28 Days Later

Plot hole: When someone is in a coma for 28 days, the hospital would have AT LEAST have catheterized said person, however when Jim wakes up in the hospital he is not attached to anything but an IV.

Suggested correction: What happened when Jim was admitted is never revealed. Being that there is nothing to show what happened when he was admitted its impossible to say certain procedures would have been followed or more simply the hospital might have not undertaken them. More importantly we don't know when the virus hit certain areas. In addition Jim was taken in around the time the virus was first starting to spread and hospitals would be the most likely place someone infected would be taken to so many working or staying there would have been the first to have been infected. With that scenario the staff at the hospital might have neglected some of their patients because of how quickly the virus spread.

If the hospitals would have been some of the first infection sites, why would Jim have survived the entire 28 days? I doubt someone was refilling his IV on a regular schedule if the patients are becoming violent animals, which would suggest he would have died of dehydration before starvation would have gotten to him. Also, why would those infected ignore Jim while he was comatose? Would it not be 'sporting'? Given how instinctual they seem to become I don't see how comatose would be any different from intoxicated or deeply asleep. Did all of those sorts avoid infection as well?

Continuity mistake: The chain and collar vanishes from Mailer's neck as he runs into the mansion. (01:33:45 - 01:35:20)

Hello
More trivia for 28 Days Later

Question: Why do some people infected with the rage just die while others spread it and have to die out by starvation? For example, why did the main character's parents die lying peacefully in bed instead of while foraging for others to infect and eventually starving to death?

Answer: Jim's parents did not get infected with Rage. They decided to commit suicide, hence the pills and alcohol beside the bed. They basically decided that it was better to die than become infected, hence the message on the back of the picture. Those that are infected with Rage, the length of time it takes to die probably relates to how they were infected. If they were infected through the mouth or something similar then they would live for a while, if they were infected through a serious wound then obviously they would become infected but would not live as long because of the serious injury.
