He didn't do that to Shane, though. He was a sitting duck with Zombie Shane coming up behind him.
If that's what the CDC guy told Rick, it doesn't make sense that he'd keep it a secret. Not telling the others would just be putting everyone in danger.
Someone could die when Rick's not there. Choking, an accident. Hershel's daughter almost killed herself. And if nobody's expecting the dead person to turn, they're screwed. Hershel has a heart attack and dies, Maggie's bawling and goes into the bathroom to wash her face. She comes out and he jumps off the bed and eats her. Thanks, Rick.
