Zombies would most likely wipe out humanity?

I think not, but apparently some dorky, desk humping, pencil pushing nerds got out their calculators (they better learn to us an abacus for when the Zombie Apocalypse does actually happen) and decided they were going to see what would happen for the big ZA. Below is the article and here’s the link to it. There is a glaring error in it.. there is NO cure for the Zombie Apocalypse… We are the cure. But the emphasis added below is the only thing “The Team” saw when I showed this to them at this morning’s briefing. You can buy the book it’s featured in here. Here’s some snippets but go over to the full article and give it a read…

Civilization would most likely be finished in the event of a zombie outbreak, claim Canadian mathematicians who have calculated the possible devastation caused by an attack by the fictional monsters.

In their study, titled When Zombies Attack!, the researchers picked “classic” slow-moving zombies such as those in Dawn of the Dead as models and divided humanity into three: the living, zombies and the “removed” – zombies who had been killed by decapitation.

They concluded there was no point trying to cure those infected or live with them – the best thing was to destroy them as quickly as possible.

“As seen in the movies, it is imperative that zombies are dealt with quickly, or else we are all in a great deal of trouble. Only sufficiently frequent attacks, with increasing force, will result in eradication, assuming the available resources can be mustered in time,” they concluded.

How fast do we need to deal with the outbreak? Here’s the equation they used, where S = susceptibles, Z = zombies and R = removed. If an infection breaks out in a city of 500,000 people, the zombies will outnumber the susceptibles in about three days.
