The virus is not really some deadly virus; it was all a bluff so Snake would cooperate. Snake Plissken gets ahold of the real doomsday device remote control. The President's daugher is about to be executed. Plissken activates the device and shuts down everything on Earth.
Utopia: He did it. He shut down the Earth!
Trivia: Kurt Russell kept the outfit he wore in Escape from New York. The very first day of shooting Escape from L.A., he stepped out of his trailer in that very same outfit for shooting. He and producer Debra Hill looked at each other and began laughing. Debra Hill said it was like going into a time machine.
