5. The sleeping city of Kalachi
City of Kalachi, Kazakhstan is not Disney’s creation. It is as real as it gets. Citizens of Kalachi face a very peculiar epidemic. People just collapse into naps randomly, even while walking on the road. They also report memory loss, fatigue and hallucinations. The epidemic effects people from all genders and ages. Kazakhstan has even recommended evacuations. But they are no closer to solving the problem.
One theory suggests that the residents are facing some kind of radiation poisoning since the area is near uranium mine. However there are flaws in the theory. All the blood tests and other monitoring has turned up zero evidence. Secondly, there is a town which is closer to the mine than Kalachi and they have reported no such epidemic.
