Sickweather uses a patent-pending process to track and map reports of illness from social media in addition to crowdsourcing directly from our user community. Reports are represented by blue "SICK" map markers at the local level -- tap them for more information of exactly when they were reported. Some viruses can survive on surfaces for up to 48 hours and can have a viral life cycle of 2 weeks, so we color-code more recent reports as RED within 1 day, ORANGE within 2 days, YELLOW within 1 week, and we include reports as old as 2 weeks in BLUE.
