I work in a group home where one of the residents has been coughing up a storm, so this is relevant to my interests.

Infection Simulation is the name of my Anthrax cover band.

Yep.  All Americans are idiots, and only Americans.

Can't explain why the virus is spiking all over the globe.

Americans are a special kind of idiot because of freedoms.

Americans are a more visible kind of idiot because:

A) We have the freedom to be idiots
B) The entire world is watching us all the time C) We're so big most Americans don't realize or care about B) because they barely feel like the rest of the world exists

The entire world has the idiots, they just aren't as visible.

Okay - this is a reach.

There was a game for the Apple ][ back in the early 80's that involved infected people, trains connecting the State Capitols, and needing to collect gems or diamonds to cure the infected.

Can the power of Fark help me out on what the name of this game was?

I think I found it - nevermind Fark...
