Using wearables to detect Covid-19 infection…

Testing for Covid-19 has been primarily done via swap-tests. There were Pilots being developed using saliva and sweat. Now, wearables are charting a whole new direction altogether.

Fancy that activity tracking device that you are wearing being able to detect that you are potentially infected with Covid-19. How is that even possible? Well, perhaps we could build predictive models using indicators that COVID-19 patients exhibit just prior to them showing symptoms? That’s what Researchers are trying to do. Hopefully, they can develop something that can reliably provide such information and roll out for public use soon.
