This is the official FluView Influenza-Like Illness Activity mobile application created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
With this application, you can:
- Explore Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) Activity Levels across the US
- View ILI trends over several weeks
- Get on-demand access to state health department websites for local surveillance information
One of seven FluView surveillance components is to track information received from the U.S. Outpatient Influenza-like Illness Surveillance Network (ILINet). This application displays ILI activity levels based on the percent of outpatient visits in a jurisdiction due to ILI compared to the average percent of ILI visits that occur during weeks with little or no influenza virus circulation (non-influenza weeks). ILINet consists of more than 3,000 health care providers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands reporting more than 30 million patient visits each year.

Ratings and Reviews
Will no longer update, now worthless!
Used to be, but no longer.. Yes, you can zoom in! At least on the iPhone 5.. You can also see how the flu has progressed in your state over a 3 week period. Tapping on a state takes you to the appropriate health department page for that state, which gives you further information on the virus for that area along with helpful general information. You can zoom in on both the map, and color coded legend. Easy to use simplistic design!
Free, but worthless
App does not load current data. Appears to be stuck on May 21, 2016. Will not load current map for January 2017.
Doesn't have current data
The app won't download data and update itself. Maybe it needs to be connected via WiFi, but as it is the app just shows data from May, 6 months ago. Not exactly useful.
CDC - please, if you're going to release software, at least make sure that it works. This stuff is important.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
