VIRGINIA – A group of scientists at UVA is launching a new app that shows you the likelihood that someone at an event is unknowingly contagious with COVID-19.
The data shows your likelihood based off of location and the number of people.
“We put this app together with the idea that you select of a location, a county in this case, and then there’s a display that shows the likelihood that someone at that event is likely contagious, based on the number of people at that event,” said Michael Porter, a UVA data scientist.
Researchers behind the app say it is not foolproof, but the numbers show a best guess. It also does not reflect the people who have been vaccinated or may have immunity.
