US Army wants to develop sensors to detect COVID-19


The U.S. Army is offering a $25 million contract to a tech company that can develop wearable sensors to detect COVID-19.

According to a memo sent through a medical consortium, the Army wants proposals that include existing technology.

The sensor would be worn on the body possibly on the wrist or on a watch, shirt, or belt.

The Army wants the device to indicate if the person is having difficulty breathing or if they have a fever.

If symptoms are detected then the service member can be fully tested.
