I just suddenly started thinking about this, what qualities do you think a disease would need to wipe out the human race and why? I'd imagine that at the very least it would need to have an immunity to all antibiotics, a long incubation period during which it is still infectious and to be both airborne and able to infect pretty much all animal species.

You need to play the Plague Inc games, Withers. [http://www.ndemiccreations.com...] It's a strategic simulation where the whole point is to wipe out humanity with various kinds of diseases and parasites. :)

Although it's (naturally) a simplified take on epidemiology, it picks up on some key ideas -- like the idea that a pathogen really needs to take advantage of the lead time between detection, realisation of the full morbidity, and quarantine/prevention/treatment measures being instituted. Really, the plague needs to expand internationally through stealth, then crash economies and civic infrastructure fast enough to cripple effective social response.

I have played it but I was wondering if the few features of a response which the game doesn't simulate would prove important to the spread, such as internal quarantines within countries or just simple things such as basic hygiene which in real life tends to have a much bigger impact than in the game, probably because if they really represented that in the game it would be virtually impossible.

I realise our topic is real epidemiology rather than a game, but there are state-level factors representing internal quarantine and a game parameter for basic hygeine. it's quite an effective educational tool in making players think about key factors that might apply, though running as it does as a smartphone app, I'm not suggesting that it's a precise, accurate or comprehensive simulation. :D

Regarding modeling real-world epidemiological spread, there are some interesting papers around, for example a literature survey at: [http://iscram2015.uia.no...], and a discussion about the intersection of epidemiology and economics at: [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...].

Regarding validation of the premise itself, there's some thought that background extinctions may sometimes be viral in nature. [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...]. Whether primates have ever seen such an event, and whether a globally-distributed species like humanity, with disparate food-sources and diverse climates might be affected, I don't know.

Just on a slightly different topic I've been wondering if I should get plague inc evlved, do you know if it is good enough that it is worth another "11.99 or should I stick with just Plague inc?

Thanks, I will read through these at some point, though it might not be for a while as really I should be revising right now.

Plague Inc Evolved gives you the ability to seed a zombie apocalypse, along with some other interesting challenges for parasites. :)

With that said, I uninstalled the game at the recommendation of my phone security app, because it was demanding permissions it didn't need.

Oh, right! So it's learning-revision, rather than writing-revision!

I come from the Australian education system. It doesn't use A- and O-levels, though I have some understanding of them. I hold a PhD in Informatics, and have worked as a research scientist, an educator, engineer, consultant and business executive. (Though these days I spend more time on the humanities, like fiction, history and music.)

Please accept my best wishes for your studies. If there's anything in the STEM space you'd like advice or context on, please feel free to post questions here.

You need to try "Plague inc"!

But yeah, to wipe out all humans, it would probably need to be able to travel long distances in the air, and probably be transmittable by a bunch of other ways

More backwards thinking.
Its bad diet, pollution and chemicals that cause all disease. Germs only appear to clean up the mess.

A disease would not need to directly affect humans to wipe out human life. Consider, for instance, a virus or other pathogen that killed all (or even most) marine algae. Algae forms the base of all oceanic food webs, which would subsequently collapse. Food webs on land would soon follow. In addition, a majority of the Earth's atmospheric and oceanic oxygen is produced by algae. Take away the algae, and oxygen levels drop, CO2 levels rise, with disastrous results for the entire ecosystem.

Marine algae are not prone to infections because infections are only a human problem created by a bad diet. Thus, the last response is illogical and nonsensical. Horses for courses! Please!

Viral. little or no immediate symptoms. long incubation period. Quick death after symptoms appear. Airborne at the very least, maybe waterborne.

I wonder if a foreign disease to earth (from Mars? Aliens?) Could do this. Unlikely to be a consideration for a good long time though

You don't have to worry about a disease from Mars coming to Earth and killing all humans. This was a concern of H. G. Wells in The War of The Worlds. This is just science fiction and has nothing to do with science or reality about germs. Germs are totally ineffective at causing harm to humans. If you get sick it is because you ate something inappropriate to the human digestive system. Humans are arrogant nincompoops that keep filling themselves up with nice tasting rubbish and then wonder why they get sick. The medical authorities are glad to take their money and give them some bogus concoctions to allegedly fix the problem.

If any germs came from outer space they would be just as harmless as the Earth based variety of germs. lol Childish nonsense!!!!!

Really? Have you actually read the book? Wells showed that it was the germs on earth that eventually killed the invading aliens, that germs were a gift from God to protect humans from Mars attacks.

Sorry, but there are many people who eat very well, yet they die of diseases and ailments of the body that have nothing to do with what they eat.

The germs on Earth haven't and can't kill humans so how are they going to hurt or kill aliens? Its a bad diet that causes 98 % of all disease. The remaining 2 % is caused by fecal material, dangerous chemicals and rotten food.

There are many people who THINK they are eating well but are REALLY not eating well. The modern diet contains many unsuitable foods which are only suitable for birds and young calves. Sugar, grain and dairy are all unsuitable for humans and result in many diseases.

You are taking sides with the protagonists whose aim is to deceive and destroy you. I am your only hope of salvation. I am the only real scientist you is alive in this world. The last one was Nicola Tesla and we all know what happened to him. It was the same fate as Socrates, if you care to study your history books. You should only trust Socrates, Tesla and me. Everybody else is telling you lies.

-Have am enormous ego, wants people to think hes smart
-Sociopathic tendencies
-Arrogant behaviour
-Expects to be identified as superior
-Lacks empathy

You demostrate many traits of narcissism.

Funny enough, narcissism and low self esteem have been linked to belief in conspiracy theories.
