CDC publishes a guide to preparing for a zombie apocalypse

The US government is so worried about the onset of a zombie apocalypse that the CDC has issued a manual on preparedness for this kind of apocalypse.

The instruction, by the way, contains useful information, which is also relevant in the event of a tornado, storm and any disasters,

“So what do you need to do before zombies…or hurricanes or pandemics for example, actually happen?” the CDC’s Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse guide reads. “First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house.

This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp.”

According to the CDC, one gallon of water per person, per day, is sufficient and that as far as food goes, you should stock up on non-perishable items that can last while.

The guide also recommends stocking up on prescription and non-prescription medications as well as things like knives, tape, battery-powered radios, and flashlights.

Although hygiene is likely to be the last thing on anyone’s mind during a zombie apocalypse — we’ve all seen how dirty Daryl Dixon gets on The Walking Dead — the CDC’s zombie survival guide says to stock up on household bleach, soap, towels, and other sanitation and hygiene-related products.

Assuming the world doesn’t come to an end by way of zombies, you’re going to want a copy of all your important documents too, like your driver’s license and passport.

“Although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use [first aid supplies] to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane,” the guide reads.

“Once you’ve made your emergency kit, you should sit down with your family and come up with an emergency plan. This includes where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your door step.”

This past year has showed us that anything is possible. Still, “zombie apocalypse” will most likely not be crossed off your 2021 BINGO card. But in case it does, know that the CDC is ready.

“If zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak,” according to the CDC. “CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation.”
