Very informative and engaging. Although I'm not US citizen, the practice and legal framework of the US that is being used to counter-act epidemic/pandemic diseases would help me understand how different parties can work collectively to control and contain the diseases. Thank you professors!

I want to give 4 stars because this course teaches you many concepts in a short time. In a very understandable way.

An excellent course, very nice learning experience.. thanks

there is too much about inside rule of US. I did not find that interesting or useful for me.
