Questions Answered: Is a Zombie Virus Outbreak Possible?

Lisa Mason Lee - May 31, 2012

Is the LQP-79 Zombie Virus real? Many curious minds have been wondering if there could ever be a real zombie outbreak, or even, a zombie apocalypse.

After doing some research about this so-called zombie virus, I found lots of various opinions of people that think:
A. A zombie outbreak is possible
B. Zombies will never be real
C. The LQP-79 virus is real
D. It’s all a conspiracy theory

This is a great topic, so I decided to answer these questions based on some research I have done.

A. So, is a zombie outbreak possible? Could one’s soul leave the body, and then a hungry, flesh-eating zombie spirit take over the ‘dead’ body? Does one’s soul have to leave the body, in order for one to become a zombie?

The old zombie tale is usually the same. A zombie who is infected with a virus like LQP-79, bites a healthy living person, then the healthy person dies quickly and their spirit leaves. At that point, the now deceased human body ‘turns’ and becomes alive again- yet they are dead and walking. The only way for the zombie to continue thriving, is to eat flesh.

B. Could the old zombie tale actually come true in real life? ‘Why not?’ many say, as people are chatting on the Web about the recent ‘Miami zombie man‘ who ate another man’s face off like he was a zombie. Miami Police used ‘bath salts’ the drug, as a cover for the incident, and declared bath salts the reasoning for the zombie man’s attack on video.

An exclusive news story came out stating that the Police did guess that the zombie man was on bath salts, and the truth of what drug or why the zombie man went nuts, won’t be known until a toxicology report comes out plus other information.

So what does one have to act like, look like and feel like to become a zombie? Who decides if one turns into a zombie or not? Can you judge a possible zombie by their behavior i.e. are their eyes missing a soul? Is the possible zombie walking with a limp? Is the p.z. grunting? Does the p.z. look dead? Is the p.z. constantly eating meat? HOW DO YOU KNOW FOR SURE ONE TURNED INTO A ZOMBIE?

C. Rumors have been flying around that the zombie virus is called the LQP-79 virus. Where did the virus come from? Is it like the flesh-eating bacteria ‘Necrotizing Fasciitis‘ or ‘Naegleria Fowleri‘ the brain-eating amoeba- all found in warm lake water? If LQP-79 is like both of these combined, then a person would be brain dead plus their skin and limbs would rot. An infected person wouldn’t even be able to walk… unless- they had an extra element that made them hungry for iron (blood) and calcium (bones, milk, cows). Say that this combination made the LQP-79 virus and turned people into zombies, how long could one keep living under these conditions?

In my opinion, without nanobots repairing the organs, or some other new drug that quickly repairs the body, then zombies really couldn’t survive very long- but the virus could…

D. Some people out there are saying that the LQP-79 virus is a conspiracy theory and so are zombies. Well, after looking around out there on the Web of truth and lies, the LQP-79 is not established as a ‘real’ virus by any official disease control group like the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). The CDC joked on their currently crashed site about ‘Zombie Preparedness’ back in 2011, which I thought was unprofessional. There have been some phony sites out there claiming that the LQP-79 virus is real. One person chatting on Yahoo Answers about the matter says that their Father is a scientist and ‘he says the virus is real’.

The name seems to not be real or established officially, but a zombie virus doesn’t sound all that ‘out there’, considering the fact that many conspiracy theories have been proven true. So have movies, that have depicted the future which came true. Or former top secrets in the Military who have come out years later and spilled some secret information.

Why couldn’t some sort of zombie outbreak happen? Or even a zombie apocalypse? What do you think? Leave your thoughts below!

    random comment………….CHEEEEESSSSSEEEE!!!!!

    It’s been quite a while before anyone has commented…but I’m a high school student (freshman year) and I wanted to know if anyone could help me find e story of a woman from Florida who had Rabies and went untreated. When the virus progressed, apparently, the disease started to make her brain decay. This caused her to fear water and go mentally unstable, when authorities found her, she had killed someone and was eating them. (I’m not to usually get to deep into this…but my interest in Biology has me on the hunt for this story! And as for this article, I don’t believe the ‘Zombie Outbreak’ is real, we just read too many stories and watch too many movies before bed. :) )

    If u only knew the whole truth. Jesus may come, but would u knw him from his brother?

    The virus has been around…rabies…only its contraction in humans has caused complete neural decay..if it were to evolve, the same symptoms in animals, aggression,confusion,foaming at the mouth, would occur. Reanimatng the dead would utilize etheric energy/soul, which up to this point has only been a godly act.. even species beyond our technical and genetic capabilities would have issues utilizing and manipulating human etheric energy.

    Exactly..we do it because we can… and with 7 billion people in the world, whats a couple million wiped out? Truth be told every person fears death, but living is what takes true courage. Whether a zombie virus is rwal or not is hardly the question; the question is, why worry about death? It will come eventually, somehow.. what matters is how we live. By succumbing to conspiracy theories and myths we unconciously decide how we dont wanna die, plague our days about the final coming. The best thing to do is live ur life like normal and relish in the revelation that so many civilizations through out history believe in the afterlife and so do we.. worry about the judgement one recieves for the life one lives, and welcome death when it comes, for the test is over, time to be graded

    Dont worry, currently the virus is only blood borne, n the rabies vaccine should suffice. The government has other plans that lpq-79 does not fit with. The only reason to allow it to overwhelm a population is simply for population control. Personally id b more worried about extraterrestrial intervention than human biological manipulation

    Bathsalts have been in circulation for decades. Its hard to believe that it is barely being revealed to have such dramatic affects. Plus the people in question who did take ” bath salts” have never had a history of drug abuse. Why start picking up a drug that is rarely been exploited, why not cannibus?
