The list of outbreaks by region needs to refer to the items in the dated list without copying-and-pasting the existing description. We may need to use in-page links to do that. Olliec (talk) 23:59, 8 December 2015 (PST)

please, what's the relevance of the numbering beside each outbreak ? --Suelala (talk) 18:13, 24 February 2016 (PST)

There is none. It should probably be deleted. We should also begin to add references to each outbreak since most of them where either written up in medical journals or government reports, or at the very least in periodicals of the time. Thank you so much for your help Suelala!! --JenB (talk) 20:19, 24 February 2016 (PST)

I'd like some feedback please, whether the current format, or a sortable table, is a better layout. Table can be re-sorted by date, region, location - but we lose the 'table of contents' summary. See --Suelala (talk) 21:47, 12 May 2016 (PDT)

Would it be possible to have a list of confirmed versus suspected outbreaks? Without extensive sources for each, I fear this doesn't look as credible as it might. -- JaimeS

I think its interesting that only nurses/staff got ill in some hospitals during the outbreak, e.g. 1955 - Durban and Durban City, South Africa Shouldn't there be a lot of infected ill patients
