At one point Michael estimates there are 42 million virals in the North America, based on the population of the area and the fact they infect one in ten.
But then The Many of Babcock are said to be in the "thousands", which would mean only 50 or 100 thousand total between the 12 and Zero.
North America is a little less than 10 million square miles, so if there really are 40 million virals, there's an average density of 4 virals per square mile, which sounds high to me.
But if there are really only thousands of them, where did the rest go? Did they all starve to death?
May the road gangs never meet you. May the wind be fallout-free. May the sun shine through the ashes, hot rain not fall on thee. And until we meet again, may no one hold your flesh in the palm of their hand.
Great point Megaton - in a discussion in the previous section you had mentioned the sacrifice ritual at the Haven not adding up. Two people every month for 100 years just doesn't make sense given the number of people at the Haven at the time.
My theory is that Babcock started "stockpiling" humans at the Haven toward the beginning, at one point possibly having the prison block full of potential sacrifices. It may be reasonable to assume that the other 11 did something like this. Perhaps instead of infected 1 of every 10, they began kidnapping and "breeding" 1 of every 10, so keep human blood in supply.
This may result in considerably less than the 42 million estimate. But it's just a theory.
Keep in mind the the Army was able to fight them. Maybe not as effectively as they would of liked, but atleast able to hold them off. outside their cities. The airforce bombings, fires, and nuclear explosions (if they were nuclear bombs and not powerplants going up) would of taken out very large clusters of virals.
Starvation should of also taken it's toll.
I'd say 75% of the Viral population had been decreased in the 90 year gap.
That still leaves much more than "thousands." Thousands would not even be able to cover 1 US state, and they are implying that the 12 have taken over all of North America. They would need millions of Virals to cover that terrain.
