U.S. hospitals can safely manage a patient with the zombie plague by following our recommended infection-control procedures. It’s important that we do not let fear of the undead overtake our reasoned approach to any zombie apocalypse. There is zero danger to the U.S. public from these two zombies or the zombie plague in general. People who are zombies are not walking around on the street. They are very, very dead and pretty much confined to a hospital. Zombies do not pose a significant risk to the U.S. public. Keep in mind that zombie plague is not something that is easily transmitted. That’s why, generally, outbreaks dissipate. But the key is identifying, quarantining, and isolating those who contract it and making sure practices are in place that avoid transmission, such as not biting or getting bitten by a zombie.
