I am surprised you got stuck on this level! I'll explain some basic strategy here, which is very logical if you consider that the plagues in this game spread like they do in real life. Consider a coldsore. They spread very easily because people don't realise they have them until after they pass it on. So, the best logic in this is: spread your disease as far as you can without it having symptoms. To do this devolve all of the symptoms as they come up as mutations, and use your DNA to upgrade transmission and abilities. However, remember to keep about 60 to make your disease lethal when you have infected the world. To do this, i upgrade either cold or hot 1 (whichever is not the climate of your start country), land transmission 1, sea transmission 2, air transmission 1, medicine 1, genetics 2. If you started in a rural area, upgrade rodent 1. If you started in an urban country, upgrade land to 2. Always start in a country that is either hot or cold, not balanced. Start in a country that has both a port and an airport. Starting in a poor country means the disease spreads faster. Much of this game is about waiting, resist the temptation to have symptoms until your disease has infected all countries at least 75%. This could take a while. The best way to kill people is:cough, sneeze, weak immune, organ failure. If you still have DNA left, upgrade nausea, diarrhea. This strategy works fairly well on all levels to my knowledge, but i have certainly had success on bacteria normal with it.
