Probably might be some methane or other substance/material that the meteorite struck in the earth. When they had an earthquake in Central Coast California, it was near some hot springs; methane gas was release into the air.

We must go down there and stop the zombie revolution before it starts.

BTW, my favorite comment from the story:


None of the meteorites that fall in Peru and make perforations of varied sizes are harmful for people, unless they fall on a house

Is the country meteorite central or something?

Apparently there was arsenic in the groundwater that vaporized with the impact and that was the cause of the sicknesses.

One drop of that could turn you all into hermit crabs.
