flu trends go viral


Google.org launched Flu Trends this week, a brilliant program designed to track and aggregate flu-related searches. By following searches like, “flu symptoms,” and “muscle aches,” Flu Trends has proven to be a relatively accurate and incredibly fast indicator of Flu outbreaks in different regions. Although it’s only tracking flu-related searches in the US right now, there’s no reason it couldn’t expand to track a variety of viruses throughout the world.
