The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta felt compelled to come out and address the mounting hysteria following a series of bizarre flesh eating attacks recently. For those concerned, the CDC says it is nothing more than a series of grizzly crimes committed in a short space of time.
According to Time.com, this all began in Miami on May 26 with a 31-year-old Miami resident stripping off all his clothes, attacking a homeless man and attempting to chew off his face. After only growling in response to police attempts to get him to stop, he was shot dead. He was reportedly high on bath salts. The following day, a New Jersey man stabbed himself repeatedly before cutting out his own intestines and throwing them at police. This was followed by a student being charged in the cannibalistic slaying of a housemate and a bear was caught eating the corpse of a convicted murderer.
This was all just too much gore in one week for people and rumblings began about some sort of virus giving rise to a Zombie Apocalypse. However, there is no such thing and people have no need to worry, according to the CDC.
“CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms,” agency spokesperson David Daigle told The Huffington Post last week.
Ghastly as these incidents are, people can rest assured there is no coming Zombie Apocalypse. The other good thing, none of these bizarre incidents happened anywhere near Loganville or Grayson.
