Article title

Do not let the dead bite! Different scenarios of the zombie epidemic reexamined

Title variants
Languages of publication
The Zombie Epidemic is a fun framework for investigating different scenarios of spreading disease. An extended Kermack – McKendrick model is analyzed. The only thing that can save humanity is to not get bitten or to find a remedy for the ”zombie virus” (both almost impossible).
