Re: Zombies vs. Zombies
If you were doing it in dnd 3.5, you could say a Remove Disease/Break Enchantment (or something expensive like Raise Dead) can cure it before incubation completes... but those are really rare/expensive, and just not feasible to heal everyone this way. It gives the PCs a resource (spells/day, Diamond Dust, Wands/Scrolls) which will quickly deplete if they're reckless, will last them if they don't get hit, and is very valuable among survivors.

The PCs still have to make that choice, and face the consequences later.
