Patient Outbreak Report Medical Interventions October 4, 2012 Period 6 I. Introduction This investigation started when a group of students at Chancellor University were reporting to the college infirmary with various symptoms for medical treatment. The symptoms and brief information of the relations f the students were recorded and taken into account. Diagnoses were deduced from the list of symptoms of the patients being grouped into common groups i.e fevers, lethargy, sore throat. Some DNA sequence were provided for a number of students that were in the infirmary, which allowed us to run a specific test on them to diagnose the patient with a specific pathogen or disease.
