A Flu Forecast?

We all keep an eye on daily weather forecast, to be prepared to any change in meteorological conditions. But is it possible to predict some deceases activity, for example flu, the same way? The answer is Yes. Google Flu Trends (GFT) was launched exactly for this purpose. They are able to provide real-time estimates that could accurately guide hospitals and health systems in allocating resources for flu care. To monitor flu activity they use different data from non-traditional sources as Google, Twitter and Crowd-sourced flu data from Flu Near You. These real-time estimates are 99% accurate and give predictions for 2-week time.
