Daniels successfully approximated the distribution of the maximum number of infectives during an epidemic in a closed population, by reducing the problem to a curved boundary problem for Brownian motion. The purpose of this note is to present a simpler way of tackling the latter problem, using the invariance properties of Brownian motion.
