Scientists Model Spread of Zombie Apocalypse: “Just 100 Survivors Remain Uninfected After 100 Days”

Do you LOVE America?



    The future tends towards the path of greatest destruction, perhaps, because the system has been set up for such a fall.

    It has indeed been rigged to extract wealth from the body politic. The people have been squashed down economically into revolutionary masses, and as the system is cracking apart, and all the corruption is spilling over at the centers, out in the mainland, the people have become easily provoked, yet quick to follow and slow question the reality of what is going on.

    One way or another, society is being ‘shocked’ and then goaded into submission by a succession of catastrophes, terror events and dismal news stories. Only a relative few would be prepared to avoid the worst of the crisis, and outlive whatever may spread through fear and desperation.

    Unsurprisingly, it seems to be an almost-real possibility that a wave of humanity could be zombified by the creeping malaise of collapse, or an outbreak caused by biological warfare, mishaps in lab research, a mutation in vaccines or some other derivative cause of our own doing…

    Apparently, the possibility is real enough that scientists have calculated and modeled the frightening rapidity with which humanity would be culled by such a disaster. And for that matter, you could add an EMP, a massive seismic event, or even a hacking event.

    Humans have become very fragile, and vulnerable to devoured by their own kind.

    According to the Daily Mail:

    Zombies could exterminate humanity in less than six months, according to recent research.

    Researchers developed a complex new formula which calculates that 100 days into a zombie outbreak, just over 100 survivors will be left uninfected.

    And within six months, these stragglers will also die or become zombies themselves.

    Students at Leicester University … developed a mathematical model for disease that predicts how an infection will spread through a population over time. It predicts the rate at which infections spread and die off as humans come into contact with one another.

    In their model, for instance, they did not account for humans killing zombies.

    Could a global pandemic of epic proportions descend upon humanity? It seems that there are all too many scenarios where this could indeed occur, and there are clearly preparations for it.

    The CDC, Homeland Security, FEMA, the Pentagon and other agencies have all used simulated zombie outbreaks to model their emergency responses.

    Though the scenarios themselves are fictional, the plans to seize hard power via martial law is no joke:

    Military planners assigned to the U.S. Strategic Command … looked for a creative way to devise a planning document to protect citizens in the event of an attack of any kind.The officers used zombies as their muse.


    “Given the rapidity at which zombie outbreaks spread, decisive, overwhelming, and possibly unilateral military force may be required to negate the zombie threat.”

    “Given the likelihood of an all out threat to ‘human survival’, it is likely that this plan will be executed with a declaration of martial law with CONUS and U.S. territories. (source)

    Though there are a few particulars that are best left to Hollywood, the basics of preparing to survive if/when all of the population becomes a danger is solid enough to go on – and would generally apply to nearly any major crisis.

    A UK researcher found that a decent number of people are relatively prepared for basic survival and basic medical responses, but would be inadequately prepared to rebuild society after the crisis has passed – for the few who made it, as the Daily Mail notes:

    People were reasonably confident that they could handle basic first aid if disaster were to strike, with 68 per cent rating themselves as average to good, but just over half (53 per cent) thought that they had the skills to grow crops or rear animals. 

    While food, medical supplies and mobiles phones were top of the list for a survival pack…

    Professor Lewis Dartnell, a UK Space Agency research fellow based at the University of Kent, advised that a survival bag should contain: ‘a fire-starting kit, water bottle, small knife, rope and food’… only 22 per cent thought to include matches in their survival kit, while only 10 per cent would take a bottle, which could be used to disinfect water.

    ‘Clearly we shouldn’t be worrying twenty four seven about a potential apocalypse but it’s interesting to take a snap shot of where we are now and how we’d fare – individually and as a society,’ said Professor Dartnell. “People’s survival instincts are strong but without a greater focus on STEM skills, the speed at which we’d return to ‘society as we know it’ would be seriously impeded.”

    For those who manage to survive the apocalypse and wish to start re-building society, the research scientist and author says that ‘electricity, soap, charcoal, a lathe to craft things with, and glass’ are the most important things to make.

    Here’s one recommendations for the kind of weapons and equipment you may need. Remember, staying warm and covering the basics is just as important as any fighting force that you may stock up on:

    “Zombie Preppers” was even turned into a Discovery Channel episode – though it is questionable if it encourages prepping, or seeks to ridicule it once again.

    Nonetheless, it’s theme is: “Zombies are real, they’re just not what you think they are.”

