Amazing Sensor which would help to real time monitor Covid-19 Patient Symptoms
BioIntelliSense, a Denver-based digital health startup, has developed a
wearable sensor meant to monitor patients’ vital signs remotely and provide
near real-time data that clinicians can use to identify physiological changes
indicating a need for intervention.
This tool would be very helpful in real-time monitoring of COVID-19 patients. The device measures an individual’s
temperature, respiratory rate, heart rate, and coughing — the symptoms of

the University of Tasmania, was making the decision to have an AZ jab now
rather than wait for Pfizer, she deployed her number-crunching prowess.
Using UK data, she calculated that “I’d have about
a 1/60,000 chance of dying of Covid-19 in the next 90 days; balance that
against a 1/900,000 chance of a fatal blood clot, working off a 1/30,000 chance
of a clot x 1/30 chance of it being fatal.”
