Not necessarily. If the CEP is small, the infestation is small or
nascent, and the radius of total destruction is large. And yes, if you
get the focus and there's none other nearby.

All very arguable. I was assuming best case; a known lab, still locked
down, with goo ready to deploy, or barely deployed, with a single focus.
I have no reason to believe such an optimistic outbreak would occur.
