Venomous zombies on The Walking Dead

Modern zombie movies and TV shows often frame the creation of said zombies around the spread of a virus or some other kind of disease. The Walking Dead is no exception. But, because of the specific in-universe rules of zombie-making that the show has laid out, the virus-only explanation doesn't totally make sense, writes blogger Kyle Hill. Instead, the zombies in The Walking Dead universe must also be pseudo-venomous, their bites loaded with some deadly mix of viruses and bacterial proteins.
