The persons and events in this work are fictional. I don't know if you'd exactly call this a story. It's just something I wrote one day after watching George Romero's "Dawn of the Dead" too many times. The science is all pseudo-science, though I did try to background myself before I took a stab at this. The 'viroids' mentioned in the story are quite real; they're thought to be the culprits behind mad cow (Creutzfeldt-Jakob) disease. If you can think of anything for me to do with it, I'd be happy to hear from you. If you surfed in from the Homepage of the Dead, welcome! Check out some of my other stories. If you're interested in viruses and virology for real and don't want to sound like an idiot when lecturing your friends, I highly recommend The Big Picture Book of Viruses.

Centers for Disease Control -------------------------------The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is a federal agency that is a part of the United States Public Health Service. It was originally established (1946) as the Communicable Disease Center and acquired its present title in 1970. Its headquarters and main laboratories are in Atlanta, GA.
The purpose of this document is to provide a final, comprehensive study of the contributing factors and epidemiology of the Alomal-137 (A-137) pandemic.

This is the A-137HN cell. This report is not a definitive version of the history of this epidemic. we cannot accept refugees at our location. The 100 remaining cells are somehow 'captivated' by A-137HN. reproducing themselves by a seemingly morphologically impossible form of cellular meiosis. indicating probable subduction of those enzymes. The end result is these 'activated' A-137HP cells accrete and interact in the lymph nodes with dead cells and various immunilogical components such as phagocytes. based on direct analysis by CDC #201G and information transmitted by other operational CDC.gov. and CDCGuam).

The reproduction rate is extremely high. they multiply both in the dying tissue and in the lymphatic system. Culture samples predict A-137HP cellular assimilation in an average-sized human seems to be complete in less than 27 hours. This was due both to the unremittingly fatal nature of exposure to A-137HN (by biting from an infected individual) and the edema and suppuration always found at the location of these bites. . but the multiplication of A137HP is extremely rapid and almost completely undetectable without detailed clinical enzymological analysis. typically subsiding after 2-4 hours and not inducing significant distress in the subjects. A-137 manifests in a two-stage form affecting humans: A-137 Human Positive (A-137HP) A-137 Human Positive (A-137HP) is a gram-positive. where A-137HN repeats the process of accumulation and consuming of dead cells.

Rare subjects (5-10% of the population) are capable of using tools. The only realistic way of accomplishing deactivation of a subject is to destroy the brain or sever the brain from the rest of the body. They walk with a random. the feeding behavior of the affected subject. Restrained A-137HN subjects show a limited ability to respond to motor commands and demonstrate some degree of object permanence. Reanimated individuals share one universal trait.

A-137HN causes the bodies of the recent somatically dead to return to a form of activity which includes muscular. Why the feeding is so limited. during which time all blood products and secretions from the individual are extremely infectious. However. They will literally freeze solid at sustained temperatures of 0°C however. as high concentrations of A-137HP already exist in the above mentioned areas (particularly the brain and specifically the cerebellum) and quickly transform to A-137HN. However. They are able to detect and track 'living' humans across open ground at ranges claimed to be as great as one-half mile (approximately 804 meters). Physiological studies have shown that A-137HN consumes the captivated cells faster than they can reproduce. Cognitively.

This can be attributed to the deposition of A-137HN cells in vital areas of the cerebellum (see Figure 1) as well as the endocrine system. time between death and reactivation is 8-12 minutes. as well as intracranial pressure and CNS fluid circulation per a normal human subject. followed closely by somatic death and subsequent reactivation. A-137HN subjects cannot be deactivated by any of the following means: ¡ Poison. although the difficulty of working in close proximity with A-137HN subjects impedes the interview process.) without any communication of any form. To destroy the area of the brain responsible for reanimation. These areas of the formerly dead individuals are essential to A-137HN function and propagation. Testing at CDC-Anchorage and other locations have shown parallel results. they cannot seem to recall how to reload those firearms or close a door they have just opened. explosives.

