The Sprint COVID-19 initiative is working on developing a heuristic test to identify asymptomatic, pre-symptomatic and mild cases of the virus. It seeks to find new innovative ways for simple testing that each and every one of us can administer on our own. The initiative is focused on one goal: A sprint to the finish line with different technological solutions likely to stop the pandemic in its tracks. 17% of smartphone owners worldwide have devices that carry the SpO2 sensor, which can enable the test. This covers nearly 19% of the US population, 18% of UK population and up to 12% of Italy’s population.
