Title: WARNING SYSTEM FOR INFECTIOUS DISEASES AND METHOD THEREFOR
Abstract:
A computer implemented method for predicting the local area impact of the spread of global infectious diseases including the steps of providing on a computer readable medium a global pathogen risk factors database having data stored therein related to local area vulnerability of a group of human pathogens across a plurality of areas, providing on a computer readable medium a global pathogen activity database having data stored therein related to the activity of the group of human pathogens in said plurality of geographies, providing on a computer readable medium a global transport database having data stored therein related to travel patterns in and/or between the plurality of areas, processing by a computer system data on each of the global pathogen risk factors database, the global pathogen activity database and the global transport database to generate a pathogen vulnerability index, a pathogen activity index and a transportability index, and processing by the computer system each of the pathogen vulnerability index, the pathogen activity index and the transportability index to generate a risk indicator indicative of the local area impact of individual global infectious diseases.
