If everyone already HAS the zombie virus then why do they become zombies after a zombie bite? Everyone already has the virus in their system...why does the bite affect people already infected?

I would guess that whatever virus is already there is dormant. A bite could overload and accelerate the process of turning the living into the unliving.

The zombie bite simply causes an infection that kills the victim. The already present zombie virus within the victim, is what returns them to their undead state.

They're dealing with two different infections-- one that kills, and another that turns you into a zombie. It's just that zombies carry something else that kills you really quickly.
