You do realize this actually came out some time back and it is just the CDC using a popular marketing style to get people to prepare for emergencies. Zombies are popular in movies and TV shows right now so instead of saying prepare for hurricanes, natural disasters or riots they use something that is popular and has the public's attention. They know the population for the most part has a short attention span like children, hurricanes just dont get people motivated anymore.

The military has used this same "zombie" scenario for a while to prepare for riots, mass casualty events and biological terrorism. The fact is it would be physically impossible for a corpse to reanimate however a virus either natural or man made could affect humans that cause Zombie like symptoms. Humans are mammals and if exposed to something like this (mad cow disease as an example) they would revert to using their mid brain which would basically just turn them back into wild animals without any reasoning ability.

In this case its just a fun and interesting way to get people to prepare so if a disaster of any kind happens the masses wont be so helpless and require as much help from emergency services. They learned a lot from the way New Orleans descended into utter chaos after Katrina.
say what?

Also according to analyst, the Zombie model was used because the racial and gender basic neutrality, "Zombies" are zombies regardless of gender, age or race. You are right, it is an interesting way to create interest. As we know they are not real, but stroll into wal-mart after midnight and I swear some of the people there are close to Zombies. Lol
