  1. Select two diseases that are listed down the left side of the page – make sure there were actual cases reported on those diseases by noting a number in the second column titled “current week.”
  2. Summarize the nature of your two selected diseases uses scholarly sources (i.e. what is the disease, what are the symptoms, how does one obtain it)
  3. Explain the trend in reported cases of the two diseases (you will need to review the other columns in the chart to find this information)
