Most people should remember from elementary school how we were supposed to create a fire escape plan for our house and practise it with our families, but what about other equally dangerous and deadly situations? I always found my school lacking in it’s zombie plague contingency plans; luckily we now have a better idea of a plan of action. Four students from Carleton and University of Ottawa have run different outbreak and response models (PDF) for zombie infection. Unfortunately, the news is not great. Only one scenario works in favour of non-zombies, that of a strike hard and strike often approach. Even at that, the authors are not entirely convinced the plan would be successful, especially as coordinating attacks during a time of turmoil would be very difficult. So remember to be on the lookout for zombies at all times, as the earlier the infection is caught, the more likely the human race may survive.