Area of high population density. contagious outbreak seems to have occurred immediately prior to or during a tour of the PARF facility by a delegation from the World Health Organization in that same timeframe. The population density of New York City in particular and the US Eastern Seaboard in general meant that A-137HP was passed back and forth between literally millions of people in the weeks between 2/19 and 4/7/97. A137HN Viral Slide. adding a vector. This development was part of a program to create a viral 'bus' which could deliver an entire sequence of crippled viral cores to a patient. 1997. most of which were held in large open-air auditoriums. and polymutation with the segmented nucleus of the influenza virus increased the flexibility. Furthermore. Cross-hybridization.com/johnian/rant_cds/rant_pages/scripts-fiction/Alomal_137/alomal. Re-integration of that cross-hybridized strain with the human-attenuated strain already spreading pandemically among the human population caused the inevitable result. 1997. Finally at approximately 11:30 PM. all having died of severe head trauma. Opportunity for infection and re-infection. the reintroduction of A-137HP with a mild "Hong Kong" influenza-A epidemic started a new infection wave in the human population.Figure 3. cross-hybridization with forms of influenza-A and B strains was inexorable. Additionally.htm In the hours that followed. Their operation was conducted due to the large numbers (approximately 1500) of A-137HN subjects found near the site. There were 1600 scientists and unknown numbers of support personnel. Mexican Yucatan Peninsula. From the documentation reviewed by CDC. killing all 38 persons aboard.

A Greyhound bus crashed into a ravine on Interstate 20 just outside of that town earlier in the day. The 21 persons not at the scene are assumed to be the first A-137HN subjects. The end result of this research path was a preliminary (non-human certified) panimmunic termed Panacea-8 (for the number of contagions it was to inoculate the patient against). Georgia. 2. April 6th. Fish feeding on the bodies of those victims ingested the proto-viroidal. EPIDEMIOLOGY The term 'Alomal-137' was applied to the phenomenon in May 1997 by the CDC central office in Atlanta. delegates returned to the United Nations building in New York City. Viral Genesis Investigation by several US Government cross-functional teams indicates that the pre-mutated form of A-137 originated at the Peregrine Arbovirus Research Facility (PARF) in Jefferson City. as postulated by Dr. Richard Shope of the Rockefeller Institute of Comparative Pathology: 1. squirrels and almost all other rodents with the exception of the weasel) have shown similar traits of revivification following somatic death. interacted with hundreds of international representatives and spread the infection among all of them. literally. indicated that 17 bodies had been found on the bus.

It is assumed that PARF was keeping large numbers of A-137HN population on its grounds prior to and after the initial outbreak. Methodology of A-137HN development is unknown. also started core infections in their host populations. when the bus was discovered 4 hours later. This vector is also a likely explanation of why other species of mammal (including. From that location. pigs. They had wandered away in search of food. A-137HN's anaerobic nature and close resemblance to human-attenuated vacilla ensured it would spread quickly and completely once introduced into a human host. the crash of Flight 227 and the subsequent introduction of A-137 bearing human cells into the ichthyoid and avian food chain. with 137 being the culture serial number of the sample in which the viral cells were first identified. The viroid inserted itself into the protein sheath of the influenza virii.

CDC computer models shown in Figure 6 indicate that propagation waves. which then returned to the United States via the Mississippi. The United Nations International Infectious Disease Symposium was an ideal place for the A-137 viroid to gain an initial human acclimation. Alomal is an almagam of 'Alpha-Omega-Alpha'. the population had never been exposed to anything even remotely similar. but salvaged documentation provided by the Cole County Sheriff's Department indicates experimentation with recombinant segmented viroids to cause post-infection formation of a vaccinia (smallpox) virus. Propagation and Mutation Large-scale infection was assured when a chartered 737 aircraft bound for the Antilles with 105 passengers. The A137HN cell is the dark circle in the center. whether by bite or A-137HP transformation. PARF was destroyed on May 11th. the asymptomatic nature of the infection resulted in no unusual outbreak of illness. Police reports from the scene.

