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!

Interesting, Informative, and Fun. Good app.
I liked it. It was informative, it had a lot of interesting content, and it is free without those in app purchases I'm getting sick of.
It's one of the few apps I have no regrets about getting. I would recommend it to people interested in how disease control ACTUALLY works.
This app "dumbs it down" for non-medical students. In saying that, I wish there would be a few more stages. After I solve all of the disease outbreaks, it just gets repetitive and then I delete it. Please add more, then I'll put a 5th star to my rating.
Very nice. Good information
This app is very fun as well as educational. It increases awareness about illnesses we may come in contact with everyday. I use this app to educate myself in logic and analytic skills. This app is extremely neat
