Warmbrunn, an Israeli agent, was among the first to pay close attention to early reports of zombies from around the world, and to caution his government against the imminent threat. He says that, as a nation, the Israelis are generally wary about danger because they had already come close to extinction before and are determined to never let this happen again. Warmbrunn got in touch with his ex-CIA friend, Paul Knight, who was also collecting evidence of zombie outbreaks. The two of them wrote the Warmbrunn-Knight Report, with inputs from several researchers and agents around the world, and they sent off copies of this report to several nations to tell them how to protect themselves from a zombie outbreak. However, this report was ignored by all nations except Israel, which declared a voluntary quarantine to protect itself from the virus. Warmbrunn expresses regret that the zombie war could have been prevented if the report was read and acted upon. At the conclusion of the novel, the narrator includes a short second interview of Warmbrunn in which he states that the zombie war had a huge cost and that no one in the world can escape its effects.
