Disease detectives often do several parts of an outbreak investigation at the same time.

Which of the following steps are they likely to do simultaneously?

A. Publish results of the study.
B. Interview new cases.
C. Conduct the environmental study.
D. Research similar outbreaks.
E. Identify new cases.
F. Plan the study design.
D. Research similar outbreaks. & F. Plan the study design.
General Order:
[list=1][*]Identify new cases.
[*]Research similar outbreaks.
[*]Plan the study design.
[*]Interview new cases.
[*]Conduct the environmental study.
[*]Publish results of the study.[/list]
I've probably messed up somewhere here.
So much to do, so little time.

B, C, D, and E can all be done at the same time.
Looking back at it, I'm not sure this was a particularly good question :? . Your turn.

What's the difference between the three main types of influenza viruses?

What's the difference between the three main types of influenza viruses?
Influenza A: categorized into subtypes, which are based off of the variations in the virus's surface proteins (hemagglutinin and neuraminidase) and into lineages; is usually the virus behind the "flu season" and has caused pandemics
Influenza B: categorized into lineages and strains, causes symptoms similar to those of Influenza A
Influenza C: causes the mildest symptoms, are not thought to have caused any pandemics
