After learning how to launch an attack, the number of people infected by the outbreak decreases. Lastly, the Monster attacks. More people become infected and a mini outbreak monster appears. Next, an event card appears stating that the Outbreak Squad is lacking medical supplies therefore all medical abilities are decreased by half during the next round.
