*** The infected are perfectly capable of starving to death, no matter how much they may eat. As they explicitly said in the film, they don't work or farm. There's only so much food to go around before it runs out and/or spoils. When the easily accessible food sources run out, there's nothing for the infected to turn, and they just starve to death.

* In the infected child scene as mentioned above, one could hear the infected child scream "I hate you". Could this mean the infected could be atleast semi-sentient and/or intelligent and are just consumed by rage to stop killing everything?

** Viruses of that sort normally end in the death of the infectee. The Rage virus leaves them alive to continue to spread the virus until their death, presumably. In real life, there have been cases where viruses and/or diseases become more deadly in higher population densities. A smaller population density would by necessity have the virus reproduce slower or have a larger incubation period or it would die out without spreading itself. In a larger population density, the virus can be allowed to kill as quickly as it can so it can spread to as many as possible before the host dies.

* All those dead bodies in the building near the gas trunk they refueled from, and just ''one'' infected child in the whole place. What, were all those people his loved ones and couldn't bring themselves to fight back, even as he ripped them apart?

** Maybe the Virus was having its intended effect (Of mellowing them out and making them all peace loving hippies) ... But ONLY to others that are infected? To them, they are merely spreading the love, so to speak.
