The virus they have is contagious and has a high mortality rate. They have been quarantined and are contained away from all other survivors.
How large a group to protect do you feel justifies killing them in cold blood while they are weak and helpless to prevent reanimation or infection to other survivors?

Agreed. It is exactly these decisions that separate men from savages. If you lose who you are in your effort to survive, is survival really worth it?
Waiting until they're dead is the right course of action, regardless if they are sick.
If they survive the sickness, then they could be used to develop anti-bodies to help the others.
That's pretty much how the Europeans kicked yellow fevers' ass.

My way is to wait until those people die before destroying the brain. Morality is very loose in the ZA, you need to have some conviction to keep you grounded and by waiting until someone dies means that you don't have to struggle with the thought of killing them before hand. Even if they were sick with the flu, we don't just shoot people for being sick now, we quarantine them and try to prevent spread.
