Earlier this week, Westover hosted its very first webinar featuring Dr. Benjamin Starnes, Professor and Chief of the Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine entitled “Battling COVID-19 on the Frontline.” Dr. Starnes shared his very personal experience battling the COVID-19 crisis in his home state of Washington. If you weren’t able to join us during the live broadcast, I invite you to watch the replay on-demand at https://westovercapital.com/videos/.
One of our webinar attendees reached out to share news of a recently developed COVID Symptom Tracker app aimed at rapidly collecting information to aid in the response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The app, developed by a consortium of scientists with expertise in big data research and epidemiology from Massachusetts General Hospital, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, King’s College London, and Stanford University School of Medicine, 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.
Over 3.8 million people are contributing to the study right now. The word is that if we get 43 more people in New Castle County using this app, we will be able to get real-time results on COVID-19 trends specific to our area.

Thanks to our viewer for sharing this information, encouraging us all to do our part to help lift the lockdown and get back to normal.
