This datapack adds the infamous Covid-19 disease to minecraft. This is meant to be a joke and not to cause any harm.

How the disease works
The covid-19 disease added by this datapack is based on reality, but changed a bit so that it can fit better into minecraft gameplay. This means that the virus will not last 20 minecraft days (since it would last about 2-3 weeks in real life) and it will be easier to get infected because of the low interactions between and reduced amount of players compared to normal life. Heres some quick facts to help understand:
  • The first bowl of suspicious soup that you eat is garuanteed to give you the virus
    • Every bowl after the first has a chance based on your chance of getting the disease
  • Every 5 seconds, the disease will attempt to spread from entities within 6 blocks of eachother
  • The disease lasts three full minecraft days (60 minutes) unless you die before
  • Dying at any point while infected will not make you more immune to the virus, but will remove it
  • Surviving with the virus for three minecraft days will make you less likely to get it and have milder symptoms if you get it in the future and will remove it

This is a value between zero and four. Players begin with a susceptibility between one and four and it lowers by one every time you survive the virus. You will have no symptoms with a susceptibility of zero, but you can still spread it for three days.

Chance of getting the virus
When the virus attempts to spread for all affected entities every five seconds, this is your chance of being infected.​
