Plague Inc. Virus on Normal

Welcome to my walkthrough for Plague Inc. Virus on Normal. Before we get started, please note that this level is extremely complicated. Make sure that you follow this tutorial carefully, step-by-step. This tutorial works for both the mobile and the PC version of the game. You should also take a look at these tips if you need more help.

First things first:

  • A virus in this game mutates rapidly and is hard to control.
  • Allow all symptoms.
  • Remember to pop bubbles as they appear.
  • Start your virus in Saudi Arabia.

Before you start, don't forget: follow these steps closely and carefully! I've separated them out into singular moves for your convenience:

  1. Allow your points to reach the first mutation (usually 13-15).
  2. Get Drug Resistance 1.
  3. Build your points to about 20.
  4. Get Air Transmission 1.
  5. Build your points to about 20.
  6. Get Heat Resistance 1.
  7. Build your points to about 20.
  8. Get Air Transmission 2.
  9. Build your points to about 30.
  10. Get Water Transmission 1.
  11. Get Water Transmission 2.
  12. Build your points to about 30.
  13. Get Drug Resistance 2.
  14. Get Genetic Hardening 1.
  15. Build your points to about 40.
  16. Get Heat Resistance 2.
  17. Get Cold Resistance 1.
  18. Build your points to about 70.
  19. Get Cold Resistance 2.
  20. Get Environmental Hardening.
  21. Build your points to about 70.
  22. Get Blood Transmission 1.
  23. Get Blood Transmission 2.
  24. Build your points to about 100.
  25. Get Genetic Reshuffle 1.
  26. Get Genetic Hardening 2.
  27. Build points until everyone is infected.
  28. Go to Symptoms choose deadly symptoms i.e. Total Organ Failure.
  29. Now, watch everyone die.
  30. Don't forget to comment and subscribe!

      Greenland got me worried cause it remained uninfected until seconds before they decided to close down the port. But them again Greenland is always a wild card. Continued upping the virus' resistance with the remaining points and it work very nicely. Finished with the cure at 50%, so thanks!

      Followed steps exactly. Greenland never got infected, Iceland survived too. Maybe should do water transmission before air transmission to give them more time to get infected.

      Yes, it worked the first time! I didn't get genetic reshuffle 1 or genetic hardening 2, because the whole world was infected and i decided to get organ failure and after that i got genetic reshuffle 1, 2 and 3 and genetic hardening 2. 537 days? I'm not sure but it started with five hundred. 45% cure. Really good.
