CDC Releases Zombie-Preparedness Plan

The CDC got people’s attention Wednesday when it posted "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse” online. “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.” The blog post was a gag meant to highlight the center’s actual emergency plans, for things like hurricanes; it was, nevertheless, a huge hit, with both the original blog post and the cached version crashing due to traffic.
