Congrats, Kspence92 must be happy
I feel there should've been more safe zones along with the virus being spread to the Middle East and North Africa as an example of how contagious it is.
Here's a few:
London - Isle of Dogs
London - Croydon
I left out Glasgow and Birmingham because you mentioned it as being too full of bodies and would be uninhabitable.
The virus never reached the Middle East since the Turkish destroyed the Bosphorus bridge. It also did not spread to North Africa.
Manchester needs to be rebuilt too.
1.) Just do what happened in Glasgow in Izmir
2.) And who will rebuild Manchester?
Day 1 - Exposure
Day 2 - Infection
Day 5 - Epidemic
Day 7 - Containment
Day 14 - Breakdown
Day 16 - Evacuation
Day 21 - Quarantine
Day 28 - Devastation
Week 8 - Desolation
Week 10 - Expedition
Week 12 - Reconstruction
Week 16 - Resettlement
Week 28 - Reinfection
1. European side of Turkey is decimated but the eastern side got spared. Kspence92 decided to spare it for some reason.
2. Manchester won't be rebuild for the next 3-4 decades since much of the UK is still desolate and abandoned.
It’s a shame really but you kinda proved my point on Manchester.
And, in the most extreme example, kill them and make it look like an accident; this is one of the few times it might be justified...
"Yes, it's a pity that Mr. Harris was cooking dinner and didn't realize there was leaking gas; these things happen..."
May 4 2002 - British outbreak
November 16 2002 - European outbreak
September 4 2004 - 28 months later...
This is according to a date calculator
If there's one thing we know, it's how easy it is to completely choke off the flow of tens of millions of refugees between Europe and the Middle East by denying them a single bridge.
*cough cough* Mediterranean and airlines *cough*
The thing with fast viruses is that it can only reach so far. The fact is since the world got to prepare in between the dates of May 4, 2002 (first outbreak) and December 4, 2002 (second outbrea), followed by the European Outbreak (December 5, 2002 to mid-2003), there would be stricter regulations in travel and there would be mobilized. The moment the virus reached France, all airlines would have not flew to France and the militaries of the nearby countries already prepared. Plus the Rage infected aren't undead, they can still die to the natural elements and starvation. More importantly they can die by drowning too. I assume the Med countries sank most refugee boats.
I have said it before - Rage would not reach Europe.
Because it is so fast acting, a plane with infected would have crashed rather than get to Europe. Channel Tunnel can be shut as soon as the Emergency is known in the UK.
Ignore the 2nd movie, the chopper would not have reached France. From the moment of the Quarantine NOTHING flies, or sails from the UK mainland and reaches another country.
If the Americans/NATO tried to resettle the UK it would not be some half-arsed attempt in Docklands, it would be from the ports and military bases first and slowly, systematically moved up the country in hazmat. ANY sign of Rage is put down with extreme prejudice. If scientists thought there was ANY chance of carriers then all survivors would be screened and separated.
It would be slow, it would be years of work, but the UK would rise again.
1.) It's canon
2.) It'd be boring if it was restricted to the UK
3.) It's a fucking film, calm down.
Regardless of what you thought of my post, I hope you realise exactly how rude yours was in reply.
Okay fine the swearing was over the top but apart from that I was just pointing out the obvious, besides you seemed frustrated in your post.
Nice map but as per @kspence92's the virus never made it to North Africa.
I messaged him and asked for a continuation. Hint hint 28 months later.
