From San Francisco Chronicle’s “Predicting coronavirus? SF emergency workers wear state-of-the-art rings in new study“:
At least 2,000 San Francisco emergency medical workers will begin wearing rings this week that track their body temperature and other vital signs in a first-of-its-kind study to try to identify the early onset of COVID-19 and help curb its spread.
In addition to UCSF Medical Center and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital staff wearing the devices, UCSF also started a campaign Monday to ask the Oura Ring’s approximately 150,000 users to share their medical data in hopes that researchers can develop an algorithm that could detect the earliest stages of coronavirus, before symptoms manifest.
My take: The perfect accessory for a pandemic. $299 in silver or black, $999 with diamonds.
