I'm probably dead. The Philippines is overpopulated and in 2013, the military was at a bad state. I just graduated high school at the time of the Great Panic. If ever I'm alive, I never got the chance to experience college, get drunk, party, flirt with girls, and earn my degree.

Here's a fanfic set in the Philippines:

There's a story called The Way is Shut. Fans have considered it canon.

Yes, there are 23 million zombies just waiting to be let out once those rusty doors finally give way.

Here's another North Korea story about a UN expedition but it has not been continued:

Then another fanfic where North Korea does not collapse and enters a truce with South Korea:

In the other forum:

Ah yes I`ve read that wonderful fanfic. Ok thanks. I`m probably dead as well in this TL I would be a 24 year old disabled woman in Northern Ireland I don`t think that `s a survivable combination.
The Way Is Shut was in fact written by our very own @Cymraeg, over a decade ago

Give him a shout out!
 
in Philippines on Visayas Zombies next Earthquakes on Bohol can been worst.
The Bohol earthquake on October 15, 2013 would be the least of everyone's worries. Those Spanish-era churches would remain damaged well into the 2020s.

I wish there is a sequel to it. Most North Korea fanfics end up being discontinued.
 
Don't forget the following PODs:

He only became President in 2013 and Hu Jintao would have been President at this point.

I totally forgot to add the Miami zombie incident. In this case, it's probably those minor attacks that were dealt with the Alpha Teams.

In that case, the Chinese government did acknoweldge them as zombies. They were cover-up as dissidents or enemies-of-the-state that were trying to subvert the ideals of the Communist Party.

Not the less, Xi Jinping would have already known about the zombies as he was Vice President then became General Secretary in 2012. He then would inherit a country that would see itself outnumbered for the first time in history.

also the Chinese PLA drafting civilians as Conscripts to fight the Zombies only got failed.

Anything beyond May 2013 in OTL would be butterflied away. There is no BLM here. These may however, occur in some forms along survivor communities.

As seen by the actual BLM protests and Antifa protests in OTL, quarantine orders and vaccine mandates will not stop protesters. Just remember that even with the massive casualties and scientific evidence, people will continue to believe conspiracy theories regarding the virus and its vaccine....

Too bad the zombies don't care about if you are a conservative or a liberal, Democrat or Republican.

As such, I do believe some Christian fundies or KKK will try to carve out an ethnostate in the South.

It was mentioned that African-American gangsters took over Chicago's Sears/Willis Tower and turned it into a kingpin.

Don't worry, there will be items to flag the ethnostate division:

I think it's implied that "The Whako" was Howard Dean and that the President that cracked up after Yonkers was Colin Powell himself
 
Looking at the safe zones established by the American government in World War Z, I was 12-13 years back then and I would have ended up in one of them with my family assuming it isn't breached by the zombies.
 
One big problem with World War Z being a straight adaptation is Nelson Mandela (a.k.a. "Madiba", "Dalibunga") was out of office in 1999, a full 14 years before the events of the story, and dead in 2013, and yet he is credited for creating the strategy to defend South African cities and villages,

Didn't Paul Redeker do that? Mandela just supported the Plan and used his clout to get it passed by the South African government. You could have some other old ANC politician support the pan.

Mandela still has some influence over South African politics. Also he survives here past his OTL death date.

(Of course Max Brooks would have never known that Mandela would die in 2013 and the Russia would support Ukrainian separatists in 2014 since the book was published in 2006).
