How long does it take for a person to get infected in The Last of Us?
In the universe of The Last of Us there is a dangerous outbreak caused by the Cordyceps fungus, which is capable of affecting the behavior of humans. He controls them until they become totally disfigured and extremely aggressive creatures. So the survivors must avoid being bitten or attacked by the infected.
The poster in question explains how long it takes for a person to completely lose control after an attack. The image issued by the Federal Disaster Response Agency (FEDRA) reveals that the infection process is faster or slower depending on whether the wound is near or far from the head.
So, if an infected person attacks you on the neck, face or head, it will take between 5 and 15 minutes to be fully infected. On the other hand, if the wound is an arm, torso, shoulder or hand, the process can take between 2 and 8 hours.
Lastly, if the attack occurs on a leg or foot, then the infection will take 12-24 hours to complete. This information could imply changes with respect to what was seen in the games and a clear example is the case of Tess.
