Wait what ?
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers advice to teachers on how to educate pupils about a zombie pandemic. The tongue-in-cheek section of the national health organization's website provides school teachers, scout leaders, and public health officials with the information they need to handle a situation in which the dead come back to life. The CDC admits the scenario is fictitious, but says the advice is still useful for teaching legitimate emergency preparedness skills. In one of the sections, teachers are asked to tell their students they need to prepare a report for a government agency because "a zombie apocalypse is imminent." The students are then assigned to research a real disaster, such as Hurricane Katrina, the Chernobyl catastrophe, or the H1N1 outbreak, and see what they can learn about the preparedness measures used in those cases.
