Suppose a Zombie Apocalypse really happened. Do you think you’d survive? Here are the Top 10 Signs of a Zombie Apocalypse – The 10 Deadliest Virus That will end the Human Race.
Zombie Apocalypse: 10 Deadliest Zombie Viruses:
A team of researchers at the University of Leicester published a paper on Zombie Apocalypse – highlighting the possibility of the spread of infectious virus and diseases to people through the contact of already infectious people.
Based on their model called SIR (Susceptible, Infected and Recovered or Removed) that is often used to model the spread of infectious diseases throughout a population. They adapted SIR to model a zombie apocalypse.
They assumed that there is a 90% probability that an uninfected person who met a zombie would be infected with the deadliest viruses and eventually will be killed – if they are not fed after 20 days.
The Virus and Disease that will turn normal Humans into Zombie are going to come. Scary as it seems, our culture is full of tales of the undead walking the Earth, from our religions to our comic books.
But, some sort of zombie apocalypse isn’t actually possible, right?
Here at Toptenia.com, we are informing you about the Top 10 deadliest Virus that is a sign of a Zombie Apocalypse is coming. These viruses have the power and capability to destroy the Human race, so watch out for these 10 Viruses – as it might turn you into a Zombie.
10. Mad Zombie Disease
The disease which caused people, upon receiving a bite from one of the infected, to become zombies. The disease is a mutation of Mad Cow Disease, which became Mad Human Disease, and then mutated to form Mad Zombie Disease.
A (presumably viral) disease of unknown origin. When a human is infected by it, the disease will infect all cells, eventually resulting in the clinical death of the host. The symptoms that occur before the victim’s clinical death, include fever, headache, fatigue, confusion, hallucinations, and paralysis.
The disease has a very short incubation period of around 16 hours. After the victim’s clinical death, the host will be revitalized and will wake up exhibiting zombie-like behavior.
However, the disease will only activate lower brain function, mostly those controlled by the brainstem, where feeding and motor functions are controlled. The host becomes a violent mindless cannibal and can infect other people by biting. The disease leads to society’s collapse and results in a world stricken by a zombie apocalypse.
8. Real Rage Virus
The Rage Virus is spread through the blood and saliva and is highly contagious to the point that just one drop of infected fluid is enough to infect a host. The Virus is typically transmitted through bites by the Infected, but can also spread through saliva exchange. Other ways Rage can infect a host include an Infected spewing infected blood in a host’s face, or so much as one drop of infected blood getting in a host’s eyes or mouth.
A bacillus (rod-shaped) bacterium that causes photosensitivity, hysterical blindness near mirrors, overdevelopment of canine teeth, and production of a bulletproof adhesive. Victims feed on blood. While in the body, it is anaerobic and causes the victim to exhibit zombie-like behavior.
6. Sith Lord Darth Drear
A virus artificially created by the Sith Lord Darth Drear thousands of years ago in order to achieve immortality. Centuries later, Darth Scabrous successfully completed Drear’s unfinished work but accidentally modified it into a semi-sentient hive mind that creates zombies.
5. The Flare Virus
A highly contagious virus that infects the brain of its host, turning them into crazed blood-thirsty cannibals (essentially into zombies) which are called Cranks. Less than 1% of the population is immune to the virus, and are called Munies.
There is no cure for The Flare, but many wealthy people slow down the onslaught of the symptoms with an illegal drug called The Bliss, which slows down their brain activity.
4. Kellis-Amberlee Virus
A spontaneous combination of two man-made viruses that exist in a ‘reservoir condition’ state without ill effects until the host’s death, when any host over approximately 40 pounds undergoes virus amplification and becomes a zombie.
3. Life-Eater Virus
The Life-eater virus is a form of necrotizing fasciitis that causes all biological matter to break down into its component parts, releasing toxic, flammable gas that can be ignited with a single explosion. The virus eats itself when there is nothing else to attack.
It is quite effective against Tyrranids. In the short-story anthology Planetkill, an updated strain goes after the soul, turning the population into zombies, created by a Techpriest inhabited by a daemonic Unclean One.
2. Romero Strain Disease
A disease created by Doctor Richard France using the human CCR5 delta 32 receptor gene and Spotted Owl DNA. Originally intended as a “rage” type bio-weapon, it instead caused a zombie apocalypse, which infected most of the world’s population, except for those who already had the CCR5 gene.
The disease also spawned several mutant human species: transmutes, who have owl traits and are passive unless provoked and half-mutes, who are extremely aggressive with traits more like zombies.
1. Solanum Virus
A virus which has existed since the beginning of human history, which is highly contagious through bodily fluids such as blood. Solanum symptoms include dementia, paralysis in the extremities, and discoloration of the wound, which increase as the virus replicates itself.
The virus is centered on the brain, and destroys the cells of the brain and replaces them with the virus. In doing so, the infected victims are declared clinically dead. The virus takes around sixteen hours to replicate, although it varies from individual to individual. Once Solanum has fully replicated, the victim awakes from the coma, with an unquenchable desire for human flesh.
The victim also exhibits typical zombie-like behavior such as psychotic behavior and mindless rage, and can only be killed by the destruction of the brain.
