A flu-like illness could travel around the world in 36 hours and kill 80million people, experts have warned.
And some of those deaths will be in the UK! With new strains of the flu virus popping up like street-markets and then mutating into pop-up… Is it only a matter of time before the dreaded/eagerly anticipated Zombie virus hits?
A century ago the Spanish flu pandemic infected a third of the world’s population and killed 50million people.
But as Martin Fry sang ‘That was then but this is now’, is his Nostradamus-like prediction coming to fruition? Doctor Wu (no relation to the Steely Dan song) of The WHO, gave me his two cents worth. ‘Yes, I agree it’s quite possible we could witness a Romero-like virus, George not Caesar. I worry that phrases such as ‘aim for the brain’ and ‘when there’s no more room in hell’, will become commonplace in society.’
‘The threat of a pandemic spreading around the globe is a real one,’ the group said in a report released today. A quick-moving pathogen has the potential to kill tens of millions of people, disrupt economies and destabilise national security.
I asked Dr Wu,’ what advice he could give to stop the spread of a deadly virus?’ ‘Well, the first thing I would have done is voted for Brexit – The next step would be to assist a no-deal transition any way I could. The problem you have is if remain voters get their way it will open the floodgates to a potential swarm of deadly Walkers.’ I pointed out to the Doctor the UK already has that problem, and kids are going blind
