I thought this might be an interesting topic.
Assuming there was a breakout of the zombie plague in a city within your country, what would you do, as leader of your nation to contain the spread and/or prepare it for the coming zombie attacks?
Most people here are Americans, so I'm doing mine with respect to an outbreak in Italy.
If I were the Prime Minister of Italy, and an outbreak occurred, for instance, in Venice, I'd request Parliament to concede to the government the "necessary powers" to deal with it. I'd then immediately send troops, tanks, planes, and ships to quarantine the city in an attempt to prevent the spread of the infection.
In a news conference, I'd give a detailed explanation of what is known about the plague, and inform the nation of a declaration of a state of emergency and the necessity to proclaim martial law.
I'd then announce the building of a wall to keep the north of the country isolated, and to stop the contagion from spreading south should the quarantine in Venice fail (which, personally, I would expect). At the same time, I'd have special refugee camps established in the mountainous areas of the country in order to effect an evacuation, should it be necessary. And in these camps, aside from sheltering refugees, there would be training led by the military to give everyone basic knowledge of what to do, and to allow people to be prepared in case of attack by zombies.
Then I'd set aside at least 30% of the budget toward researching how to kill the zombies and/or find a cure or vaccine to stop the spread (if possible).
Of course, any and all travel to and from Italy would be canceled, indefinitely.
And the final step would be to heavily fortify the islands (Sicily, Sardinia, Lampedusa, etc), should the above fail and the peninsula be lost, to allow whoever possible to withdraw to the islands.
Any of y'all have ideas?
