Disease The CDC Don’t Recognise

A significant amount of zombie stories – films, books, games, whatever – begin with a slowly creeping sense that something is wrong. News reports of an infectious disease nobody has ever seen before, most frequently accompanied by a member of the US Centre for Disease Control talking about how they’ve never seen anything like it.

That is happening right now. Sort of. The CDC have gone on record saying that they don’t know whether a condition called Morgellons Disease, which results in painful sores appearing all over the sufferer’s body, represents a new disease, whether it’s contagious, and categorised it as an “Unexplained Dermopathy”.
