I love that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is playing on the claim that today is the end of the world. They’re typically thought of as a serious and rather stuffy bureau, and by doing this, all the news outlets are reporting this, so they are getting free advertising too. Good move.
One especially hilarious note:
“4. Plan your evacuation route. When zombies are hungry they won’t stop until they get food (i.e., brains), which means you need to get out of town fast! Plan where you would go and multiple routes you would take ahead of time so that the flesh eaters don’t have a chance! This is also helpful when natural disasters strike and you have to take shelter fast.”
