You read correctly.
The Centers for Disease Control has issued a guide to help us better equip ourselves in the event of a mass zombie invasion.
Entitled, “Social Media: Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse,” the guide outlines the history of zombies, defining a zombie as “a human corpse mysteriously reanimated to serve the undead.”
The guide also outlines how one becomes a zombie by way of bites, which pass on the infectious zombolism virus through the mingling of bodily fluids.
Luckily, the preparedness guide is specific in its advice on first aid items. It also advises on families to sit down and hash out an emergency plan in the event of a zombie attack, including, “where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your door step.”
The CDC promises that “if zombies did start roaming the streets,” they would treat it like any other disease outbreak. “Not only would scientists be working to identify the cause and cure of the zombie outbreak, CDC and other federal agencies would send medical teams and first responders to help those in affected areas,” the guide promises.
I, for one, am grateful and relieved to know that at least one branch of our government takes zombie attacks seriously.
How about you?
