From the app: “
Help the NHS track the coronavirus across the UK
Take 1-minute to self-report daily, even if you are well. Help our scientists identify:
* How fast the virus is spreading in your area
* High-risk areas in the UK
* Who is most at risk, by better understanding symptoms linked to underlying health conditions
You are also contributing to advance research on COVID-19 in partnership with leading scientific institutions like King’s College London and the Twins Study, one of the most clinically detailed studies in the world.
This app allows you to help others, but does not give health advice. If you need health advice please visit the NHS website at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
This app is designed by doctors and scientists at King’s College London, Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals and Zoe Global Limited, a health technology company.
If you would like to help out in this difficult time, then you can. Download the app and share daily your own status, even if you are well. With your help we can understand much better the situation up and down the country, how the disease presents itself to different people, and how it progresses.
This is a new virus in the UK and has never been seen before. There are a wide range of symptoms, which differ between people. With your help we can understand better how the disease presents itself depending upon individual factors such as health and age.
No information you share will be used for commercial purposes.
There are two parts to the app:
You will be asked to share some general information, such as your age and some health information, such as whether you have certain diseases.
We will ask you every day to let us know how you feel, so you can share your symptoms. We will also ask whether you have visited the hospital, what treatment you received there, and whether you have been tested for COVID-19 (Coronavirus).”
