I asked on the Walking Dead FB fan page and they said 18 months as well.
Apparently there was a different producer for the first season which may explain why the walkers were different.

I just re-watched season 1 ep 5 and found the bit with the CDC guy (Jenner) sending a transmission:
"Jenner here, it's 194 days since Wildfire was declared & ?63 days since the disease abruptly went global".
I couldn't make out if there was a number in front of the 63 or not as it sort of buzzes out like there's a problem with the transmission.
So I guess the timeframe would be they knew about the disease 194 days before the 18 months but it only destroyed the planet (so to speak), 63 days prior. Which would make sense thinking about Ricks wound there's no way he would still have an open gunshot wound after 194 days or would he?
Geez I have way to much time on my hands at the moment .

Rick could not have been unattended in hospital for too long or he would have died of dehydration.
I wonder how the virus spread around the world...it's not like zombies can get on planes. I know it must be airborne as they are all infected now.
But how did so many people get turned into zombies? So airborne = everyone infected. Someone dies= turns into zombie = attacks someone. Can it really happen that quickly when there would have been so few to start with? I guess people would not have known how to kill them initially?
I really wish they would go back and show how it all started.

It's the infection NtS... they're all infected regardless of getting attacked... so I guess it means that people were sick, passed it on to others, without anyone knowing.
Even if it wasn't like that, and you could ONLY become a zombie if one attacked you (some movies it's bites-only, other times scratches can do it too), a person could just get attacked, be patched up at hospital, travel somewhere overseas... and then go full-on Zombie and so the rampage begins.
Though don't worry... if there's one thing I've learnt from "end of world," style movies (Zombie flicks included), Australia is pretty much off-limits. We either get pretty much left alone entirely, or it takes freaking forever for the damage to get to us (in which case, we have plenty of time to prepare!).
I am so getting killed in a Zombie Apocalypse though... partly because I don't really rate my survival skills, but mostly because my daughter would have us killed... so unless I could be a cold-hearted jerk and toss her their way, I'd end up as Zombie chow too.

I get that everyone is infected...but people have to die or be bitten to turn into zombies...just wondering how it turned into such a plague that there are so few humans left (just tallking about Walking Dead here). And they generally turn within a few minutes so no time to go flying overseas.

We have a plan, but it requires a house with an attic with the pull up stair case.
My DH takes it pretty seriously, if we buy a house, he wants it to have that or a basement.
I have read the Handbook too, written by the same guy that wrote WWZ.

Could it be that the disease started off as a strain of something else, then it mutated into a strain that caused zombies when the carrier dies. It then mutates again so that if you are bitten or scratched by a Zombie it causes death (either by activating the dormant strain they all have in their bodies or infecting them with a new mutated aggressive strain of the disease). Just a theory.

It's like the spread of any transmittable disease I suppose... I might have contact with 5 people I pass it to... then they pass it to 5 each... so that's me, the original 5 I passed it on to, plus 25 more people on top... who then pass it on again... etc etc. Spreads fairly simply I think.
I think there'd be more people left than they think anyway... it's just that everyone is kind of hiding, so the chances of them cross paths is kind of slim.
That's my take on how it all works anyway.

Did anyone see the road? End of days movie not zombies, same sort of thing happens, you really can't trust everyone either! Look at what people did to that campsite!
