Before doing this I suggest you remove all your save games. This is because we will be saving and loading a lot and the game is much faster at doing that if you only have 1 save game.

During this game don't devolve the symptoms that mutate automatically. They could turn out to be the key for win to you.

Note: If you need to unlock all the genes you can exploit the save system. Just play a casual/normal difficulty game and when you're about to win save the game. When you win just load up the save and you get another win. You unlock a random gene every time you win a game.
Note 2: If you don't get this on first try just try it again. Each game is different and even if you load a game from save file the rest of the game plays differently than last time. The game has a lot of different variables that affect your gameplay.

ATP Boost

1. Start your disease in China
2. Evolve Symptom > Rash
3. Evolve Symptom > Sweating
- At this point you will want to save your game so you don't have to evolve Rash and Sweating again.

5. Start evolving Abilities > Spore Bursts
- Now this is the awesome part. A Spore Burst will randomly infect one country on the map. What we want to do now is evolve the Bursts one at a time. So first evolve a Burst. Then check the map and see which country gets infected. If you get an island country then immediately [SAVE GAME] and overwrite your last save game.

If you don't get an island country infected then evolve another Spore Burst. Do this three times so that you have evolved three Spore Bursts. If you don't get any island countries with the three bursts then [LOAD GAME] and start over. Remember to only evolve one Burst at a time and check the new infected country.

You will want to infect ALL of the island countries by doing this. When evolving Spore Eruptions you should get at least 1 or 2 island countries before you proceed.

These are the countries you want to infect with Spore Bursts and Spore Eruptions: Greenland, Iceland, Caribbean, New Guinea, New Zealand, Madagascar and Philippines. Of course Japan is also a plus but not requires since it can get infected rather easily anyways.

This is what my map looked like at this point:

6. After you have infected all the island countries evolve Symptoms > Skin Lesions

7. Evolve Abilities > Drug Resistance 1
8. Evolve Abilities > Cold Resistance 1
9. Evolve Transmission > Bird 1
10. Evolve Transmission > Bird 2
11. Evolve Transmission > Insect 1
12. Evolve Transmission > Water 1
13. Evolve Transmission > Livestock 1
14. Evolve Transmission > Livestock 2
15. Evolve Abilities > Drug Resistance 2
16. Evolve Abilities > Cold Resistance 2
17. Evolve Symptoms > Coughing
18. Evolve Symptoms > Pneumonia
19. Evolve Symptoms > Pulmonary Fibrosis
20. Evolve Symptoms > Total Organ Failure
21. Evolve Transmission > Rodent 1
22. Evolve Transmission > Blood 1
23. Evolve Transmission > Air 1
24. Evolve Abilities > Heat Resistance 1
25. Evolve Abilities > Heat Resistance 2
26. Evolve Abilities > Environmental Hardening
27. Evolve Symptoms > Coma
28. Evolve Symptoms > Hemorrhagic Shock

If you're getting trouble with Cure then feel free to upgrade also Abilities > Genetic Hardening 1 & 2.
Thanks to LightHordy for the save game tip and Yo It's Spicy for the basic strategy:

If you are this far I assume you did the save cheat to get all the boosts

Metabolic Jump
Genetic Mimic

Start: China

Buy spore bursts until you have done all 15.

Hopefully you get a few of the islands, as they are worst to get.

Devolve only if you have not been seen. (I did have some luck devolving the very first symptom to get me some extra time before being seen)

Also pay attention to the random events, as you may need to do something unplanned, IE devolve a symptom to make cure go slower(fever is pretty common).

I was able to buy cold 1 and heat 1 with only 8 total people infected.

Cold 1
Heat Resistance 1
Drug Resistance 1

These are first is once the starting country hits a certain point you will be seen, so you need to it to move as fast as possible

Bird 1
Water 1
Air 1

Once you are found:
Genetic Hardening 1 and 2

Drug resist 2

Cold 2 Gets greenland infected faster
Bird 2 May be needed for Caribbean

Evolve any that were not mutated:

Immunne system suppresion

You may want to slow down to speed 2 if you start getting a lot of points so the Cure doesnt creep on you

Genetic Reshuffle 1
Reshuffle as needed

One you are close to 100% infected(You can do this earlier than you think, it gives you extra pts, and if you are infecting fast enough at ~90% it will get you the win and slow cure to a crawl):

Total organ failure

If any part of Africa is moving slowly to get fully infected, use Blood 1

THis should be enough to kill off everyone, if not just buy anything you can to get lethality up.

This worked for me the first time, then it took a few retries as one country would not get infected, also made a few tweaks.
