Ok so The Last Of Us centres around a deadly infection caused by funghi known as the Cordyseps. These real world parasites can be found in nature and what's most terrifying about the Last Of Us is that there is basis in science for something like this to happen.

Episode 1 of the HBO show opens with a scientist theorising the rise of them all the way back in the 60s and like he says, there's no cure.

But where did the infection originate from and how did it spread so quickly?

Well throughout this video we're gonna be breaking down everything we know about how it began and the theories about how it spread so quickly. If you enjoy the video then please hit the thumbs up button and don't forget to subscribe for videos like this every day. With that out the way, thanks for clicking this, now let's get into The Last Of Us.

Now when looking at where it all started I think that the first place to go to is the game. The playstation classic doesn't give us too much of a backstory on where it originated from but there are teases found in documents. When looking through newspapers we come across the Texas Herald which reported on the infection. On September 26th it reported that admittance at hospitals was up 300% due to the infection.

The FDA also released a statement about contaminated crops and that massive recalls were expected. This of couse didn't happen but the statement did give us a clue about what was happening. It said:

So there are clues that it's coming from countries with a hotter climate. This was teased at in the initial science report at the start and 2003 is listed as being one of the hottest years on record.

Now though it's not in South America, we do hear a report in episode 1 that there is something strange going on in Jakarta. This indonesian city is located in Asia and they might have changed this from South America for us to explore it in a later episode. During filming of the show people from Jakarta posted that things were being filmed in the city so we could possibly see this coming down the line at some point.
