This chapter reveals the patterns on a discernible band of cases in Chkalovskiy. It describes the research team's spot maps, which are compiled along with the interview data, conclusions from the autopsy data, and the public health responses as described by the officials. The chapter highlights an important fact about incubation in inhalation anthrax: the incubation period can be more than a month, which is longer than the initial incubation period. It considers the capacity of anthrax spores to remain dormant in the lungs (a plausible explanation for the long duration of the epidemic), which clarifies the difference between inhalation and intestinal anthrax, and ends with a testimony that Soviet military laboratories were experimenting with manufacturing exotic diseases.
