Ep1: Insufficient explanation of the data set #534

The result is a roughly linear rise and fall, which is suspicious: we might instead expect a sharper rise and slower fall.

It's not clear to me why we should expect a rise in inflammation at all. The scenario is putting patients on a new drug to reduce inflammation. Would the drug initially make the inflammation worse, but then make things better? It would help motivate the lesson if we had a very brief explanation of what we're expecting and why.

I'm happy to make a PR, if someone can confirm the above details.

I think the rise in inflammation data corresponds to an outbreak, which happens exponentially. And the fall corresponds to the treatment kicking in.