    In other words, society is poised to unravel during widespread collapse and unrest, so you should be ready if you don’t want to be dragged down with them.

    The bottom line is, only a few people are going to survive a disaster this big. Are you one of them?

        I plan and have prepared for day 101 and beyond

        • Take a look inside this modern-day Noah’s Ark.

          These doomsday shelters for the 1% make up the largest private bunker community on earth

      2. Im not here to “survive”.. I’m here to party

        lets roll!

        • In a grid down situation,a solar energy system (even just a trickle charger) could charge batteries for electricity, including your vehicle battery, to power the cigarette lighter, to start a fire, even if you have no gas to run the vehicle.

          Use the trickle charger outside.

          Inside, it gets too hot and could start your vehicle on fire, contrary to what the sellers of the product say. Don’t forget to add a couple extension cords to your useful items list. 🙂

          • BTW, nice bug out kit but it wouldn’t last long. Really it is just designed to get you where you need to go. Hopefully if you decide to bug out, you have somewhere to go that is well stocked to provide for the long term.

            That bug out kit will only get you to the RED, WHITE and BLUE FEMA bus stop. Just saying. 🙁

          • I put a solar panel on my boat, keeps 2 deep cycle batteries fully charged at all times.

        • We plan to thrive and not just survive. I am determined to preserve as much of western civilization as possible and put much thought into the afterwards scenarios as well as simply living through the crisis.

          • Begin with the US Constitution, Bill of Rights, and New Testament. 🙂

            • Hear, hear, DK. They can still save us but the time grows short.

            • Lots of DIY books at Home Depot would come in handy after that. They sell seeds too !!! 🙂

              • They sure do. GMO seeds.

          • Western civilization is what got us in this mess ? And if you look around here in USSA today, we already have 250+ million zombies walking around everyday, maybe more ! Th e zombie thing is a euphamsim for the many brain dead and fat Americans who cannot do anything for themselves, much less think. It is already here in spades !

            • agreed……it’s coming. the night of the living brain-dead….BE READY.

          • Amen, Brother. Whereabouts in Idahodia are you? We’re in Meridian over here!

        • I don’t think there’ll be a zombie apocalypse, just the thought of folks not getting their happy meds, coupled with homocides/suicides, grudges etc etc is gonna be enough to deal with. Having said that, I firmly believe the only reason why the zombie shows are on is to silently communicate the most effective/ efficient way to kill. Call me crazy, I don’t care. Tptb know there’s gonna be a collapse so why not use the boob tube to show people how to carry out their plans. Remember jade helm? Who’s talkin bout it anymore? But the equipment including the huge coffins is still there. I think the coffins were always intended to be used simply to clean up the mess. This is also exactly why da gubmint never truly wanted to outlaw guns. Look what happened, gun sales skyrocketed just as planned. The government knows the only way their goals are accomplished, the masses have to be manipulated into doing it. It’s a complete mindfuck.
          Stay quiet Be smart.

          • The zombie apocalypse is what could happen if the welfare money quits going out to all those on welfare. They have made them so dependent that they would go out like a zombie herd after food, money and all of the other things.

            • Hence, the Federal mandate to States to administer and operated by county the welfare guidelines and the State administered jobs/works program that includes among other things a recruitment pool for FEMA Corps, Security Guards, and etc.

              I’d be more concerned with being placed under their security in FEMA Camps or hunted by FEMA Corps if I were you.

          • Here is the complete mind fuck that very few realize here in USSA today. This is by far the most complete expose” to date of what has really happened in this country, although it is just one of many mind fucks in the last few decades. This article is in 2 parts and is absolutely compelling reading that proves that Google and Facebook were both created by our CIA and other government agencies on taxpayer money to be used as a giant control mechanism. It also shows clearly the all of the social media and other techs are simply part of NSA !


            Most prepper types waste a lot of time and money on stupid shit and never even get close to being actually prepared for anything ? Bottom line is this, truly prepared folks are not what could be called prepper’s as they are represented today ! If you do not have good health, fitness and the correct mindset you are simply fooling yourself. And most so-called prepper types have none of the above attributes. And it is all rather easy to accomplish !

