To help prepare for future influenza seasonal epidemics or pandemics, infectious disease modelers from the Fred Hutchison Cancer Center Research Center and the University of Washington, Seattle, have made available to the public a new influenza epidemic simulator, FluTE. Computer simulations can provide valuable information to communities preparing for epidemics. The simulations generated by FluTE can be used to investigate the effectiveness of various intervention strategies in reducing or delaying the peak of an epidemic within a county, state, or nation.
