A new or old disease will have a deadly outbreak in a country or countries with high standards of medical coverage that are accessible by the vast majority of the population. To qualify the following critera must be met:
Standard ambiguity clause: If the wording is found to be ambiguous I will judge on the basis of the obvious intent. If the intent is ambiguous I will judge on the basis of precise wording. If both are ambiguous or if both are clear but conflict, I will look for a solution that causes the least damage to FX as a market and game.
I will monitor newspapers (hard and soft) for an early alert, and the Center for Disease Control at http://www.cdc.gov/cdc.html for information on specific disease characteristics.
G7 and EC countries are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK, US, Belgium, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain.
