Description of App

Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to get clues and analyze data to solve the outbreak and save lives! In this fun app, you get to be a Disease Detective. Do you quarantine the village? Interview people who are sick? Run more lab tests? The better your answers, the higher your score - and the quicker you’ll climb the ranks to become a decorated Disease Detective. In level 1, you’ll start as a Trainee and earn badges by solving scenarios — with the goal of earning the top rank: Disease Detective. Unlock Level 2 by mastering all the 12 outbreaks of Level 1. Then earn honors by solving new and more challenging scenarios. Earn recognitions like Surveillance and Treatment Honors. New outbreaks happen every day and CDC's Disease Detectives are on the front lines — working 24/7 to save lives and protect people. When a new outbreak occurs, Disease Detectives are sent in to figure out how the outbreak started before it spreads further. In this app, you'll also: • Learn about diseases and outbreaks in an engaging way. • See how CDC's Disease Detectives save lives around the world. • Have the option to post your scores on Facebook or Twitter and challenge your friends to play!

This is a fun game. The App Store says that the category is Education, but I consider it as a game so it's in the Games category here. It is educational as well as fun.

The version posted is iPad specific, as far as I can tell, no iPhone version for it, at least I couldn't find it yet, I hope I'm wrong and there is an iOS version for this app

Yes, the version is iPad specific, I'm not sure about iPhones. Just search for Solve The Outbreak on the App Store and it will probably show a compatable version.

Just gave it another check on the App Store in the list of CDC developed apps, and Solve the Outbreak isn't even available
This check is done on an iPhone and I'm from Malaysia, though opening the link recently showed the app just fine and downloadable on the App Store, but of course, the get button is dimmed, unless that's an iPad you're viewing it on.
Since the app show up here, that means it's available, but no iPhone client it seems. I guess it's the same everywhere, but you can correct me if that's not the case.
