New Zealand test app to detect Govt-19 before symptoms appear

New Zealand border officials begin inspections a Application A new type. Called the “Alarm”, the app integrates with smartwatches or mobile devices that measure athlete performance and uses artificial intelligence to check variables such as heart rate and temperature to detect warning signs of Covit-19. The developer of the app says the New Zealand-based datamine can detect the virus with 90% accuracy for up to three days before symptoms such as coughing, difficulty breathing and fatigue appear.

The health ministry said the system would allow border workers to be warned in advance of exposure to the corona virus. In fact, the archipelago currently has almost no local cases recorded, and the Covit-19 were only positively tested as foreign travelers. “If the alarm application is what we expect, it will give our staff a quick alert,” said Shane Hunter, deputy director of the Department of Health.

“This means they can take appropriate action, such as isolating and testing for Govt-19,” he added. New Zealand Corona has been highly successful in controlling the virus infection, with only 26 deaths per five million people linked to Govt-19. Rare local cases were usually dealt with persons working at the border and with returnees and isolated personnel.

Hunter says about 500 cross-border workers will take part in a one-month trial of the application. The technology uses artificial intelligence to establish a note of health status for each user and to warn them of any physiological changes associated with Covid-19. The alarm is already available to individuals for a one-month subscription and some companies, such as the American mining company Newcrest, have made it available to their employees.
