HealthMap has created an interactive global disease alert map! This site maps recent food and health risks, hazardous recalls and warnings, international significance, new and ongoing outbreaks, diseases and more using icons that link to online articles and other various sources. You can zoom into any part of the world or to a particular country in the following regions: North America, Europe, Africa, East Asia, Oceania, Central Asia, South America, Middle East, or Central America/ Caribbean. It also includes translations into seven different languages. Users are able to update by posting an article, providing an eyewitness report, leaving a voice or text message on the HealthMap Hotline, email information or update via their smartphone. Check out the interactive site by clicking here.
