CDC Introduces New Disease-Fighting App

Disease detection is not easy for a layman. But, a new app would make each and everyone an expert in the field. Yes! You can now play a disease detective at home.

The report has uncovered that a free app has been launched by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The app dubbed "Solve the Outbreak" would run on the iPad.

It is being hoped that the app would help people in their twenties as well as the teenagers to learn about infectious diseases. Also, they would get to know the way different infections spread.

The app would make users an Epidemic Intelligence Service agent. They would all be able to examine different variables of a growing epidemic of a disease on the basis of their factual information. The CDC told that the users would also be making decisions just akin to a CDC official.

The app that went live this week has been developed in-house by the CDC. Any estimate related to the app's development costs would not be provided by the group.

Three outbreak scenarios are comprised in the app and more are on the plans. It has been told that once a person clears easier cases and becomes a bug isolating expert, he could post the same on Facebook and Twitter.
