Ok in the time line it states that living people can become zomibes and are runners. My question is how does this work. if the living zombie is injured to the point of death but the brain is not damaged.
Example: Dad is bitten and becomes a runner. I'm assuming this is along the lines of 28 days later. Then he is shot in the heart and dies. Now I'm also assuming that at this point he becomes a normal slow moving zombie.
Is this right or are runners actually dead too? I'm assuming they are still alive due to the statement that a living person does not have to die to become a zombie. Input?
