Reducing transmission won’t necessarily help the patient, as they can die in quarantine if they had a superbug.

So clearly in the Malian case, better to reduce and prevention transmission, so that treatment would become efficacious.

To virtually raise your hand, click “reactions” at the bottom of your screen, then “raise hand”

Another consideration on top of virulence is the toxicity of the treatment.

Sounds like an arms race game theory.

I’m very interested in the incentive piece as well

So one aspect of the utility of diagnostics will be the capacity to alter the composition of the microbiome, not sure that we have a lot of success with actually achieving that aim.

There was a paper at SSE this morning in Experimental Evolution session 1 that showed the determinism in a simple microbial community.

What if threw is a vector involved (as in the case of malaria) how does this change the game? Is it just another factor i to be taken into account in the analysis described ?

That’s a great point, Terry. More players in the game.
