This week, you will write a paper referencing John Snow’s role in the history of infectious disease epidemiology.
Recall the relevant events in London during 1854, the map Snow created, and his findings from his investigation of the cholera outbreak.
Write a 2- to 3-page paper in which you answer the following questions:
- What did Snow do to determine the source of the London cholera outbreak in 1854?
- How would you have applied John Snow’s process if you had been a health official involved with the Disneyland measles outbreak in 2014–2015?
- What type of precautions would you recommend public health officials use to curb the spread of measles in the future?
