So I was checking out Nerdcore, as I tend to do, and I came across a post called Swine Flu Zombies! So I thought, haha, yeah, pandemics make people zombies, way to join in on the fun sooo late, Nerdcore. But then I saw the article it was quoting....
From the BBC,
There has been a small outbreak of “zombism” in London due to mutation of the H1N1 virus into new strain: H1Z1.
Similar to a scare originally found in Cambodia back in 2005, victims of a new strain of the swine flu virus H1N1 have been reported in London.
After death, this virus is able to restart the heart of it’s victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believe to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) has raised the alert to phase six, its highest level, and advised governments to activate pandemic contingency plans.
So I got really freaked out and was like, what the hell?! Zombies?! What's happening?! Then I continued reading the article,
In the latest developments:
* The Netherlands confirms its first case of zombie swine flu, in a three-year-old boy recently returned from Mexico. After passing away early this morning, he rose from the dead and lunged at his mother.
Okay, THAT's not true.
The article ends with this,
Have you been affected by the zombie strain of swine flu? You can send your experiences using the form below. You can also send your questions about the decision to raise the alert and we will send it to our health experts.
So, listen. Zombies aren't real. And the BBC is having some fun with gullible people like me. But...zombies aren't real...right? This article is making fun of how everyone is panicking over nothing, right? WHY DO I THINK ZOMBIES COULD BE REAL?
In other news, after forcing myself to sleep for 12 hours, I think I may be better! Take THAT, Zombie flu!!