      3. Once the right virus released by the psychopaths hits the disease ridden obese toxic dump coward victims of the American Holocaust and Chemical Culling, it will tear through their now destroyed immune systems from years of vaccines, Big Pharma toxic poison, fluoridated chemical filled water, and toxic chemical poisoning of their gut bacteria from tons of GMO and EDC filled fake food horror….this ‘FINAL SOLUTION” for the on going de-population plan is a no brainer for the genocidal psychopaths controlling the criminal treasonous US Government. The drunken addicted to everything obese dumbed down disease ridden programmed indoctrinated coward Americans are ripe and ready, with compromised immune systems from years of a coordinated chemical attack on their minds, bodies, and souls!!!

        • OBOLA nearly killed US all. Fortunately there was a time limit to the infestation. In this case eight years was nearly terminal. 🙁

        • R Ahrens sounds about right. Many so-called preppers in there as well.

          • It always amazes me when I see an obese toxic dump calling themselves a “Prepper”, but I understand they have no clue what has even happened to their bodies, minds, and poor cowardly souls!!!!

      4. Will I be one of the 100,of course,George Romero has taught me well!

      5. A zombie scenario is my favorite one to prep for. I figure if one can survive that, they can survive pretty much any other scenario. I’m also a big fan of that movie genre.

      6. I have seen those other articles about nuke power plants. It doesn’t look like it matters what happens after a certain point the plants won’t be maintained and we will have meltdowns everywhere. So after the zombies eat the nuke plant employees we all get cooked. Right? So I am with enemy of the state on this one. Party. if you manage to survive, that’s a bonus. maybe.

        • You are correct. In fact, do a search on FUKushima. It’s going global and requiring 40 years to cleanup, could be an extinction level event. Over 500 large animal die offs in 2016 alone. Half the oceans biomass is gone. Why are the tide pools empty on the entire west coast? Why are the whales starving? The food chain for 1.5 billion people dependent on seafood is broken.

          Why are the insects in decline? Why are truckers reporting cleaner windshields/grills on cross country treks? It’s the little things that make a big difference. No insects, no cross pollination, no land based food supply.

          When it comes to prepping. You can stock up all you want. The biggest tool anyone has in their preps is also their greatest enemy: the mind. If you can’t get with it, you will be the first of those to die.

          Our time is up. Change your priorities. Enjoy it while it lasts. Those whom dash into bunkers will find themselves in a tomb.

          Maybe this time, the next generation of earthly survivors will get it right. Good things come in threes.

          What do I mean? Well, as a mechanical engineer consider this: You can’t cut 20 foot, 60 ton grade 7 and 8 stones to within 2 thousands of a inch with the crude bronze tools the Egyptian’s had. Think.

      7. Re-building society? What the hell for? That is the damn problem.

      8. There is a fine line between being prepared, and having the knowledge to survive even with the preps. I will give em hell before I go, parties included. That’s just how I roll…

      9. Make electricity?

        Like MWK says, there will be an ELE when the cooling ponds run out of water…

        • Three suns burn into Japan, it is happening. Water runs to the sea. It cools Pele it will cool Japan.

      10. Would you really want to survive and exist in the world that would follow. People who have been brought up in a civilized world may be able to exist in such a world, but almost none of them could really live in it.

        • i don’t know if i would want to survive….but i DO want to have that option!

      11. Make sure you have enough ammo….your going to need it.!!!

        • All you need to survive a zombie apocalypse is a few high bridges and some wind chimes. Knock down the guard rails along the bridges, and hang the wind chimes over the high drop.

          Stupid zombie movies.

      12. It is like the sign in the office that says “Those who don’t believe in the Resurrection of the Dead, should be here at quitting time!”. I guess a zombie apocalypse could do the same thing.

        A zombie apocalypse is something that I don’t worry about.

      13. Perseid Collapse. Read it. Best thing is the hero is a liberal, who ends up killing those who threaten his family. Although most preppers would have killed the bad guys a lot sooner…

      14. Not to discount the very serious issues confronting us, I wonder if the models they used were the same ones they use for the scam of faux global warming… garbage in, garbage out.

        “Terror events?” Things are only “”terror” if you have **not prepared yourself.** Not saying things would be East Street, but things are a LOT more frightening if you only have a Obama-esque “everything is rainbows and unicorns in this world,” and you are unprepared.
        A “terror event” for many of you hear simply means you pull out your concealed carry and address what you have already expected; or you go to your preparedness site or pull out your resources.

        “Terror” is for the unprepared, and for those (usually snowflake leftists and Learjet liberals)who expect the easy life. Moreover, the death rate for all humans is 100%. Were people expecting to live forever?

