Giving them a vaccine, I suppose, would defeat the purpose.
From AppleInsider’s “Respiratory study launches to discover how Apple Watch can predict COVID” posted Wednesday:
Researchers at the University of Washington have partnered with Apple to study how Apple Watch may be used to predict illnesses such as coronavirus, or flu.
As part of Apple’s series of health partnerships, the company is working with the University of Washington and the Seattle Flu Study. If accepted onto the coronavirus study program, participants will be provided with an Apple Watch.
“The goal of the study is to see if the information collected by the Apple Watch and iPhone can detect early signs of respiratory illnesses like COVID-19,” say the organizers on the recruitment page.
My take: I hope they also get a supply of masks.
