The Southern Nevada Health District has teamed up with the University of Rochester to create an app just for health officials that tracks foodborne illnesses in Las Vegas.
Soon the new Southern Nevada Health District app called Nemesis will be tracking your complaints about food.
“So if we find a bunch of people that got sick and they’re all at the same restaurant, we can identify that and then send out an inspector to see if there’s any particular problems at that restaurant,” said Brian Labus, epidemiologist and UNLV professor.
Last year, Nemesis monitored about 36,000 tweets per day. One thousand were from restaurants.
