England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west; the Irish Sea is to the north west, the Celtic Sea to the south west, while the North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south separate it from continental Europe. Most of England comprises the central and southern part of the island of Great Britain in the North Atlantic. The country also includes over one-hundred smaller islands such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight.
In 28 Days Later
After scientists Clive and Warren accidentally developed the Rage Virus while trying to create an anger inhibitor for an unknown company, Clive informed the Animal Freedom Front, an animal rights organisation, that the Cambridge Primate Research Centre was experimenting on chimps (the ones which he and Warren had exposed to the Rage Virus). (28 Days Later: The Aftermath) The AFF sent three activists to the facility to free the infected chimps, which then infected the activists, who in turn began spreading the Infection throughout Cambridge. (28 Days Later (film))
Within twenty-eight days, England and the rest of mainland Britain was decimated and destroyed by the Rage Virus, and quarantined, leaving the survivors to fend for themselves after the British Army and the Government collapsed. (28 Days Later (film), 28 Weeks Later)
Over the next few weeks after the Original Outbreak, most of the Infected in England began to die from starvation. Over the following twenty-three weeks, a NATO force led by the US Army entered London and slowly began to rebuild and repopulate the country, starting with the Isle of Dogs. (28 Weeks Later)
However, Alice Harris, a survivor of the Original Outbreak and an Carrier of the Infection, was brought into the Green Zone on the Isle of Dogs, and unintentionaly caused a Second Outbreak. The US Army initiated Code Red and napalmed the Isle, but not before a large number of Infected escaped into London. Thus, the Army began venting chemical gas into London and sending out armed soldiers to exterminate the Infected. (28 Weeks Later)
It is unknown whether the military was able to kill the surviving Infected, or if the extermination efforts failed and England was overrun again by the Rage Virus.
