This is another one of the very precise sequence-of-events based achievements with the zombie virus (Necroa). Here is what you need to do.

Start with the following genes:

ATP Boost (for early DNA points)
Spliced Activation (in all honesty, this one does not particularly matter, I have gotten it both with and without this gene)

1.) Start a game with the Necroa Virus, on Casual.
2.) Make sure to start in the Ukraine, where Chernobyl is located.
3. ) Within the first 60 days evolve the Saliva I and Zoonotic Shift transmissions.
4.) Shortly thereafter, a pop-up saying "Chernobyl tourist recovered from attack..." will appear.
5.) A bit later (ensure you are devolving any symptoms that may spring up during this time) you should get two more messages:

One stating a Chernobyl group was attacked by wild dogs.
Another stating that the military was deployed in Chernobyl due to the rabid animals.

Time to get busy. Save up 44 points or so and evolve the following:

Cytopathic Reanimation

6.) This is an optional step. In some games, the zombie population grows so quickly, the Ukraine government falls and this achievements necessary story steps stop working. To prevent this, evolve the Horde Instinct, Horde Mentality, Horde Vocalization and Horde Pheromones abilities. Then work to send zombies out of the country to other locations as need be to keep the population down. This was not a problem for me, but apparently is for others.

7.) After the zombies start running around, you should have three popups appear:

The plague originated in Chernobyl
Chernobyl animals infected with the plague.
Chernobyl animal tests successful.

8.) When you see the third step, evolve the transmissions:

Blood I
Air I
Blood 2
Air 2
Air 3

9.) Eventually another pop-up should appear, saying the Chernobyl animal autopsy infected the research lab.

10.) Then your achievement should pop!
