Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to get clues and analyze data to solve the outbreak and save lives! In this fun app, you get to be the Disease Detective.

Do you quarantine the village? Interview people who are sick? Run more lab tests? The better your answers, the higher your score - and the quicker you’ll climb the ranks to become a decorated Disease Detective. In level 1, you’ll start out as a Trainee and can earn badges by solving scenarios, with the goal of earning the top rank: Disease Detective.

Unlock Level 2 by mastering all 12 outbreaks. Then earn honors by solving new and more challenging scenarios. Earn recognitions like Surveillance Honors and Treatment Honors.

New outbreaks happen every day, and CDC's Disease Detectives are on the front lines, working 24/7 to save lives and protect people. When a new outbreak happens, Disease Detectives are sent in to figure out how the outbreak started before it spreads further.

In this app, you'll also:

・ Learn about diseases and outbreaks in an engaging way.
・ See how CDC's Disease Detectives save lives around the world.
・ Post your scores on Facebook or Twitter and challenge your friends to play!

I thought being a detective would be boring! This app is very interactive and is very helpful! Once you start, you can't stop!
I hope you keep adding more outbreaks!
This is really a great learning tool!

I Love This App!

Way to go, CDC! Your online zombie preparedness campaign was excellent but this app is wonderful. It's accurate, engaging, and educational. I use it all the time with my high school epidemiology class and they love it. Please make a 3rd level asap!!!
