To work around this, scientists at Cambridge used donated tissue to grow “mini-lungs” in three dimensions to track the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on…
It’s official folks. It takes 247 zeptoseconds, or a trillionth of a billionth of a second, for a particle of light to cross a single molecule of hydrogen marking the shortest interval of time ever recorded. Yep, that’s a 1 written behind 20 zeroes and a decimal point. Blink, blink. It’s gone. The measurement was…
A person’s heart and breathing rates increase and heart rate variability decrease as a viral infection ramps up. All of these are measurable using a modern-day smartwatch. Researchers at Purdue University are starting a study to see if continuously collected biometric smartwatch data could be used to detect early signs of viral infections, including COVID-19.
More than one billion people turn to Google Maps for essential information about how to get from place to place. This week, Google is introducing a new COVID layer in Google Maps, a tool that shows critical information about COVID-19 cases in an area so you can make more informed decisions about where to go…
