Americans Wish Ebola Was As Cool As Zombie Plague

November 3, 2014

EbolaWith the first cases of Ebola reaching the United States, Americans are catching up on the deadly disease that has killed close to 5,000 people and infected three times that many. Surveys have shown that Americans are disappointed that Ebola does not infect its victims like other diseases have in movies and shows like “The Walking Dead” and “Zombieland”.

A large number of respondents kept referring to TWD in their questions having to do with the spread and containment.

When told the realities of how it is spread, many answered, “Yeah. That’s what they want you to think. Then everyone’s walking around like a zombie.”

When asked about the conditions in other countries infected, most Americans could not point out where Liberia or Sierra Leone were on a map, the two countries with the most reported cases this year.
