What is a Zombie Virus?

Most people think of a zombie virus as something from one of their favorite zombie movies or books. But what is a zombie virus and how does it work? In this article, we will explore what a zombie virus is and some of the most common ways that a zombie virus can be contracted.

Definition of a Zombie Virus

A zombie virus can be defined as a fictional infectious virus that is capable of transforming humans or other living beings into zombies. Zombies are undead human-like creatures with little or no free will who exist only to feed upon the flesh of the living.

How Does a Zombie Virus Work?

The exact mechanisms of a zombie virus are not known. However, it is believed that a zombie virus transforms living beings into the undead by infecting them with a virus or mutating their DNA in some way.

In some zombie media, the virus is spread through bites from zombie creatures (like in The Walking Dead). In other zombie media, the virus is spread through the air, like a regular flu (like in 28 Days Later).

Common Ways to Contract a Zombie Virus

The most common way to contract a zombie virus is through direct contact with the virus, for example through a bite or scratch from a zombie. A person can also become infected by coming into contact with an item that has been contaminated with the virus, such a contaminated water source.

In addition to contact with the virus, some zombie viruses can be spread through the air and inhaled by a person. This type of airborne zombie virus is particularly dangerous as it can quickly spread to a large number of people.

Effects of a Zombie Virus

When a person is infected with a zombie virus, it causes a set of physical and psychological changes to the person’s body. The most common symptoms of a zombie virus infection include:

• Skin is discolored and may appear to be peeling
• Increased aggression
• Loss of free will
• Increased hunger
• Weakness and loss of motor skills

These symptoms can vary from zombie virus to zombie virus but are generally the same across all variants.

Curing a Zombie Virus

It is currently unknown if there is a cure for a zombie virus. In many zombie media, such as the zombie movie genre, there are no known cures for a zombie virus. However, there are some zombie media, such as The Walking Dead, where certain characters are eventually cured of their zombie virus infection.
