This may have already been addressed, but I didn't see it in the FAQ so I figured I would make a post about it. The wording on this particular plot card seems unusually vague to me. For starters, it starts out with "Use this card..." as opposed to the usual "Exhaust this card..." I don't think I've seen a single other plot card use the former instead of the latter. So my questions are thus:
Does the cards effect only last for the first round of an encounter or does it last until the chosen monster is defeated or the encounter ends?
Since the card apparently doesn't get exhausted, if i have, say, 6 threat tokens when starting an encounter, could I use the card multiple times to grant its effect to up to 3 monsters?
Edit to add the text of the card:
Use this card after setup of an encounter to choose a monster. Each hero that starts his turn within 5 spaces of that monster is Diseased. Place a threat token on the monster's base as a reminder.
