March 5, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: Two Flus Over Cornell's Test

Illuminated Site of the Week:

All right, everyone's on board with the need for zombie defense - that's a good start. Usually some doctor played by Brad Dourif has to do something horribly wrong before the government heeds the crazed warnings of a fringe action-scientist played by Casper Van Dien. We've told you about how some scholars figured various authorities and governments would react to an outbreak of the undead (back on April 10, 2011), and Canada (being Canada) has worked out how the infection would spread (from August 29, 2009), but now . . .
 
Now Cornell University suggests there are two ways the zombie threat could go, and they've married their research with influenza insights only to find the two diseases map to each other with uncanny accuracy. Which means science may get a leg up from zombie flicks.
 
What a time to be alive . . . and stay alive.
