GoViral


Help research spot flu and infectious outbreaks
Share your symptoms and see real-time data from others

You can pre-register for this project!

GoViral is a free and real-time online Cold & Flu surveillance system administered by researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital and New York University. Participants will get a Do-It-Yourself flu saliva collection system that they can keep and use at home if they are feeling sick. All samples will be analyzed at a central laboratory that checks for 20 different viral infections. GoViral participants will get their own laboratory results and, through the aggregate data, be able to see what infections and symptoms are going around near them so they can take appropriate public health measures and understand when something might be abnormal. The data will be used for research purposes only.
