Influenzanet is a system to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet
FluSurvey is Ireland's online crowdsourcing system which allows members of the public to fight against seasonal flu. This system - in place across many European countries - helps medical professionals across Europe to track the spread of the virus.

Below we map the reported levels of ILI activity from our participants around the country. The map shows a gradient from no reported ILI (blue) to very high ILI (red), and is based on Ireland's statistical regions.
Please note that caution should be used in interpreting the estimated levels of ILI activity shown on the map, as the data may be based on small numbers.
Surveys will be starting again on Thursday October 15th.
