Google Launches Flu Tracker Tool

Ad Feedback

As flu season approaches, technology is letting people know about outbreaks in their cities.

Google launched a new Internet tool called "Google Flu Trends" to help visitors track where the flu epidemic may be spreading.

The feature monitors when search terms similar to flu symptoms are entered and where the user is located.  That information, which remains anonymous, is then given to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
