Short Essay Questions Key
1. How is the Solanum Virus passed along?
Solanum only infects someone through a bite or other fluid transfer, but it is always fatal. There must be physical contact and an exchange of fluids, but any time this happens, the victim will die within hours.
2. How can committing suicide prevent a zombie attack?
If an infected person commits suicide, the brain must be destroyed. This can keep a zombie attack from furthering itself because people who are already dead cannot be animated with the virus.
3. Why is there no immunization for Solanum?
No immunization against Solanum can be developed, since the immunization itself would be fatal. Scientists are researching treatments for Solanum infection, but currently no treatment exists.
4. What does the Solanum virus do once it is injected into a victim?
When a victim is bit or otherwise infected with Solanum, Solanum travels through the bloodstream to the brain. It replicates itself in the frontal lobe brain cells and destroys them, killing the host. The virus creates a new brain-like organ that controls the body without needing oxygen.
