An app can detect COVID-19 – level 1

19-04-2021 07:00

People with COVID-19 have many symptoms. Pink eyes are one of the symptoms. Scientists know more than two million different kinds of pink color. They know which color is usual for people with COVID-19.

Scientists in one German company make a special app. This app can detect COVID-19.

It is very easy to use it. You install the app in your smartphone. You take a picture of one of your eyes. Then you must wait three to five minutes. The app sends you a message. It tells you if you have COVID-19 or not.

The app also checks your temperature, heartbeat, and eye infection. It helps to get the correct result. The result is correct in 95% of cases.

Difficult words: symptom (something that tells you that you have a disease), detect (to find), case (one situation or one example of something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
