3. The sickness will last for several days after treatment begins.4. Yes. Antibiotics and supportive therapies can ease symptoms and cure the disease. D.1. The city should immediatley disperse surgical masks to prevent the spread of the disease and immediatley hospitalize patients in isolation from others to cure them and prevent spread of the disease. 2. I would implement my strategy by making the city drop all other tasks and have police quaritine the city keeping people out and keeping people from leaving. I would also have police and firemen distributing the masks.
