The continuing effect for Chronic Effect reads: During infections, when a Virulent Strain disease city is drawn, place 2 Virulent Strain disease cubes if the city has no Virulent Strain cubes (otherwise, place 1 cube normally). This does not affect Epidemics or Outbreaks.

If the Virulent Strain has been eradicated and a city has no cubes on it during an infection, is Chronic Effect negated by the eradication of the Virulent Strain or would you place 2 cubes in that city even though it has been eradicated?

Eradication means that cubes are not placed for that color via infections (or epidemics) and therefore Chronic Effect -- which takes place *during infections* -- has no effect on an eradicated Virulent Strain.

If the Virulent Strain became un-eradicated, due to Hidden Pocket, then Chronic Effect would affect future Virulent Strain infections.
