Don’t use ‘Plague Inc.’ smartphone game to predict coronavirus, developer says


Developers behind the popular smartphone game Plague Inc. are trying to put a damper on their own viral success, amid a surge in interest related to the coronavirus outbreak spreading from China in recent weeks.

The game challenges users to infect — and ultimately wipe out — all human life on Earth, using the realistic transmission and mutation mechanics of various diseases. Each game starts with an infection in one country, and users spread that infection by mutating the disease to add transmission vectors and symptoms.
