Mapping Where Ill Angelenos Are So They Can be Avoided

New, 3 comments

As the weather cools off (at least at night) and the winds kick up, Angelenos are getting hit with allergies, colds, and fevers, or at least, that's what this map from SickWeather suggests. The interactive map "scans social networks for indicators of illness," so, if someone is at home with the flu and sends a Tweet saying as much, they become a bubble on the map. If the map's to be believed, LA's got a lot of cases of the common cold right now spread out across the basin. Culver City, Mid-City, and Fairfax all managed to stay cold-free, though, despite being not so far from WeHo, the Hills, and Beverly Hills, which have plenty of reports of sickness.
