In the US and Canada, there was an infection that could destroy all of humanity. As journalists found out, virus-killer, or zombie virus, is rapidly spreading and turning its victims into living dead.
The main actors in this situation were deer, which carry a deadly virus. Recent laboratory studies of the American scientists shock: the disease can be transmitted to anthropoid apes, which means that a potential target can be a person. Chronic debilitating disease causes the death of brain cells.
According to the publications, even in the late 60-ies of the twentieth century in Colorado were seen herds of deer wandering through the forest in complete prostration. Unhealthy thinness, specific gait, glazed look, sudden outbursts of aggression – all animals had the same symptoms.
Since then, slowly, but surely the disease has spread across the States. Epidemiologists ask lovers of exotic cuisine to exclude venison from their menu.
A variation of this mutant protein in the mid-80s in the UK provoked an epidemic of mad cow disease. Then, hundreds of people died. Today, scientists are afraid of the repetition of that nightmare, but already on a global scale.
At the moment in the affected area are 22 American states and two provinces of Canada. The virus somehow got to Norway and even South Korea. So, the epidemic can begin on a global scale.