        Fear? Jesus said in Luke 12:5 “But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him!”

      15. Really you haven’t learned this is more fake news to stampede the masses into FEMA slave camps. Big Pharma is the biggest threat at the moment.

      16. Yes, there are coming some difficult times in the near future; and it will take strong willed people of faith to survive. There will be survivors. Ec.1:4 A generation is going and a generation is coming, but the earth is standing even to time indefinite. Psalms 104:5 He has founded the earth upon its established places; It will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever. Matthew 24:22 In fact unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short. Isaiah 55:11 So my word that goes forth from my mouth will prove to be. It will not return to me without results, but it will certainly do that in which I have delighted, and it will have certain success in that for which I have sent it. Hebrews 6:18 so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for GOD to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. No matter what catastrophe happens it will not destroy the earth or it people. This earth was made for a purpose, and that purpose will be fulfilled. The most evil are not as powerful as Jehovah God. Satan, you and your evil children have only a short time left before total destruction.

        • Yea baby!

      17. Naturally, people who consider themselves to possessing ‘divine right to rule’ or consider themselves ‘intellectually-physically superior to others’ who acquire positions of power will ultimately discourage the lie that people are quite capable of individuality that runs against control freaks delusions of grandeur.

        This is why people who seek to maintain independence/self-reliance are demonized as per say Preppers, and they exaggerate threats to justify establishing public-private mergers’ power-structure hierarchy.
        What else is new? Even globalist’s studies promoting Gandhi’s civil disobedience movement omits that Gandhi’s movement occurred as Palestinian Jews took their MI6 training against the British occupation of Israel after once again reneging on establishing a sovereign Israel, or the fact Britain’s replenishment forces enroute for India with battle hardened WWII vets to squash India’s Sovereignty Movement once and for all was intercepted and stood off by none other than the US making Gandhi’s Civil Disobedience movement successful against a ‘skeletal British occupation force’.
        Kinda hard to squash a movement with around 80% of the occupation force reallocated to fight World War II leaving a mere 20% of the total force before the war particularly when imprisoning Gandhi led to the movement shifting under violent Revolution regency.

      18. New year some old threats…..

      19. That article was a break from reality for just a second or to until you start thinking about it. The Zombies are already here. TFSA (the free shit army) the nice thing about is you don’t have to make head shots all the time, and they are not prepared. The bad things are they can think, communicate, and run.

        What I’m writing below is just for fun, or is it????

        WTSHTF they will come out of the wood work like there is no tomorrow.

        So again have a good Long range rifle. Close range rifle, Good shotgun, Good handgun something large bore (like 44 mag, 45 ACP), of your choice. and always have a good 22 rifle and handgun.

        For the rifle I like 308(#1) 300 Win Mag, 30-06, 8MM 7MM 7MM Mag. 7.62x54R. Close range I like 30 Carbine, 223, 6.8mm 7.62×39. For handguns 45 ACP, 44 MAG 357 Mag, 40, 9MM, 7.62×25 in that order. I like my 12GA. shotgun. Now for the 22’s. Oh yes the little 22, I like something Mag fed. like the 10/22 or some of the new AR 22’s, and for the 22 handgun I like the Ruger Mrk. 1,2,3, This my choice. I just got a new GSG/SIG and I’m liking it a lot. This is one way to stop a Zombie attack. Now make sure you have a good heavy knife, sword, machete heavy combat knife. This will help at close range. Silence is golden. Crossbow, Recurve, Compound bows will come in handy. Last but not least and it make noise is exploding targets.

        Just don’t for get all the other stuff you will need for day 101.


        • I’d more likely keep my head down for anything over 150 yards out. Zombies will learn that someone is around and that is not good. An earlier article mentioned night vision, drones, etc. I like those things, along with anything that can funnel inbound Zombies into shooting zones.

          • “N.M.”
            Exploding targets. have one to draw them and another to blow them away.

        • Sgt. Dale,
          Good advice.

          A crazy world is a zombie world.

          In some cases we may need to crawl just in a hole, eat worms, survive and resurface.

      20. Oh for shit’s sake……I guess this article was just for fun.

        • PO’d Patriot,
          Sci-fi is often tomorrow’s reality.

          As silly as zombies sounds, both US, Russian and other governments have experimented with weaponized rabies viruses. Modify the virus to make the insanity last months or years, and the infection rate of a bite near a 100%

          All sides have it, we just need one nut to release it!

