The group immediately responds and Angela and Pablo go with them. When they arrive at the area, the woman suddenly becomes aggressive and bites a policeman. She escapes and hides in one of the rooms. Meanwhile, the terrified residents in the building gather in the entrance hall as the entire building was sealed off and quarantined.
