In his August 7, 2020, presentation the British retired Nurse Teacher Dr. John Campbell used his daily Covid briefing to present what might be a breakthrough in testing.

Given that testing all over the world is inadequate or even impossible at the scale needed, he described a new COVID Symptom Study and App. It was developed by a consortium of scientists with the goal of collecting information to help healthcare workers, researchers, and public officials to address the COVID-19 outbreak. This initiative was led by Professor Tim Spector in the UK and Dr. Andy Chan in the US, and was covered by the journal Science in March and peer reviewed in Nature.

This App collects daily information from individuals in the community about whether they feel well, and if not, their specific symptoms and if they have been tested for COVID-19. The authors say that this work has led to the development of accurate models of COVID infection rates in the absence of sufficient population testing.

Dr. John Campbell’s daily Covid briefs are on You Tube under “campbellteaching”. Since the beginning of the pandemic he has walked into his study - once or even twice a day - and turned the camera on for his welcome and given updates on Covid 19.
