I know this article was from 7 years ago, but have things progressed at all since then, to the point where an airborne form of rabies virus might be possible now?

And by "zombie" I mean the crazed hyper-aggressive living humans, like those in "28 Days Later" and in the "I Am Legend" remake. Maybe also those affected by the "Trixie" in the 2010 remake of "The Crazies"?

Rabies virus is a slow guy. It moves slowly up the nerves and only become acute and untreatable when it hits the brain that's when you go rabid. But you only a a short time after that.

I'm sure it's been done already. Not only that, the Assistant is ticked off at the Director and the security system at the lab has lapsed and the drug gang on the corner has been watching the place.

That's a cool game scenario right there, Winston. The question is, will they be detected mid-heist and break the vials as they fight their way out of the facility.

"Marilyn Chambers?!?! Lol"

She could easily have slowed down the spread of any virus had she just cleaned up with some Ivory Snow.
