Researchers have developed a new app that uses artificial intelligence technology to determine whether a person has COVID-19 based on the sound of their cough. The app has a 70% accuracy rate.
User data from a new COVID-19 symptom tracking app reveals a loss of taste and smell are the strongest predictors of a positive coronavirus diagnosis. Using the data, researchers have developed a model to identify which combination of symptoms together could best predict COVID-19 infection in individuals.
Researchers are pushing for the development of an instant mobile app that will alert people who have come into contact with a COVID-19 patient to immediately isolate themselves via an instant message. If rapidly and widely developed, the app could significantly help to contain the spread of coronavirus.
