Over the last day or so, I have been desperately trying (and failing) to catch up with my online reading. And I cannot help but notice a trend: the zombie apocalypse has begun.
I must admit to being a bit surprised — given the infection vector I predicted, London ought to have been hit first. Or maybe Toronto, given where my family was when all this started.
Instead, Florida appears to be the epicenter of the apocalypse. But with all sorts of sources posting articles with titles such as Zombie Apocalypse Continues, it is only a matter of time before we’re all affected.
And the government? Woefully underprepared.
Although they have published a guide to Zombie Apocalypse Readiness in the past, David Daigle of America’s Center for Disease Control denied any knowledge of a zombie infection in a letter to the Huffington Post:
CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)
Dirk Brannigan may be our only hope.
