So, apparently the Center for Disease Control has FINALLY decided to take the inevitable zombie apocalypse seriously. However, they're plan for defense is absolutely terrible.
CDC official statement:
"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). It's 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."
Uhhh, yeah, I think I'll take my chances with a couple backpacks full of weapons while I wait for CDC's tests to conclude we're all going to die. Thanks, but no thanks.
