I can see it now, in a shtf senario:
If there is no more food, and people start eating each other for survival..
What would they call them. i'm sure they would be called zombies.
Guns are far less important than edged or blunt weapons in the case of a zombie outbreak. Guns are like ringing the dinner bell. You could be a crack shot, but it won't help if you're being swarmed by a thousand, previously unaware, ghouls. Best to dispatch them quickly and quietly, then be on your way.
If you have the time and the space, fire is another great cleanser. Attract as many as you can into a building that's of multiple stories, and within jumping distance of another building. Once the first building is full, set a fire and let the cookout begin. You won't even have to close the door, because zombies don't have the instinct of self preservation anymore. You just jump to the next building and haul ass away.

I wonder why the link to the CDC blog isn't working (either from the link in the news story, or directly) ... all it does is time out. Is it getting heavy traffic, or is it a cover up? hmmmmmm...

What I think is most interesting is that this release is just days before a "supposed" rapture.
Since some theorize that the rapture isn't a removal of the physical, just the soul, leaving behind an empty shell
watch out for them blue beams

Wait, are they talking about the slow ass walking Romero Zombies or those sprinter from the newer movies, because, I'm not a strong runner! I could MAYBE walk quickly away, but even that seems unlikely lol

Not entirely convinced this isn't an experimental conditioning effort by the CDC. No, I don't mean conditioning us for dealing with zombies, either. Ask any zombie buff what the procedure is for coping with a zombie outbreak and you'll likely get the following:
1. Arm yourself heavily. You want guns (shotguns preferably), as much ammo as you can physically carry, and a backup such as a sword, machette, or fire ax.
2. Secure food & water
3. STAY PUT if you are in a defensible location
4. If you must move KEEP AWAY FROM REFUGEE SHELTERS!
Now, look at this CDC garbage. NOTHING said about arming yourself. They discourage staying put, encourage quickly migrating away from your safe house to a refugee camp, etc.
It's crap clearly designed and written to modify people's behavior away from the idea of arming, defending, and protecting their own and instead pushing the idea of "seek out Big Brother, He will shelter you."

A community could be infected by a rabies-like virus which could drive the victims into a state of true madness, animalistic behavior, and incessant rage. In such a case, the results would be pretty close to a "Zombie Apocalypse."
