The Zombie Diaries

Synopsis

In the early part of the twenty-first century, a virus 'Omega Strand' - a variant of the avian flu, began spreading among the populous. Within weeks it had reached the world's greatest cities and the infection spread with ferocious speed.

The loss of life was enormous, with an estimated 999 of every 1000 people succumbing to the virus. The virus would overwhelm a person within hours and upon death, the body would become reanimated until it was no longer able to sustain itself.

Mankind was robbed of the basic essentials of life: electricity, gas, running water. Survivors packed into small groups and found refuge in high-rise buildings and remote areas as the majority of urban land became uninhabitable. With looting and disease, food supplies dwindled and became unreachable in the majority of towns and cities.

Some survivors, not knowing if or when the chaos would end, began documenting their plight in whatever form they could: the written word, photographs and video.
