vigilant and avoid notice from the Muggle community.”

Could a Wizard or Witch have conjured a hex that only affects muggles? Is a new, un-identified magical creature responsible for the novel disease muggles and no-majs are contracting? Why is our Wizarding community immune to this pandemic?

There seems to be an abundance of confusion and misinformation infiltrating the media at this time about the circumstances surrounding this malady. But one thing is for sure, The Daily Prophet will continue to follow up on the ongoing circumstances that are alluding both the muggle and the magical world.

Until then, Witches and Wizards, remember to keep your wands and broomsticks clean (Scourgify!) and stay out of sight of the Muggle community while we get to the bottom of this mysterious ailment.
