PostSubject: National Geographic says "zombie virus" possible   Sat Mar 25, 2017 5:31 pm

Read the article.

This article was posted way back when -- on October 27, 2010 -- and the article examined a frightening premise. It reported that a "zombie" apocalypse is possible, if hybridization between the flu and the virus were to occur, though #NationalGeographic has made it clear the hybridization is "highly improbable."

Of course, the #zombievirus National Geographic portrays is very much unlike the movies in that sufferers wouldn't be dead, but they would be rabid, out of their minds and unpredictable, exhibiting effects similar to the "rage virus."

Samita Andreansky, virologist at University of Miami wrote:
"Sure, I could imagine a scenario where you mix rabies with a flu virus to get airborne transmission, a measles virus to get personality changes, the encephalitis virus to cook your brain with fever [...] and throw in the ebola virus to cause you to bleed from your guts. Combine all these things, and you'll [get] something like a zombie virus."
