The Center for Disease Control (yes the real one), has said that it would conduct an investigation into a zombie apocalypse “…much like any other disease outbreak…“
In the event of zombies roaming the streets, its scientists and staff would endeavor to determine the cause of the illness, the source of the infection and learn how it is transmitted and how readily it is spread. The CDC would look at how to break the cycle of transmission thus preventing further cases, and how infected patients could best be treated.
The CDC has stated “…it 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)… “
The CDC has also provided a Better Safe than Sorry list for preparing for pandemics, hurricanes and zombies.
