• Heat Map Shows How People Are Still Traveling During The Coronavirus Pandemic

    With the coronavirus outbreak still spreading like wildfire, many governments and healthcare organizations around the world have called upon people to stay home as much as possible. This is because by isolating ourselves, it prevents the virus from spreading unnecessarily, thus buying researchers, doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers more time to find a cure, vaccine, and to prevent undue burden on the healthcare system.

    However, it seems that despite the calls to stay home, a recent heat map shows that over in the US, there is still a frightening number of people traveling and moving around during this virus outbreak. This map was generated by Tectonix based on cellphone location data collected by X-Mode.

    According to X-Mode, they claim that this data has been anonymized, meaning that the location of the cellphone is not linked to the user’s identity, and it is just to show where people are in general.

  • An ER Doctor Describes What It’s Like to Treat Covid-19

    The coronavirus has landed, hard, in American emergency rooms. Hospitals in some areas are overwhelmed with critically ill Covid-19 patients, as the patient surge that epidemiologists warned us about is beginning.

    Now it’s on doctors and nurses in emergency rooms across the US, who are also desperate for personal protective equipment like masks and gloves. “We think of the US as one of the most well-resourced places in the world when it comes to health care, but it just goes to show that when there’s sort of widespread panic, normal supplies can be depleted fairly quickly,” says Cedric Dark, an emergency room physician at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, which is preparing for a surge in patients.

    “The other thing that we’ve been doing in hospitals—not only in Houston but across the country—is trying to figure out ways we can use one ventilator machine for more than one

  • Apple Launches COVID-19 Information Website And App

    The other day, Google announced that they are working on a website dedicated to providing users with accurate information about the COVID-19 virus outbreak. This was designed to help fight misinformation that seems to be spreading, where people are sharing inaccurate news and rumors that could potentially cause panic.

    It looks like Google is not alone in trying to fight misinformation and provide accurate information to the public, because Apple has also announced that they have launched not only a website dedicated to COVID-19, but also an accompanying app.

    According to Apple, “The COVID-19 app and website allow users to answer a series of questions around risk factors, recent exposure and symptoms for themselves or a loved one. In turn, they will receive CDC recommendations on next steps, including guidance on social distancing and self-isolating, how to closely monitor symptoms, whether or not a test is recommended at this time,

  • Google has banned the Infowars Android app over false coronavirus claims

    Google has banned the Infowars Android app from the Google Play store, the company confirmed to Wired on Friday. Google also confirmed the app’s removal to The Verge, and we couldn’t find the Infowars app in a search on the Play Store this evening.

    The app was apparently removed because of a video posted by radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones that, according to Wired, “disputed the need for social distancing, shelter in place, and quarantine efforts meant to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.” Before it was removed, the app had more than 100,000 downloads, Wired reports.

    “Now more than ever, combating misinformation on the Play Store is a top priority for the team,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement given to The Verge. “When
