The Use Of Wearable Vital Signs Sensor Technology For Early Physiological Detection And Tracking Of Viral Respiratory Tract Infections - Year two

BACKGROUND: Viral respiratory tract infection (VRTI) is the most common illness in humans, resulting in a total economic impact of $40 billion annually in the United States. Taking into consideration the current novel coronavirus pandemic - impacting billions of people around the world, compromising the global economy, and putting extreme pressure on healthcare systems - it is imperative to identify novel ways to both detect and prevent VRTIs such as COVID-19.
