Plague Inc: Evolved takes the plot from an epidemic pathogen on the first infected patient named “Patient Zero”, players will use bacteria, viruses, … to create a pandemic with the goal of destroying the human beings.

Each place will have its own weaknesses and strengths such as poor countries in Africa, which have high temperatures, but lack of water resources, so upgrading the disease can resist high temperatures and spread through domestic water. .
Or European countries with cold climates, with high technology, must upgrade resistance and cold resistance. Greenland is arguably the hardest place in the game because of the harsh conditions and only one airport, making it very difficult for the disease to reach.
