The Parasite is an unlockable plague type in Plague Inc. and Plague Inc: Evolved.

Unlike other pathogens, the parasite and its style of life prevent it from gaining DNA points from infections. It makes up for this however by having low severity, allowing to avoid detection and lower cure priority. Like the previous three disease types, Parasite has all the same Transmissions, Symptoms, and Abilities. Its general low severity also makes it hard for it to be detected, allowing it to spread far before government notices it. It also gains a large number of DNA while infecting, allowing it to improve its Transmission ability and the lethality of its symptoms.

Special AbilityEdit

  • Symbiosis 1-3: Makes the parasite more in tune with its respective host, so its gets harder to detect and cure. 

StrategyEdit

For more information, please see Strategy guide/Parasite.

TriviaEdit

  • Unlike conventional parasites whose goal is to live off the host for as long as possible, Plague Inc's version of a parasite is more similar to a parasitoid, which eventually kills off its hosts.
