Hint’s & Tips (PC)

Rubbish, rat holes, and vomit:
You can eradicate rubbish, rat holes and vomit by simply moving furniture over the affected areas, this simply clears the area.

Prevent epidemic:
Sometimes, but not always, you can prevent an epidemic by immediately saving when you see an epidemic icon. Then reload your save and when you click the epidemic icon it will simply disappear from the menu bar.

Stop epidemic event:
When an epidemic event has happened, before the time is up (when the Health Minister shows up on your map), delete the reception desk. Wait or hasten the timer (by sending one of the infected patient home), when the time is up, the Health Minister will not show up because there is no where to go to. After that, re-place your reception table and the epidemic will not happen again.

More time for Level 1:
You can prevent the timer from starting on Level 1 tutorial by not hiring a doctor, once you are happy with the layout of your hospital you can then start the timer by hiring your doctor. This gives you some extra time to prepare your hospital!
