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!

Great game...better played on a larger screen
I love this concept for engaging people in the lives of others who are working behind the scenes and protecting our communities from the next big health concern. I am thoroughly enjoying reading about the cases, both historic and fictional, that have their bases in the reality that effects many communities around the world.
My only problem with this game is the fact that I am unable to read many of the games data sheets because the print is too tiny to see. Because of this, I am forced to guess at many of the answers to the questions as a player I am being graded on.
A very good game👍🏻
This game is excellent for kids to learn about, and develops interest in epidemiology, such as what happened to me!😀
Awesome app, fun, interesting, and you can learn a lot!
