Can a website predict when you get sick?

Can a website predict when you get sick?

There’s an interesting new website out there called achoo.com, made by Kleenex. Now obviously, this website is a marketing campaign designed to look like a service to the community. But, it actually backs it all up with real data and facts that show where the majority of the flu bug is hanging out in the United States.

All you have to do on the website is enter your zip code and mention whether anyone in your household is sick, then boom, you find out your risk of getting the flu (or sick in general) in the next two weeks.

Do you think this is just a clever marketing campaign or something that can actually be trusted?
