In the wake of the hit HBO series, The Last of Us, truckers across the country are panicking over the potential for a fungal apocalypse. The series, which depicts a world where a mass fungal infection has led to the collapse of society, has sparked concerns among truckers that they could be unwittingly spreading dangerous fungi at truck stops and rest areas.
“Truckers are on the front lines of this thing,” said one anonymous trucker. “We’re driving all over the country, stopping at all kinds of rest areas and truck stops. We don’t know what kind of fungus or virus could be growing in those places.”
Some truckers are taking matters into their own hands, refusing to stop at certain truck stops that they believe are particularly moldy or dirty. Others are wearing masks and gloves to protect themselves from potential fungal spores.
“We’ve seen a lot of truckers walking around with respirators and hazmat suits on,” said one truck stop employee. “It’s pretty weird.”
Meanwhile, truck stop owners struggle to keep their facilities clean and mold-free. “We’ve always had to deal with mold and mildew in the bathrooms and showers,” said one owner. “But now it’s like we’re fighting a losing battle. The more we clean, the more it seems to grow.”
Despite the fears, health officials say that the chances of a fungal apocalypse are slim. “Yes, dangerous fungi out there,” said one expert. “But the chances of them causing a global pandemic are very low. Of course, truckers and the general public should take basic precautions, like washing their hands and avoiding areas with visible mold, but there’s no need to panic.”
For now, truckers continue to drive across the country, dodging potential fungal threats and hoping that The Last of Us remains a work of fiction.
