When I think of my favorite seasons, I can assure you that the flu season isn’t one of them. My boys got hit with the flu during the holidays and my sister, her kids and my mom all suffered as well. Unfortunately there are only so many precautions you can take to keep you and your family getting sick. Getting flu shots, washing hands often, trying to avoid touching your face and leading a healthy lifestyle are all great flu prevention tips. Now the makers of Theraflu want to help you stay on top of the flu and have created WheresFlu, an app to with the latest cold and flu news nationwide.
WheresFlu categorizes the levels of illness on the local population with low levels with less than 5% of the population affected, all the way up to 15% or more of the population affected, which is the very high level. Now you can know where the cold and flu hot spots are nationwide and how your city compares to others!
You can send this application to your friends and family via email and even get a $2 coupon off any Theraflu product for yourself or anyone you think might need a little help as well this flu season. Don’t we all?
The WheresFlu application is available for download now on your Blackberry, Android or iPhone through Blackberry App World, Android Market or iTunes.
