I beg to differ. I don't know why people keep insisting on a machete or samurai sword or some shit. Think about it, with a disease that is transferable via bodily fluids, why in hell would you want to burst a sack of meat within arms reach of you? You're better off with a baseball bat.
And of course, ATGATT. Waterproof gear and facesheild down should keep you fairly bite and splatter proof.
