Final Solution to the infection?

(Don't mind me, this is half fanfic half speculation.)
What would happen really if there was a infection in US?
My speculation is THIS: The countries of south america would cooperate and build a wall to central america to stop the infection, the UN would quarantine north america, shooting down all planes coming or going. The canada would perhaps fall (But that's unlikely, because canadians KICK ARSH, and no, i not a canadian, but a scandinavian) But the infected would be in a dead end in canada, because there's no way to reach russia without using aircraft or boats. And the infected lack intelligence to use one , and the russian government and china's army would do the same thing at the west coast.

If the infected carry the virus long enough without turning, it could easily spread to other parts of the world through air travel. Although having the UN shoot down anything coming out would be an effective quarantine solution, have you seen how the UN actually works? It wouldn't be anywhere near quick enough. They don't have the military might to quarantine all the US's borders, they aren't decisive enough, etc... This would have to be enforced within hours of an outbreak. The government wouldn't even understand what it is by the time it would be out of this country.

If people turn into zombies much quicker (like a few hours or less), there would be a chance of containing it. It depends on the original source of the outbreak. (Guy bitten in a lab? Ground water or air infected?)

Also, there already is a "wall" in central America: the Panama Canal.

Hate to be the one to say this, but he's right. The Green Flu (The infection) changes from bite to air to fluid contact to any combination of the three. There'd be no way to stop it short of shooting everything that moves. Better hope you're a carrier because life's about to get really hard.