      21. In the zombie apocalypse. 22shorts won’t be ringing the zombies dinner bell. Amongst other quiet critter gitters. SGT mentioned a few of them.

      22. Many think this is just a joke . But read up on. Super staff. Total penicillin resistant. Unstoppable . Every Doctor knows that these viruses are becoming more resistant every day. Expecialy AIDS . These drug cocktails that are keeping these people alive have to be constantly changed because AIDs is adapting. Getting stronger more resistant until it eventually goes airborne, then look out. It is only a matter of time. And people will curse God blaming him for what he warned us of. Remember soddom and Gomorrah . Burn out the unstoppable virus? Created because of their
        lifestyle? I wonder if the bible included every detail . It would be 1000 volumes or more long?

        • “Idiocracy” has become a documentary. The zombies are all around us. To enrage them, just kill the WIFI.

      23. Really? REALLY.?? This is what you got this evening, Mac?

      24. Only one hundred people left alive, the rest will be zombies? A person needs to make the best of every situation and I believe that in such a vast number of zombies there are some that can be trained. We will be limited only by our own imagination. This means cheap zombie labor to pull my plows for farming and a sled for transportation. A farmer would never run out of hog feed either with that many zombies. If you put a few zombies on a tread mill wheel powering a electric generator you would have lights from now on. Think about it folks, no unions, government regulations or red tape.

      25. Any comments about the Dr. Strangeloves that are psychopathic enough to weaponize a rabies like virus to create zombies. I say ” may they partake the fruits of their diabolical labors” ? Then again, there are most likely another level of psycho handlers above them.

      26. Zombies:


        The evil people planning this future want to kill 90%. They want to relieve themselves of the slightest responsibility for planning, coordinating, and implementing said plan.

        Shoot for the head. That is a strong subliminal message. Although it comes to you in a fantastical manner, these masters of manipulation have spent billions researching what works and what doesn’t. They successfully got us to buy crappy stuff, made in a foreign Country by people who feel indifferent toward us at best, while our families struggle with student debt, under employment, and job insecurity, if not out right poverty.

        How did they do that?

        By finding out what makes us tick. Then playing to our emotions. Voila, we’re hooked-like fish.


      27. I don’t know if anybody has been paying attention lately, but judging by the brain dead morons all around me, its only a matter of time until they step across that final threshold and being their attack. If you cannot see their legion around you, you are one of them. Its just a matter of time until they get it in their minds that the last artificial leash that holds them back (a still intact fear of an actual “justice system” that COULD make their lives difficult for them) is broken and they go on their lawless rampage they WANT to go on. All you have to do is watch people around you and LISTEN to them. They all but say it plainly.

      28. “In their model, for instance, they did not account for humans killing zombies.”

        Which renders this “modeling” absolutely USELESS. These equally useless fux are Grade A #1 PRIME sitting-duck TARGET PRACTICE. But hey, this “study” originated @ Leicester, UK, which explains it ALL…..

      29. How to keep a mob of hungry zombies from charging?
        Revoke or disable their EBT cards.

      30. Bugout bag without gas mask is a blind spot. What is resistant to cell towers? Emf, elf I can’t remember the other possible weapons coming from them right now. Swat shows up at 3am and you are prepared,night vision would be heavenly. End up in fema. camp for a couple of meals would put us as potential zombies. Crankup the juice on your smartmeter and our local tower what happens. Something is making everyone lethargic. Hearing loss and failing vision seems to be picking up speed. When dogs cats rats and livestock are gone then what? The creeks looked dismal a year ago. Gene structuring , sterilization , and 90% of American corn and beans has done what to animal populations. Roadkills seem to be declining significantly. When famine hits cannibalism shows up and traveling marauders start hunting. Do things look bleak to me? No. This life is but a blinking of the eye, then we get our wings. I am still ticked I didn’t get any tracers then exploding targets abound. Educate snowflakes now cuz time is getting shorter every day and we will need all the help we can get and I would rather not have to slap one later when trouble comes. What if they seen a gun. *Harry finds lots in bathroom* after sea bass Not pretty. How about running around in circles as flailing hollering gun!! I read the other day what a cowboy carried on a horse-very interesting. Typing on cellphone stinx . Keep your swords sharp and powder dry,n watch yur topknot.

      31. I so need to add a ninja samurai sword and a Hi-point carbine to my kit. I feel left out…..
