Kinsa Thermometer Data Predict COVID-19 Hotspots In New York, Maryland, Wisconsin, Washington State06:54


Since the beginning of the pandemic we've been checking in with Kinsa Thermometer, a company that compiles data from millions of smart thermometer users to forecast where the next COVID-19 hotspots will be, weeks before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can.

The data, which is shared publicly, gives epidemiologists and public health officials a head start when it comes to stopping the spread.

Host Robin Young talks to Kinsa CEO Inder Singh about how it works and where the next hotspots will be.
