Legionella and Dengue are tracked by Facebook and google

20 Jun

In a precedent post I talked about Google correlate (see my post of 9 June).

Social networks and search engines are becoming the two new disease hunters of the 21 century.

Legionellosis epidemic has been elucidated in Los Angeles County by the mean of Facebook and dengue is being actually chased by Google.

In the next future you will perhaps start your next trip abroad by connecting you to Google Dengue Trends to get an instant indicator of Dengue activity in the World or to Health Map.

An interesting research article on neglected tropical disease surveillance has been published on the subject in Plos (Public Library of Science).
