Select an infectious disease and research the CDC website for information about the disease including:

  • presenting symptoms, and
  • outbreak characteristics
  • Identify an occurrence of the disease by searching the Internet for recent reports of this disease and compare that episode or occurrence with information from the CDC website.
  • How closely did that outbreak resemble the case definition?
