In The Walking Dead we learn early on (S2 if memory serves) that everyone is infected and the infection only takes effect after death but I don't recall if new born babies are infected.

My question in about babies conceived after the 'outbreak/epidemic' (post Rick waking up out of his coma) are born infected, so not directly asking about Judith as she was conceived before.

I binged watched so may not have absorbed every little detail and still haven't watched S9 yet as can't stand waiting a week between episodes so no spoilers please.

  • @jenayah are you sure it's the same? Similar but mine is specific to post virus conception where as the one you highlighted doesn't ask that and none of the comments/answers I read cover it either. Just saying. Mar 6, 2019 at 12:15
  • Yeah I should probably​have written "related" instead, in any case that was to link info together not to say there was a problem with your question​ :) (though the "we dunno" answer probably still stands)

  • It's possible (granted I haven't read any books/comics, just seen the series up to S8) that the writers haven't alluded to that yet. I've watched all the way through to S8 twice and STILL hvaen't seen anything either alluding to that, @Seamusthedog Mar 6, 2019 at 18:40
  • FWIW I've read all the comics and while there have been some post-infection-conceived babies I don't remember them being killed, or it not being worthy of a notice. So maybe not enough info there as well
