CDC's Zombie Plan Is Resurfacing Amidst Fear Of Zombies In 2021

Are zombies coming in 2021? We can't know for sure, but the CDC's Zombie Plan from 2011 is resurfacing on the web and it says, "Better safe than sorry."

According to Forbes, people are claiming that the French philosopher Nostradamus predicted that zombies would emerge this year.

While the philosopher's predictions are far from explicit, he allegedly said, "Few young people: half−dead to give a start. Dead through spite, he will cause the others to shine, And in an exalted place some great evils to occur: Sad concepts will come to harm each one, Temporal dignified, the Mass to succeed."

While that doesn't exactly scream "zombie apocalypse," the CDC's Zombie Preparedness guide from 2011 has been trending on Google.

The guide itself says you need an emergency kit at your house with everything from water and food to medication and your important documents. 

It also says you should "Identify the types of emergencies that are possible in your area. Besides a zombie apocalypse, this may include floods, tornadoes, or earthquakes. If you are unsure contact your local Red Cross chapter for more information."

You should also pick a meeting place for your family and put together a list of emergency contacts.

Finally, "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!"

Better safe than sorry, right?
