If you live in the United States and feel paranoid enough about catching the flu, Roche has made available a desktop flu tracker (downloadable exe) that displays flu activity levels on a map of the continental U. S. in three broad and undefined classes. There is also the option of seeing the flu spread over the past few weeks. There is a certain sense of inevitability to watching the entire country become engulfed in a flu epidemic. Which, of course, is the intention. Roche, after all, is the making of the recently popular anti-flu drug Tamiflu.

Compare to other flu maps from the U. S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (simple and without embellishments), the National Flu Surveillance Network (pseudo-technological / scientific), or InteliHealth’s Flu-O-Meter (someone’s been playing too many video games).

By way of Connotea.
