MedMyst Mission 2: Peril in Prokaryon

An outbreak of illness hits a refugee camp and the local population worries about the spread of the deadly disease. Scholars virtually travel to the area to determine what causes the disease and how it is spread. Next, they must put measures in place to prevent a larger outbreak before the conflict between populations escalates. The second mission in a seven part series requires applying knowledge in order to save virtual lives.
