ATLANTA (WAOK) – People can now become “disease detectives” with a new iPad app released by the CDC. The free app allows users to examine evidence about outbreaks and make tough decisions. The better the answers, the more quickly the disease is kept from spreading and the more lives are saved. The app also allows scores to be shared on Facebook and Twitter. It’s the latest effort by the federal government to use mobile applications in educating people about public health issues. The “Solve the Outbreak” iPad app is available for free download on iTunes.
