Guy’s & St Thomas’ App – helping to manage the Covid-19 outbreak
The more we know about the population with and without Covid-19 symptoms, the more we can understand how the disease is progressing.
Knowing where the outbreak is with respect to numbers of people with symptoms / how they are affected, will help the NHS cope at this difficult time.
A new App 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) can be used to study the symptoms of the virus and track how it spreads. You can find the app here:
Please share the App with your colleagues, patients, practice lists and friends and encourage everyone to take 1-minute to self-report daily, even if well. By doing this we will be collectively helping scientists to identify:
High-risk areas in the UK
Who is most at risk, by better understanding symptoms linked to underlying health conditions?
How fast the virus is spreading in your area
Please play your part by downloading the App to report your own symptoms and sharing the App with all your professional and personal contacts with a message such as:
‘’Help slow the spread of #COVID19 and identify at risk cases sooner by self-reporting your symptoms daily, even if you feel well. Download the app”
