Search engine tracking flu in U.S.

Medical search engine Healthline has a nifty new page that is tracking the flu county by county, and even zip code by zip code, as it begins its annual move through the United States. The data, which comes from 6,000 docs around the country, could be useful, or it could just make people more paranoid as they watch their area change from a nice, nonthreatening green (no threat) to purple (epidemic).

(Thanks to Business Week's Blogspotting for the pointer.)
