All day today I had a sick little lamb on my hands. If I knew about this WheresFlu™ App from the makers of Theraflu, things may have turned out differently.
With this app, you can see where people are sick, so you can actively avoid those places. It also shows you the top five offending cities across the nation. Talk about helpful travel planning!
The WheresFlu™ application is available for the U.S. It measures weekly activity for cold and flu based upon real-time reports of symptoms from SDI FAN® (a source used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). As the longest-running respiratory tracking program in the US, SDI FAN® covers illness levels in 135 regions across the country utilizing panel-member reporting along with patient-specific data. Advanced tracking uses illness status levels to predict change in the affected population for the nine US Census Regions.
Wheresflu™ categorizes incidences of illness as follows: Low (0-5% population affected); Moderate (5-10% population affected); High (10-15% population affected); Very High (>15% population affected).
If you’ve got an iPhone®/iPod touch®, Android™, or BlackBerry®, you have to download this app. IT’S FREE, so why not?
Head over here and download this clever app.
