Humans are monsters too. The term is applicable to nearly any creature if you ask the right person.

"The term "monster" refers to a being that is a gross exception to the norms of some ecosystem"


Wiki

Human definitely fits in there.

I think you could sneak aboard an airplane. But then when you arrive what tools are you going to use to fix the TV. I know the sun had everyone out in droves today but I had coffee for breakfast. If he really wanted to be in that film then he would have let the producers know. Surely it's not too mad to pay 6.20 for a pint in town? Nah, don't bother going to ricks anymore, the food is terrible.

well, thanks to the dozens of zombie movies around we know what NOT to do, i.e shoot the lock off a petrol pump handle with a shotgun.

Girls missing a leg can come in handy, too.

Make sure to have one shraphnel grenage with you. I have a theory that a shrapnel or frag grenade held at head height would kil a good few zombies. Use it as a last stand screaming. "I left the water running!!!"

We have another advantage though, in that we have instant communications. After the first wave, word would quickly get around and anyone displaying symptoms would have no chance of infecting anyone else. In order for that to be a problem you'd need a long gestation period, no indication that they had been infected, and very rapid onset and resurrection rates. Random strangers wandering in bandaged would not have a chance to do any damage.

I suppose it would also depend on whether it starts here or somewhere else. As someone already said, we'd be alright seen as we're an Island. Just close the ports and airports and keep a good eye out for anything trying to get it.

In the case of a boat of survivors from somewhere else there would definitely have to be a quarantine procedure. Someone might be infected that we're unsure of.

Might be a different matter if it started here...
