2015 Predictions: Zombie Apocalypse Virus Becomes Possible Via An Artificial Virus Bioweapon

Out of the many predictions for 2015, a zombie apocalypse virus probably seems like a bad joke considering the recent Ebola epidemic. Unfortunately, a bioweapon made using an artificial virus has recently become feasible, making the possibility of a zombie virus seem real.

In a related report by the Inquisitr, if the Ebola virus did become airborne, this feat would require genetic engineering, since evolutionary theory seems to indicate the scenario would not happen naturally.

When it comes to a real zombie apocalypse, “naturally” is the key word. Most fiction, including The Walking Dead, always seem to endow zombies with an amazing metabolic ability to survive for years at a time even as their bodies fall to pieces. A real zombie virus would likely only allow the infected to survive for days or a few weeks at the most, and unlike in the movies, a quarantine would be effective instead of forestalling the inevitable wave of the shambling undead. So that’s the good news.

The bad news is that even the Ebola virus in its current form could be used as bioweapon. While it’s not something anyone wants to consider, one of the potential 2015 predictions is that terrorists like the Islamic State may attempt to create an Ebola epidemic in the United States by drinking the virus and then purposefully spreading it far and wide. In addition, Vladimir Nikiforov, head if the Department of Infectious Diseases at the Russian Federal Medical-Biological Agency’ Institution of Advanced Training, believes the current Ebola virus could be weaponized.

“Actually, this virus can be used in the form of a spray, which can lead to very big trouble. Biological weapons are nothing like a nuclear bomb… In order to make a nuclear bomb, one would require a uranium mine, a nuclear power plant and so on, [but biological weapons] are made in a small laboratory, which can be easily camouflaged. You know that there are rogue states. And here’s the thing, I can’t guarantee that some country isn’t preparing something of the kind.”
