Patient Zero is a virtual pandemic simulator where you get to infect real players. Infections get transferred by players coming within proximity of each other in the real world. Players infected with your virus will carry it and infect more players. See how quickly your unique virus spreads!


Three different virus types, each with unique properties.

Leaderboard showing the most infectious strain.

Live map view to aid in spreading your infection.

Global infection map - See how far your virus has spread!

Carrier status information - See what you're infected with.

Text to speech enabled devices will even say player names as you infect them.

NOTE: Other players will not be able to get your exact location, only a general idea. GPS and network location are supported.

Finally, showing up to work with a nasty infection will no longer be frowned upon! The more players you infect, the greater chance your virus will become an unstoppable pandemic. Infect someone at the airport before they board a plane and the real fun starts! Try actively spreading your infection while you commute to work!

Remember, this is a beta and not the finished product. There will be issues and I'm working as fast as I can to resolve them. Thanks for your patience! Email me with questions and feedback.

New features the community demands are actively being developed!

    App has to be open for it to work. I went to Toronto after checking to see how many ppl there were playing (tons). Upon returning home no one has been infected.

    I really liked it, it has lots of potential, but that's it. Lots of potential. There needs to be more people playing and more customisation.

    Hey guys, tell all your friends about this. Summer is around the corner and when summer hits, people travel far distances. Infect your friends and if they go out of state, let's hope your Infection goes cross country.

    Great idea, but the number of players is too low to be effective and the game is not actively maintained. There hasn't been an update in over two years.

    This is a fun app to run. I was surprised when one day someone transmitted my virus up the east coast. :) It's definitely inspired me to be more creative with my route home a few times. I'm experiencing no issues with it so far.
