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!

      I followed your instruction and succeed to eleminate all human at the first try. My afroviro first started in east africa (making air/water spread a bit useless), but after spreading into south africa and saudi arabia, the fun began

      So I decided to delete this game and waste money.
