Zombie Apocalypse

The theme of the zombie movies/shows is always the same - mindless, soul-less, living dead voraciously killing those who have not yet died and either devouring them or making them Zombies as well.

We could be seeing the beginning of the realization of that metaphor with angry, soul-less people unleashed on society, out to kill the vibrant, living force that has impelled democratic advances worldwide. Three such Zombies have appeared in the U.S. in the last week, pursuing the living and coaxing out more Zombies from the dark shadows of fear and a moral void.

Don't kid yourself, with leaders in denial, or worse, injecting the disease into victims themselves, this could become apocalyptic faster than anyone ever imagined.

4. How clever!

Never Fear CDC is Ready

Get a Kit, Make a Plan, Be Prepared

If zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak. CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation. This assistance might include consultation, lab testing and analysis, patient management and care, tracking of contacts, and infection control (including isolation and quarantine). Its likely that an investigation of this scenario would seek to accomplish several goals: determine the cause of the illness, the source of the infection/virus/toxin, learn how it is transmitted and how readily it is spread, how to break the cycle of transmission and thus prevent further cases, and how patients can best be treated. Not only would scientists be working to identify the cause and cure of the zombie outbreak, but CDC and other federal agencies would send medical teams and first responders to help those in affected areas (I will be volunteering the young nameless disease detectives for the field work).

5. Actually ghoul would be a better term

zombies were originally a product of voodoo, created to be slaves. Ghouls on the other hand are the flesh eaters of popular culture. Check out I Walked with a Zombie or White Zombie.
