Going to post a question to keep the marathon going!

List four ways to implement control/prevention measures and communicate findings for a MERS outbreak if a known source is tourists who recently visited the Middle East.
"One of the ways that I believe people express their appreciation to the rest of humanity is to make something wonderful and put it out there."

Here's another question.
At a Marriott hotel in Seattle, Washington, multiple guests developed a headache and a severe fever. This occurred in late December 2002. Later, the disease was identified as X. pseudonymous. Please write a case definition.
Go HVS Dolphins!

That's correct! For horizontal transmission, just remember that it's transmitted from one individual to another in the same generation.
Your turn.
