The whole world is fighting the invisible monster of COVID-19 right now, and because we know so little about the virus it’s taking everything we can throw at it just to keep it from overwhelming our medical systems. Until there is a cure or a vaccine, preventing the spread is key. Currently, people are testing for elevated temperatures as a way to detect COVID-19, but by the time you show a fever you’ve already potentially infected others for weeks.
One company, Megadata, has been able to show a strong correlation between pulse oxygen and COVID-19 up to two weeks before fevers show the same. Learn more about how data is leading the fight against COVID-19 below.
