There is a great deal of variety in how a cloud can become electrified, and the graphic shows an instance in which electrical breakdown traveled from a region of negative charge toward and through a lower region of positive charge.
Particles with a positive charge can penetrate the negatively charged cell membrane, but such particles can't be injected into the body without a "cloak" of some kind because they would also destroy healthy tissues.
