Examine the footprints - a "blue cloud" will appear on the second floor. Approach it to reconstruct the events - mark them in the correct order:

  2. Quarrel during the dinner.
  3. The consequences of the disease on the floor in the next room.

After completing both parts of the mission, return to the doctor at the hotel. As a reward, you will receive a large amount of valuable equipment - don't meet with the doctor when your inventory is full. You will also get the bestiary entries in your log. You can continue the investigation because the doctor has a second case for you to investigate as part of the same side mission.
