- Dave Johnson is born.
- As a result of three years of solid research on the t-Virus, research at the Arklay facility moves into the second stage.
- The virus becomes stable enough and the first zombies are created as a result. However, the virus can only infect 90% of the population. Spencer is disappointed by this and wants a virus that can wipe out an entire population.
- Young genius Alexia Ashford at only 10 years old, is appointed Senior researcher at the Umbrella Rockfort Training Facility.
- People at the Arklay Laboratory ponder if more success would be achieved if Alexia was present, which annoys Birkin immensely. Birkin moves too fast in his research for the specimens to survive, much to Wesker's annoyance. Yet Lisa Trevor survived all that she was infected with. Wesker questions how she can survive such exposure to so much of the virus.
