Where will the Outbreak Begin?

There are a few major centers where a newfound/newmade virus may appear in the world:

1) The Center of Disease Control (CDC). Location: Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Located in a major city, the CDC is a huge research/quarantine facility controlled by the US government. The large number of people in the surrounding area (Atlanta) would make it possible for the virus to take hold quickly and spread fast. Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, the busiest in the nation, would have the virus spread to the entire world in a very short amount of time. This is by far the most dangerous place for the virus to be created.

2) The Amazon Rainforest. Location: South America
It is said that the cure to every disease can be found amoung the flora of the Amazon. The fact it, most of the rainforest in a mystery to biologists and scientists. There are large expanses of unexplored wildlife that could be and is hiding something from the rest of the world. Similarly, the constant deforestation is forcing whatever is hiding in there to come out and show its ugly face with the world. And once it does, we are doomed.

3) Vietnam. Location: Southeast Asia

The evidence is not in favour of Vietnam. Gonorrhea came from Vietnam, brought over to the Americas by GI's fighting the war and cheating on their wives. Gonorrhea. Now, with our Global Community, we have far more contact with the people of this nation than simply having sex with their women and demolishing their villages. We communicate, travel; we hire their children in sweatshops and have their descendants paint out toenails. If and when a new virus is discovered, it will wipe out millions ridiculously fast.

4) The Congo Rainforest. Location: Africa
Now, I know what you are thinking. Sure, blame Africa. Pick on them because of the whole AIDS thing. But that's not it at all. First of all, everyone knows that HIV was created by the US government, in the CDC, to kill the homosexuals and the poor people. Africa was their perfect scapegoat. Africa is the victim here.
Now, the Congo is the perfect breeding ground for a new virus to form. Carcinogens such as oil, intense sunlight, and a large quantity of sexual reproduction all converge on this rainforest, making the Congo capable of producing almost anything. Not to mention the amount of evolution having to occur to overcome AIDS and  malaria, which is aided by the same carcinogens. Zombiism is bound to appear in a year or less.

5) Northwest Territory. Location: Northern Canada
While researching, we noticed that this was a rather alarming place, but we put it out of our minds, because its Canada. Nothing ever happens in Canada. But after some looking into, we have discovered several reasons why this is the most threatening place in the world.
-No one lives in Northern Canada. Those few strange people that do are already skilled at fighting off rabid bears and moose and beavers and other cold-weather mammals.The cunning survive and these people have already fought the wilderness, and are best suited to fight off the zombies.
-Zombiism has been described as 'The Rage' (28 Days Later). It seems as though the virus causes the body to heat to a temperature that causes the brain to melt (hence the obsession with brains). This, accompanied by the fact that outbreaks seems to occur during the summer months leads us to believe that the virus needs warm conditions. Any person in the Northwest Territory would be safe, as it is a frozen tundra up there.
-Canada has been awfully quiet for the last few decades. I have often heard/been the subject of jokes indicating the uselessness of Canada. And they have taken it with very little complaint. It is my belief that they are attempting to not bring attention to themselves, so their secrets (the virus) will not be exposed before the apocalypse happens.
-In April of 1998, the Northwest Territory was split roughly in half and the new Provence of Nunavut was created.Not only would it make sense that they would be upset at the new lack of land and want to get it back, with interest. If the entire world's population is gone, the people of the Northwest Territory can then take over all the land and rebuild from the shambles. They are strong; they are creative; they will survive.


  1. 1) im feeling resentment toward men and war in the vietnam part.
    2) tottally agree AIDS was created by the US gov.
