Using Cameras To Control Virus Outbreaks

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Apr 08, 2014

More than 600 people got sick on a massive cruise ship outbreak in January 2014. While that might have been a record, it is a serious ongoing problem. Every year about a dozen cruise ships have outbreaks. Though it might not get as much attention as people falling overboard, it is a far more common problem.

Now, a maritime health organization is calling for cameras on ships to also be used for infection control in addition to security.

In this note, we review the report and how cameras can help contain an outbreak.

Carlton, what do you mean by Background near the top of the report? It seems that you are possibly explaining what actually happened on the RC ship based on the mood and tone of the verbs. This is reinforced when you continue in the Problem section with:

Here's why the incident was such a big deal...

But then I think what you are describing is a best case cctv scenario, either that or it didn't do much to contain the virus!

Background = The incident that led to the drafting of the report. I'll clarify that.

And yes the virus was contained. It was determined that she was the index patient. She was quarantined. There were no other cases reported or investigated aboard the ship.
