TIL I've been playing this game wrong. We have always just given the infection dice when giving samples but I looked at the rule book again and you're right. The other thing is that in the rules it says your player dice stay locked on your card until you either share with another player or try to find a cure. They really could have written that section better because it reads like whether or not you are successful, simply rolling for a cure frees up the dice.
How easy is the game if samples dont lock up one of you die?
