Not everyone can see the virus runner:

I will say that this change does tend to make Tacs a little worse at running the virus, if not useless. The issue was not that the flag carrier was invisible, but that the stealth powers, when combined, make Tacs completely invisible - that's a problem regardless of a Tac having the virus or not.

I would suggest, instead, what other CtF games do: announce that someone has the virus. As soon as someone downloads it, a message pops across the screen, just like the "Player has killed Other Player" messages.
