Ok, so say the infection were to be caused by a virus...
Virus is a Latin word, meaning toxin or poison. A virus is a small infectious agent that can replicate only inside the cells of other organisms.
This being said, a virus can only reproduce inside the cells of other living organisms. This would have to mean that the cells in the bodies of the Zombies, are still alive, meaning that the Zombies are alive, not dead!
In order for the blood cells to remain alive, blood would have to be circulated through the body, as in a living human being. However, Zombies are typically depicted as thoughtless, dumb, slow, corpses with huge gashes and chunks of flesh missing. So how can they still move and function, even if it is only by instinct?
Do you find this valuable?
