First the Miami Zombie Cannibal Incident, now other zombie cannibal reports from around the globe. Japan, and several US Cities have all report zombie like incidents within the past few days.
To add to this – now Mexico is reporting a version of the “Plague”
A case of human plague has been reported in New Mexico, by the New Mexico Department of Health. The Plague is mostly carried by fleas, from rats but is a also found in other rodents.
The plague is the highest biohazard level (4/4) and is very contagious. It is unknown from the reports if the New Mexico Department of Health was able to isolate the cause of this infection.
People infected with the plague, need treatment within 24 hours. Without treatment the death rate is 100%. With medical treatment the death rate is 50%.
A 78-year-old Torrance County, New Mexico man is the first human case of plague in New Mexico or the United States in 2012. Health officials report the yet unnamed man is currently hospitalized in stable condition. According to a New Mexico Department of Health press release Thursday, they confirmed the man as having the plague, or Yersinia pestis today. NM Department of Health Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Catherine Torres said, “The Department of Health takes action when a plague case occurs to ensure the safety of the immediate family, neighbors, and health care providers. We inform neighbors door-to-door about plague found in the area and educate them on reducing their risk. We determine whether individuals close to the patient may also have been exposed to the plague and recommend preventative treatment when necessary.” Plague is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium,Yersinia pestis. It is found in animals throughout the world, most commonly rats but other rodents like ground squirrels, prairie dogs, chipmunks, rabbits and voles.
When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began issuing its satirical zombie preparedness alerts, they probably never thought they’d actually have to deny the existence of real zombies.
According to The Huffington Post, the CDC says that there were no zombies after the recent outbreak of cannibalistic attacks in the U.S. and Canada.
“CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms),” wrote CDC spokesman David Daigle in an email to the Huffington Post.
Zombie conspiracies are bouncing around the Internet, becoming the third most popular search term on Google, according to a June 1st report.
A man in Miami, Fla. attacked and ate the face of his victim. The victim survived, but the doctors are having a hard time piecing his face together. Then, an engineering student in Maryland allegedly stabbed a man and then ate their heart and brain. In Canada, cops are searching for a low-budget porn actor who allegedly dismembered and then raped and ate his victim.
What caused this recent outbreak of attacks? Some have blamed the drug “bath salts,” others have claimed it was caused by the LBQ-79 virus. The girlfriend of the Miami cannibal said he was under the control of a voodoo curse.
In the case of a real zombie outbreak, the CDC has a zombie preparedness website. According to its guide, you need one gallon of water per day, non-perishable food, medications, a utility knife, sanitation supplies, clothing and personal documents like your driver’s license.
