Kinsa Thermometer “HealthWeather,” Incredibly Accurate, Predicts COVID Increase
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Kinsa HealthWeather map which rose to international prominence in the early days of COVID-19 for its exceptionally accurate predictions is now showing that COVID-19 cases are likely to increase in South Florida over the next four weeks. Kinsa uses anonymized data from its popular Kinsa Thermometer to gauge where people are getting sick. The thermometer — and the data it provides — gives health professionals a realtime look at current conditions versus normal conditions. South Florida is showing an abnormally high and increasing rate of illness.
Kinsa’s morning report adds South Florida, Raleigh and Durham North Carolina, Indianapolis, Chicago, Cleveland and Akron, and Nashville as areas to watch.
From its own description: “Kinsa’s mission is to curb the spread of contagious illness through early detection and early response. Aggregating fever and symptoms from a network of more than 1.5 million app-enabled smart thermometers, Kinsa has proven to accurately predict how flu is spreading 12-20 weeks in advance. Recently published research shows Kinsa’s data is also an early indicator of COVID-19 outbreaks, providing 3 weeks advance warning of hospitalization and death.”
