Diseases will appear randomly over time in a player's park and affect certain dinosaurs. Each dinosaur is immune to a certain disease and vulnerable to another.
Dinosaurs affected by a disease will slowly but steadily lose health until death if the disease isn't cured through Ranger or ACU teams. Diseases are most likely to spread to dinosaurs in the same enclosure and can get out of control if a player has a crowded exhibit.
Players can either order rangers to heal diseased dinosaurs or do so manually using the dart rifle. Once all diseased dinosaurs are cured, the disease will no longer spread.
