    "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" Has A Message For You About "The Flare"

    WCKD is here to educate everyone, exclusively on BuzzFeed.

    A brief backstory for those of you who haven't read The Maze Runner trilogy: Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) and his group (the "Gladers") have escaped from a treacherous maze, only to learn that they're part of an experiment by a corporation called WCKD.

    Earth as we know it has been affected by a solar flare, and many humans have been infected with a disease known only as "the Flare."

    What exactly is the Flare? Well, WCKD is here to explain it for you.

    As WCKD states, a nasty virus is going around called the Flare that could really dampen your day. Here are some symptoms you should look out for:

    Your trachea will start to tighten, your heart will enlarge, muscle spasms will constrict your lungs, and your liver will not be able to metabolize.

    Then, your brain will become affected and you could suffer from some paranoia, hallucinations, and aggressive behavior.

    You may also form blisters, boils, and cysts.

    Luckily, if you get to one of WCKD's emergency medical centers, you'll be A-OK!

    But as all Maze Runner fans know, everything is not quite what it seems...

    I guess we'll have to wait until Sept. 18 to see more!
