Question for Pokemon Gold

Hi, I recently my Crabby & [red] Gyarados caught pokerus, & shortly after, whilest I was training my togepi [at nightime] I ran into a silver spinarak. I was wondering if Pokerus increases your chances of finding a shiny pokemon?

No but getting a shiny Pokemon is luck it's like picking a ace out of a hat form a deck of 52 so the percentage is like 4% of the time out of 52.

No. Pokérus just makes your Pokémon level up quicker and have better stats.
