This is by far the hardest DarkWater achievement, you will have to reload several times to get the timing right on this.

Start a new game on Necora Virus normal difficulty.

Choose any mutations you want.

You have to choose USA to start

Now when the game begins you have 60 days (2 months) from your starting date to unlock the Saliva Transmission (6 points) and the Drug resistance I ability (9 points).

Check your dates and make sure you got these within 60 days if not start a new game.
If you did get it right within a few more days you'll get a message about DarkWater being concerned.
