My Variant of the end times.....
Although I agree with you there on many points,I believe society would not crumble as easily as you say.I reckon,if the Military/LE/Security forces become ruthless in their quest to stop the virus(i.e destroying densely infected areas with say,nuclear weapons or heavy bombardment) then they might still survive in a slightly diminished manner.
They could quarantine or abandon entire states/provinces/cities depending on the situation.They could either hole up in bastions of civilization or hole up the zees.
Small groups of vigilanties,raiders and thugs would thrive in the infected areas.

...And then what?
I like what you've done so far, I do agree that this is what would happen Pre-zed day. But what happens next? I was kind of hoping for some timeline of what happens after it, and as far as I can tell all you really explain is what would happen before the day (which really is just if not more questionable than what will happen after).
Prehaps make points on say - One week after?
-One month (28 days later)?
Just what I think :)

Expanding on World War Z
I once read a fan-fiction that deeply expanded on Command and Conquer : Red alert, filling in political and historical details about the story. I was thinking that something similiar could be done with WWZ as you have a worldwide event, profound consequence everywhere and some unanswered question
I was thinking of making a text main text that mostly cover the events (would go in Post-War year) and then later installement cover would expand on charathers (probably real life figure, affected one way or another by the war) and organisations involved
I had started something last summer (send me a message and i'll send it to you) but it was let say a draft who only covered the start, but now I want to finish it
Ok first thing My timeline is base around that World War Z is not taking place in the future, but take place in a world that has alternate history (however its very close our) here how I have ordered the events (its mostly american centric sorry at the moment)
2008-Taiwan Strait Crisis (Patient zero either before or after that, but its before South Africa)
2010 Early part of the year
2011 Spring: Great Panic- Phalanx Revealed as fraud- Great Panic
-First Hard Winter 11 million death in North America
2012 Election Powell/Dean Won
2015 Start of the Road to New York
2016 Election Powell second term
2018 Death of Powell Victory in America Day
2020 Victory in China Day
2030 WWZ is Published
(will post a list of my isssues and Speculation later, Logistic and Geography are probably the biggest concern)
