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
It's free and it's from the CDC. Need I say more?
Accurate fast efficient way to track flu infections wherever you are wether it's traveling for work, or at home with family.
I can use this app to get that quick heads up to be extra cautious and stock up on sanitizer so maybe just maybe this year will be another flu free year for me and my family.
In short, excellent app to quickly view flu trends in any area straight from the most accurate source

Bottom line, download this free app and arm yourself this flu season with one more tool to keep you and your family healthy.
Thank You for this very resourceful app!
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!
I'd give it zero if I could
It doesn't connect to wifi to download the current data. I tried reinstalling it, checked under settings, it just doesn't work. To bad because as a health care provider it would have been handy. Go to the website instead. It has more data, it's current. No problems there.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
