HEALTHMAP: EPIDEMIOLOGICAL DATA ABOUT FILOVIRUS OUTBREAKS IN THE WORLD
HealthMap is a medical intelligence website that delivers real-time public health alerts about emerging infectious diseases on a global scale. Created in 2006, it is freely available at the website HealthMap.org and downloadable as a mobile application named “Outbreaks Near Me”.
Filoviruses are causative agents of haemorrhagic fever outbreaks that are temporally and spatially distributed in the Sub-Saharan African regions and in the Philippines, where these pathogens are endemic. Although these outbreaks are very rare, the theoretical possibility of travel-imported cases poses these events among the major public health threats. Here, thanks to the courtesy of its editorial board, you can explore HealthMap from this page of filovir.com website as an iframe of a QuickView, which shows real-time epidemiological data about outbreaks of Ebola and Marburg virus haemorrhagic fever. It is expected that, for the most of time, the world map will remain empty. In case of alert, just click on pins to read details; otherwise, you can check by clicking on the years below to see past events of filoviral infection cases. During ongoing outbreaks and epidemics of filoviral diseases, updates will be shown from the World Health Organization (WHO) Disease Outbreak News (DONs) bulletin, from the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) Epidemiological updates and from the US Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) Ebola and Marburg webpages.
