A new poll in the UK has revealed that some people may already be preparing for such an eventuality.
The destruction of mankind at the hands of a contagious zombie virus is a scenario that has played out time and again in movies, books and TV shows, but what if it were to actually happen for real ?
In a new YouGov poll, members of the public were asked if they had a plan for dealing with such a situation and if so, what would it be ?
Interestingly, more than one in nine respondents actually did have a plan, although many of those would simply involve laying low somewhere in the hope that the whole thing would blow over.
For many people, the biggest priorities would be to gather food, water and medicine and to get out of the cities in favor of finding shelter somewhere out in the countryside.
Acquiring weapons, rescuing family members and actively killing zombies were also on the list.
Around nine percent of those with a plan even refused to divulge what it actually was.
"Clearly we shouldn't be worrying twenty four seven about a potential apocalypse but it's interesting to take a snap shot of where we are now and how we'd fare," said author Professor Lewis Dartnell.
