Outline of presentation The SARS pandemic outbreak provided a ream where students and medical professions can understand the disease in a depth manner. This presentation covers five major areas in the study of the SARS pandemic. The initial stage will incorporate the overall background information of SARS in Epiville; here, aspects like case-definition, factors leading to the spread of SARS will be evaluated. The second part will incorporate techniques used in the stimulation of the SARS pandemic. Under this category, the article will discuss emphases on different surveillance types and the possible working hypothesis. The third looks at case-control design. This part looks at the incubation period and the mode of transmission of the SARS disease. The fourth part is a management outbreak control that looks at the best methods to analyze and control the SARS outbreak. Lastly, the paper looks at the overall general knowledge attained from the lesson itself. D. background of the Epiville SARS simulation D1.
