      Wearables to join Covid-19 offensive

      The effectiveness of wearables as Covid-19 detectors is a milestone for several studies that show promising results, Bloomberg reported. Monica Valencia, whose family member died of Covid-19 amid an extremely short illness, was among 400 employees of the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System outfitted with wearable Fitbit fitness devices as a part of a study tracking early signs of Covid-19 launched in March by the Scripps Research Translational Institute in San Diego.
