How RDYC Members can help Covid 19 Research

26th March 2020

Covid Symptom Tracker

Thank you to RDYC member Lis Godlee for bringing this opportunity to RDYC members who would like to assist with COVID 19 research initiatives.

The COVID Symptom Tracker was designed by doctors and scientists at King's College London, Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals working in partnership with ZOE Global Ltd – a health science company.

The app helps track the spread of Covid-19 and explore who is most at risk from the disease in an attempt to better understand the pandemic.

The free Covid Symptom Tracker app asks users to fill in data including age, sex and postcode as well as questions on existing medical conditions, such as heart disease, asthma and diabetes and whether users take drugs such as immunosuppressants or ibuprofen or use wheelchairs.

The app then asks participants to take one minute a day to report on whether they feel healthy and, if not, to answer questions on a wide range of symptoms, from coughs and fever to fatigue, diarrhoea and confusion.

As there are a number of apps purporting to do this whilst actually gathering valuable personal data Please see link that explains data usage and ensure that you only download from the Apple Apps store or Google link on that page.
