There’s a new app that lets people know how many individuals in their immediate area may be sick.
Sickweather gets its information from public Facebook statuses as well as tweets in which people complain about being sick.
It then provides users with a map that can be categorized by type of illness which include respiratory, gastrointestinal, environmental and childhood sicknesses.
Users can click into one of the app's categories to see where people are suffering from a specific kind of illness around them.
