[Off topic] After the events of 1/REmake and before 2/3, how did the city get...

infected? Could someone go over more detail on how it spread, when exactly did it spread? (Was the spread already in motion during the operation in the mansion?)

I am asking here because this appears to be the most active RE board and it's mostly a question about the series, the classic ones though. I didn't play 6.

Rats. You should play ORC a little, even if it's non canon, it DOES explain a few things like this

The virus was spread by rats after Birkin attacked Hunk and his team and broke one of the tubes that contained it... You can see it in Outbreak's intro... Or playing ORC.

Or you can play RE2 since it shows it as well...Not sure why you guys didn't mention it. >_>

The real question is how the city didn't get infected after RE1 because I doubt the mansion exploding killed all the dogs and whatever else in the forest...

Or... RE2. Ada/Claire says this when talking to Annette after the Birkin cutscene: "So the rats were the carriers of the virus?"

And this time!

Well I'm pretty sure the city would've gotten infected regardless, it'd have just taken longer for it to happen if it'd been from the Arklay Mountains.

So a few people got rat bites, turned, & infected the rest?

I always knew about the rats but I never thought about how they actually spread it. I honestly dunno much about rats so I dunno how common it is for them to bite people.

Crows don't always bite people. But when they do, it's because of the T-Virus.

I actually need to play RE2 with the sound higher, I didn't make that out and I replayed 2 scenarios recently.
Is it safe to assume the rats also got infected and became violent?

No, since the rats were in the sewer, they spread it into the water supply. That's why everyone in Outbreak was infected and had to create Daylight.
