These days controlling influenza outbreaks have become an important issue for health authorities. It causes millions of deaths worldwide so that, it must be controlled at an early stage. In this research work, we have done an associated study of algorithms and methods, modelling the outbreak of an epidemic with the focus of swine flu. In the introduction section we have given the significance of the study with respect to micro-blogging website Twitter. In related work we have a survey from… CONTINUE READING
