Facebook app to help track how viruses spread
from Healthcare IT News
A new Facebook application, developed in a Tel Aviv University lab, is poised to serve as a better indicator of how infections spread among populations. The Facebook app called PiggyDemic allows users to "infect" their friends with a simulated virus or become infected themselves. The resulting patterns are expected to allow researchers to gather information on how a virus mutates, how it spreads through human interaction and the number of people it infects.
