Is necro mortosis real?
No, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially stated on Thursday, May 31, 2012 that Zombies do not exist.
CDC spokesman David Daigle sent an email to the Huffington Post after an inquiry stating that the "CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)."
Part of the reason for all the recent belief is that the CDC has done some tongue-in-cheek disaster-preparedness stunts using Zombies as the disaster.
These were done as a way to engage new audiences stating that if one is prepared for a "Zombie Apocalypse," then one is prepared for a real emergency such as a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack.
The sudden surge in Zombie belief and fear seems to stem from a recent event in Miami, Florida in which a man in a possibly drug induced psychosis (suggestions were raised of "Bath Salts" being the drug in this case), savagely attacked and ate the face of another man.
An eyewitness to the scene described it in the New York Daily News as "The guy, he was like a zombie, blood dripping, it was intense. The closest thing I've seen to it? 'The Walking Dead'."
This was, however, a case of drug abuse, not a Zombie-Creating virus.
