The Sickweather Nightingale API provides access to location-based information on contagious illnesses. Sickweather scans social media websites for indicators of various types of sickness in order to identify outbreaks for a given location. The API's calls let users get individual reports, the local forecast, and the contagious illness threat level for a location. The API can also be used to submit a report of an illness.
