@Ukron what do you think of the Dawn of the Dead (2004) timeline? What do you think happened to France and Europe?
Hard to say but as the news broadcast says that London and Istanbul were felling to zombies, you can presume that the whole european major urban centers suffers the same fate.

Considering the UK is only a plane away, very likely indeed.
 
Here's a summary of Chapter 56 of Biggest Fear that somehow expands the universe of Dawn of the Dead. Corrected a few inconsistencies and grammatical errors. Credits to thecricketsarecalling.
The virus stuck the world somewhere in-between the early weeks of May 2004. No one really knows how it started. Some say it the disease had been on earth the whole time, and the out break just so happened to fall around this date in time.

Others said that countries out east made it and sent it over, but that rumor was later dropped since the who world became infected.

Then such things as people from space sent it over, some saying it was air born...others saying the military did it...no one really did know.

But a certain man had his own thoughts, later on during all of this he would share them with a few people whenever they questioned his out look on life, and he just simply answered. "We have been cursed by the Creator Himself...we brought it on, he just wanted to finish it."

But for Ana Setzer, a young married nurse, her whole life was changed.

When she woke up one morning she witnessed the most horrific sights any person could ever seen with their own two eyes.

She ran as far as she could and met up with people, they all stayed together and grew as part as team over the space of a month or so, and she met a man named Michael, a complete stranger who she feel in love with.

When they all tried to escape from the death which was starting to gap in between them the plan feel through and many of them were lost on the way, Michael being one of them.

He was bitten and vowed to stay behind, Ana watched from the boat, which carried only four of them now towards a unknown future...and until he was out of sight...the only check she had of his death was the loud gun shot which rang through the air.

They found an island, a safe island with everything they needed...they tried to start over. At first Ana was depressed and lived in her own world...but the news of her first born child coming into the world make her heart fill with hope.

They all became parents to her son and raised him from a baby to a healthy young boy...now the sadness which had washed over their lives were a thing of the past...they could move on now with the new world.

But one fine spring day as Hunter splashed around in the tide, Ana, Kenneth, Nicole, and Terry all sat together on the warm baked sand, they were talking about the nightmares they had been sharing.

Kenneth dreamed it was later in time, and how he arrived to this very same island and smoke was in the air...and how he had the panic feeling that he was too late for something.

Nicole's dream was her in one of the houses, locked up while one of those things were clawing outside to get in.

And Terry dreamed about leaving the island in the dead of tight, with what looked to be a baby...Hunter maybe?

Ana hadn't had a dream, but she told them all they were just nerves and shouldn't worry.

They had nothing to be scared of anymore.

Was that John Green playing the news reporter in the London segment?
 
What do you think happened to France and Europe?
As someone else said, with zombies already overruning the UK and Turkey, we can assume there were outbreaks throughout Europe that probably ended the same way it did for the midwestern US. The question is if, say, France tried to call in Shiva to deal with some of the larger hordes but I think command and control failed before that could happen.
 
Lost Media
On the pop-culture side, here are some films that were going to be released after the POD.

Important to note that Van Helsing was released on the day of the outbreak:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_American_films_of_2004
The notable rest (Troy, Shrek 2, The Day After Tomorrow, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkhaban, Garfield: The Movie, Chronicles of Riddick, Napoleon Dynamite, Fahrenheit 9/11, and Spiderman 2) that came out months later in OTL would be considered lost media.
 
@terranova210486 since you mention celebrities a lot, what do you think of the Dawn of the Dead remake timelime (2004 POD)
What do you think of Hollywood celebrities and future artists that only rose to prominence in the late-2000s/2010s in OTL?

I could see some Hollywood celebrities boogey out of Los Angeles as it was overrun. The elite have access to armed security, yatchs, private jets, or isolated mansions located in mountains or forests.

However I do think the likes of Justin Bieber, Zendaya, Hailee Steinfeld, Lorde, Rebecca Black, Camilla Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, the members of One Direction, Jonas Brothers, and Billie Eilish to name a few would be butterflied away. Even if they survived (they were still kids as of 2004), the outbreak would have changed their views and they would never have rose to prominence.

I'm not sure. I hope Beyoncé and Natalie Portman survived.
 
NBA Conference Semifinals (May 2-7, 2004)
Here is the NBA Conference Semifinals on the days leading to the outbreak. It appears that the Detroit Pistons and the New Jersey Nets were in the middle of the a game when the outbreak occurred on that night of May 7th, 2004. I wonder how it would have caused the game to be suspended.
