Good but confused...
So I beat level one in a hour, and I'm not sure how to get to level two. If you could make an update with an explanation of how to get to level two, I would appreciate it. Also, make future levels harder, more personal, take longer, and be more widespread. The player could have to convince the CDC/public they needed more funding, and depending on how much they could convince them, the more workers, labs, etc. They would get. Also, you should be able to see what happens when it goes what you want and not get an INCORRECT thing that makes you do the right one anyway/alternate endings where the disease
kills off all it's hosts or the player becomes infected and others rush to help with sometimes bad decisions. Thanks for reading!
Thank you so much, this program is so well done, I love learning new things, and have always been interested in medical information.
It really perks up my brain..and sweeps away the dust...you really have spent quality time on this program and I hope that who ever has made this program
Is highly appreciated. I'm sure it was designed by many talented people, so thank you to all..I can continue to learn and I will highly recommend this to others!
Limited chelation supplies in Mass Casualty Incident
I liked the 1st exercise but, before going on to the 3rd exercise I need to comment on exercise #2. In an MCI with limited supplies and irreversible effects from heavy metal poisoning, I would choose to treat patients with potential for greater survivability and quality of life. So I must respectfully disagree with a civilian CDC approach in favor of a field medicine approach.
