The Walking Dead Shows How Fast This New Strain of Virus Can Spread
In The Walking Dead season four premiere we found out that the survivors have more to worry about then the walkers. Now they have a deadly virus that appears to be airborne and appears as the flu. When Carl’s friend Patrick ended up with the flu we discovered how deadly the virus becomes once it combines with the zombie strain. Now, not only is the virus contagious to humans, but to other mammals as well. Tonight’s episode of the walking dead shows how fast this new strain of the virus can spread and decimate a population.
