    • This week's disease: Anthrax

      Anthrax is found in animals such as cattle, sheep etc. Humans can be affected if exposed to infected animals.

      There are three types of Anthrax: cutaneous (skin), inhalation and gastro-intestinal (consumption). Anthrax by inhalation is usually fatal.

      Anthrax has been used as a bio-warfare agent.

    • When MacCabe and his team visit the Nigerian butcher shop, a anti-fly/pest zapping light can be seen in the background. This is a no-no in many butcher shops due to health codes and regulations.

    • In reality, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) would handle a case involving Anthrax outbreak since they are outfitted to containing outbreaks, not the NIH (National Institution of Health) since they are mainly used for investigative purposes where there isn't a threat to the public.
