Zombie Apocalypse CDC
May 21, 2011 by staff
Zombie Apocalypse CDC, “Zombie Apocalypse.”That blog posting title is all he did that a medical health public behind the scenes to set off a frenzy of Internet through tired old advice to keep water and flashlights on hand in case of a hurricane.
“You may laugh now, but when it happens, we will be happy to read this, and well, maybe you even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency,”wrote Dr. Ali Khan’s blog emergency preparedness from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Khan ads usually draw 1,000 to 3,000 visits in one week. This – released Monday – a total of 30,000 in one day. At night, he got 963,000 page views and was the first view on the website of the agency, due in part to coverage of the media.
“The response has been absolutely excellent,”Khan said. He said that most people understand that it was tongue in cheek.
More importantly, CDC officials said, is developing the interest of adolescents and young adults who otherwise would not have read the guidance of a federal agency about the importance of planning a route or the amount of water and what tools to store in the event of a storm.
The idea evolved from a session with the public Twitter CDC earlier this year on planning for disasters. Activity fire when dozens of tweets came from people saying they were worried about the zombies.
