Dean: A demonic virus?
Sam: Yeah, more like demonic germ warfare.
Dean and Sam
in Croatoan

The Croatoan Virus is a demonic virus that infects people and turns them into murderous rabid creatures with varying degrees of intelligence, ranging from cruel and cunning to savage and mindless. It is transmitted through blood to blood contact. However, Sam Winchester is shown to be immune to its effect. Lucifer, Azazel, and Pestilence hoped to use this virus to wreak havoc on Earth during the Apocalypse, but it was averted by Sam, BobbyDean, and Castiel. Those with demon blood are immune.

Overview

Croatoan

Dad always had a theory about Croatoan. He thought it was a demon's name, sometimes known as Deva or sometimes Reshef - a demon of plague and pestilence.
Sam to Dean
in Croatoan
Sulfur2

Sulfur traces in a blood sample infected with Croatoan virus.

The Winchester brothers arrived at River Grove, Oregon, following a vision Sam had of Dean killing a man. As the entire town began to turn, Sam and Dean retreated to a local clinic where a doctor was studying the blood of an infected person and found traces of sulfur in the blood, which lead to the brothers concluding that a demon was at work.

The virus is spread by blood to blood contact and usually takes three to four hours for the symptoms and sulfur to manifest. However, Sam, who had blood contact with one of the infected people, showed none of the symptoms, even after five hours following his infection. When the doctor ran tests to check his blood, she found no traces of sulfur at all.

Near the end, it is revealed that the one responsible behind this virus is Duane Tanner, the man whom Sam saw Dean kill and who was in fact possessed. Communicating with the Yellow-Eyed Demon by the means of the Goblet of Blood, Duane informed the Yellow-Eyed Demon that "The Winchester boy is immune, as expected."

The End

In the alternate future, the virus had been released in 2014 by Lucifer and had infected many people around the world, during the Apocalypse. Those who were infected, called "croats", were shot on sight. A news report mentions the virus has just reached Australia at the time Dean appears. Following an outbreak in Houston, President Palin ordered its bombing. Future Dean also shot one of his men, who was infected, without warning.

The Devil You Know

Pestilence has been causing mass outbreaks of the Swine Flu as part of a bigger plan Pestilence is working to spread the Croatoan Virus. Having infiltrated a major drug company, Pestilence's servant Brady and a few other demons have begun testing the virus on unsuspecting humans in the labs at night, with the eventual plan being to disperse the virus among regular swine flu vaccines to cause a mass outbreak.

Two Minutes to Midnight
