Quantum Virus. Super Transmission.
A virus capable of existing in multiple states at any given time. including lethal and non lethal, It is also able to move instantaneously to any probable position within the known universe, but perhaps in this case restricted by earth's gravity.

Transmission

Super Positioning - significantly harder to detect. Will transmit to any random location on earth.

Quantum Trajectory - increases land and border transmission. More likely to infect neighbouring countries.

Eye Contact - when observing transmission the virus takes a single position and as a result is able to hitch a ride on reflected photons delivering small packets of infectious information which can add up and increase infectivity especially in high density areas.

Backing story
Suspending a cat between life and death is one of the best-known thought experiments in quantum mechanics.

Now researchers from Germany and Spain are proposing a real experiment to probe whether a virus can exist in a superposition of two quantum states. Such superpositions are typically the domain of smaller, inanimate objects such as atoms. But the team believes that their technique, using finely tuned lasers, will soon allow for the superposition of something much closer to a living organism. They outline the experiment in a paper posted to the arXiv pre-print server1.

At its most fundamental level, quantum mechanics says that particles can only exist in discrete states. For example, researchers can measure the direction a particle spins as either 'up' or 'down', but nothing in between. Yet, as long as no one is looking, the particle exists in a combination of both states simultaneously, a strange blend known as a superposition.

In the 1930s, Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger described the now-famous cat experiment, intending it as a caution against applying quantum rules to the real, 'classical' world. He imagined placing a cat inside a box that contains a vial of hydrogen cyanide. A hammer, suspended above the vial, would be set to smash it if triggered by the decay of a tiny chunk of radioactive material.

As long as the box is closed, the radioactive material behaves like a spinning particle because it exists in two states — decayed or not decayed. That means the cat is left in a limbo of being simultaneously dead and not dead. Only when scientists actually measure whether the radioactive substance has decayed will the superposition break down into one or other of the two possibilities.

Oriol Romero-Isart at the Max Plank Institute for Quantum Physics in Garching, Germany, and his colleagues now say they hope to attempt a similar 'Schrödinger's virus' experiment in the lab.

Chilled out virus

The team hope to trap a virus in a vacuum using an electromagnetic field created by a laser. Then, with another laser, the team would slow down the virus's movement until it sits motionless in its lowest possible energy state.

Once the virus is fixed, the team will use a single photon to put the virus into a quantum superposition of two states, where it is either moving or not. Until it is measured, the virus should exist in a superposition of motion and stillness.

The team suggest that tobacco mosaic virus, a rod-shaped plant virus measuring about 50 nanometres wide and almost 1 micrometre long, would be an ideal candidate for the experiment. While there is still debate about whether such viruses can really be classed as alive, the experiment could even be extended to tiny organisms, the scientists say. Microscopic tardigrades, or water-bears, can survive in the vacuum of space for days, and may be suitable for the same sort of Schrödinger treatment.

Other physicists are sceptical about how much the experiment will show. There's no reason to believe that a virus would behave any differently than a similar-sized inanimate object, says Martin Plenio a physicist at Imperial College in London. "I'm absolutely convinced that a virus would behave exactly the same as an inorganic molecule," he says.

Still, he concedes, testing relatively large objects, whether viruses or molecules, could prove interesting. According to quantum mechanics, it should be possible for macroscopic objects like cars and people to enter superpositions, but that never appears to happen. Studying relatively large objects, says Plenio, may help physicists learn where the quantum world ends and the our macroscopic world begins.

RE: Quantum Virus. Super Transmission.
Shrodingers Virus -

A virus is trapped in a vacuum and lasers fired upon it. This causes the virus to inherit quantum traits of superpositioning. From here the virus begins to rapidly transmit to every country on earth. It will be harder as all your transmission dna will be available early game. So the bulk of your decisions are made pretty early on and from then on a slow influx of dna helps maintain the tacticability of game play.

Super Positioning - significantly harder to detect. Will transmit to any random location on earth.

Quantum Trajectory - increases land and border transmission. More likely to infect neighbouring countries.

Quantum Stability - Virus transmits with more success within a concentrated location.

Eye Contact I - when observing transmission the virus takes a single position and as a result is able to hitch a ride on reflected photons delivering small packets of infectious information which can add up and increase infectivity especially in high density areas.

Eye Contact II - increases information stored in photons. Increasing infectivity. High density.

Eye Contact III - but a glance is enough to transmit virus. Increased infectivity. High density.

Blood I - Virus transmit through blood to blood contact.
Blood II - virus transmits via other bodily fluids.
+
Water I - able to survive outside the body in warm water.
Water II - able to survive in contaminated waters.
=
Extreme Aquasol - Able to survive in a variety of liquids from salt water to sulphuric acid. Humid.


Symptoms similar to meningitis.

Perhaps fly transmission also.

Special Abilities increase mutations and evasion liklihood. 50% chance an infected person is analysed and diagnosed as healthy. As they are both infected and not infected at the same time.


Essentially I am trying to present the concept of a strain of meningitis that alone cannot infect the world until it has been given the ability to go into a state of super positioning. Only then is it strong enough to escape its vacuum and wipe out humanity.
