As a result of three years of solid research on the t-Virus, the research moves into the second stage.
The virus becomes stable enough and the first zombies are created as a result. However, the virus could only infect 90% of the population. Spencer is disappointed by this and wants a virus that can wipe out an entire population.
People at the Aklay Research Facility 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.
