Day 7: 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM - S7-E23

Corrected entry: The head scientist tells Tony that they need Jack's organs to reconstitute that pathogen since there is not enough of it in the sample. Assuming it's a virus, even a small sample could easily be grown in the lab to yield large amounts of the virus. Assuming it's a prion, they don't even need a sample since the could simply build it again from scratch so long as they knew the protein sequence (which is a likely assumption). In either case, Jack is unnecessary.

Correction: This is your assumption and is not a mistake of the show.

Day 7: 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM - S7-E23

Corrected entry: When Tony's henchmen isolate the pathogen from Jack's spinal fluid, the head scientist says the viral load is higher than hoped for, explicitly stating for the first time that the pathogen is a virus. This is in contrast to everyone else referring to it as a prion up till this point.

Correction: They may have very well believed it to be a prion up to this point. making there previose statments valid. no error.

Day 7: 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM - S7-E23

Corrected entry: The head scientist tells Tony that the only sure way to destroy the pathogen is to expose it to temperatures around 500 degrees celsius. Surgical and lab equipment are sterilized at 120 degrees celsius under the (legitimate) assumption that nothing survives this temperature. Prions and viruses, both mostly protein, would have fallen apart by this temperature.

Correction: This is your assumption that it can't survive at 120 degrees. It may very well be able to. Mutations occure all the time.
