For #3, are you referring to Influenza A, B, or C? I feel like Influenza's teams all have a pretty good shot at Nats this year, and I'm not clear on which of their teams you're referring to
I think all, given that they seem to be stacking like they always do.

EDIT: Based off invitational performances, they seem to be very strong this year, though still trailing behind COVID-19 and Nobody.
COVID-19's performance this year has been nothing to sneeze at (honestly, it might be the best anyone has seen since Ebola 2014), but I think Influenza will give them a run for their money. You can never count out the ol' Flu.

The event I'm really keeping an eye out for at Nats is Disease Detectives. Both COVID and Flu are sickeningly good at this event, and I think whoever wins DD is likely to win the whole tourney.
In fact, it may be the strongest showing by _any_ team since 1918, when the Spanish flu made the scariest campaign to take over everyone else. More recently, the 1918 flu's younger sibling (the Swine Flu) made a team, and won in 2009, but it seems that COVID-19 might have a stronger performance than Swine Flu.

I would say that Ebola looked to be an extremely strong team, and had a very impressive invitational season, but couldn't get off the ground for most events later on in their campaign.

I don't know about you guys, but I feel like Corona Virus might be a bit more dominant than this "COVID-19" at nats.

While the comments personifying COVID-19 as a team are not made with ill intent, please refrain from them considering the seriousness of the outbreak and its effect our communities emotionally.
