Sneezing is a tier 2 symptom. It causes disease-laden fluid to fly everywhere. It increases infectivity rates by a small amount, while barely increasing severity. This makes it a useful symptom for increasing infectivity in the higher difficulties except for Mega-Brutal (where you can be detected without any severity), while producing little chance of detection.

In Real LifeEdit

Sneezing is the irritation of your nasal passages, and then the ejection of whatever was in your nose.

Trivia Edit

  • This symptom also appeared in Pandemic 2, the description is: "SNEEZING WILL HELP SPREAD YOUR DISEASE, BUT IS A NOTICEABLE SYMPTOM. SNEEZING IS CAUSED BY THE NASAL MUCOSA BEING IRRITATED BY FOREIGN PARTICLES, RESULTING IN AN EXPULSION OF AIR FROM THE LUNGS".
