Influence of livestock on disease transmission - The Terminator - 19-04-2017 03:21 AM

Farms nowadays are jam packed with genetically identical animals that are all, apparently, highly susceptible to infection due to their close confinement and their lack of resistance to infection. Do you think that this should be utilized in the game? Perhaps this should lead to a re-calibration of the influence of certain disease vectors such as rodents or insects that may be able to get into contact with the livestock? Maybe you could make a disease that renders the food from the livestock poisonous and kills more humans this way? What are people's thoughts on this? Would this make the game more or less appealing?

Hmm I always thought that the way that the livestock transmission worked was by getting humans infected via the meat from the livestock that was eaten? What you're suggesting would make a lot of sense if how I interpreted it was wrong though lol.
