This is another one of the very precise sequence-of-events based achievements with the zombie virus (Necroa), similar to my other solution for Breathe Deep. Here is what you need to do.

Start with the following genes:

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

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:

Insomnia
Fever
Photophobia
Delirium
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 a popup appear:

The plague originated in Chernobyl

8.) At this point, immediately devolve Zoonotic Shift.

9.) Shortly thereafter, another pop-up should appear, saying apparently there is no link to the animals spreading this disease.

Then your achievement should unlock.

The Plague Inc. Wikia gets the credit on this one.

Have fun infecting the world!