Journalists. as they typically immediately move off to attack new prey). he reported a small group of people walking through the forest towards him. although seemingly without intelligence or cognitive ability. specifically a series of horror films which featured a threat quite similar to the A-137HN population. In the hours that followed. the group fell upon the car. were the major contributive factor to provisions in the Helms Act which required burning of the dead and also required all hospital. Humans consumed by A-137HN population generally lose only about 5-10% of their body mass. smashed the windows. This knowledge took several days to realize and several weeks to become widely known. The Georgia State Patrol lost 50% of its field officers in the first three weeks of the pandemic. Concerted attacks on responding emergency personnel or fleeing civilians are a common story. nurses and police officers were most frequently attacked. official policy changed to that of ordering the public to enter 'rescue stations'. GSP was unable to locate those persons after arrival on the scene. It is not known if the attack procedure ends because the attackers are satiated (which seems unlikely. Even then. firefighters. the Beantown Sweep in Boston. which were (until 4/17/97) confined to the continental United States east of the Mississippi River. With the small amount of tissue lost. Reanimated humans. medicine and protection by armed local. There were many stories in the first weeks of the pandemic about A-137HN individuals being shot several times (especially in inner-city neighborhoods. initial entry into PARF. extremities and renal system (see Figure 4) during the attack. The first GSP cruiser and ambulance unit which responded to the area were not heard from again.especially in groups of 10-50. contributed greatly to the A-137HN population. ill-equipped. which were buildings commandeered by FEMA and the Red Cross. but less spectacular incidents on 6 Apr 1997) incident demonstrates three aspects of A-137HN which held up in the spread of the infection: l l Law enforcement and medical personnel bore the highest casualty rates during the breakout stage of the infection. hauled the elderly man outside and consumed him. the consumed body is usually intact enough to be mobile when it revives. a elderly man whose car had developed a flat tire on Highway 20 12 miles west of Greensboro used his cellular phone to call AAA. how they organize such attacks is unknown. morgue and corpse disposal workers to carry sidearms. the Georgia State Patrol responded to 25 calls from motorists who reported seeing 'dazed' persons wandering on Interstate 20 and its associated county roads. The initial series of reports. especially in high-density. The 21 persons not at the scene are assumed to be the first A-137HN subjects. injuring by bite six GSP officers and several paramedics. there was a short-term panic among the population that the reanimated individuals were completely unstoppable.

Federal attempts at forced relocation. all having died of severe head trauma. or whether they simply reflexively cease their attack after a certain period. allowing for a larger spread of the infection. See Figure 5 for detailed descriptions.htm Page 6 / 11 . shelter. typically from the intestines. contributed greatly to propagation of A-137HN during April and May 1997. outside of airstrikes. A human which has been consumed typically transitions to A-137HN in eight to twelve minutes. as the motorists would drive on to the first location with a pay telephone. New York l Evans City. the public was generally suspicious of rescue stations and very suspicious of the Army in the wake of events like the Roanoke Massacre (see below) and public support for the stations was nonexistent. Such unexpected reanimations.mercy-limited. they reported that the two troopers in the first car. long-term pandemic). it is suspected by this office that there were many other similar. the highly mobile and adaptable A-137HN cells were sometimes able to reconfigure themselves inside the surviving brain tissue and 'restart' an apparently destroyed individual 1-3 hours after brain injury. There have been no documented cases of A-137HN population consumption of any region of the human brain or spinal cord. when the Army took over administration of rescue stations. underdefended rescue stations (along with battles between looter gangs roaming deserted neighborhoods). army reservists and vehicle operators were also decimated. indicated that 17 bodies had been found on the bus. a large amount of damage had to be inflicted on a specific area to destroy A-137HN subjects. which usually lasts only 5-10 minutes.g. After 10 April 1997 (when a secret United Nations Security Council emergency conference concluded that this was an international. The service operator advised him to stay in the car and lock his doors. The chaos that resulted from a general public rush to poorlysituated. This enabled A-137HN attacks to occur on individual persons and families. nonetheless have a capacity to act in concert . where automatic weapons combined with the close quarters of dense housing) and continuing to attack without seeming to notice. seemed to have four distinct centers with subsequent reports spreading out and overlapping from those areas: l Greensboro. The entire event was clearly recorded on the AAA monitoring tape. As he spoke on the phone to the service operator (such calls are routinely monitored). Before he could do that. before that. By June. After this time. Since the A-137HN population seems incapable of communication. those films depicted any sort of damage to the head area as destroying the reanimated individual: in reality. artillery barrages or (as was concluded in the Helms Act) nuclear bombardment. The only way to neutralize a reanimated human is by destroying the brain or severing the brain from the rest of the body (specifically the brain stem area indicated in Figure 1). as they were most often in direct contact with the A-137HN population. another factor contributing to the rise in background death rate. Georgia Albion. High numbers of firearms in the United States meant that the most popular method for private individuals to defend themselves against A-137HN population was by gunshot wounding. or if the revived population has not fed for some time (e. reanimated individuals were seen as 'unstoppable' (explained in next paragraph). Exceptions to this seem to be in the cases of large numbers of A-137HN population and few somatically alive humans. was to order persons to stay in their homes while the facts were determined.
