There are limited personals working in the field hospital and the excess deliveries were causing issues.
They released a new regulation that stopped patients from ordering food and other items, along with prohibiting relatives from delivering goods. The new regulation is due to not enough personals to accept and search the goods. Patients were ordering goods such as cigarettes and Kratom tea. The fight is due to the two groups of teenagers from different locations that already had existing issues with each other.
