    Coronavirus breathalyzer

    Edit

    A coronavirus breathalyzer is a diagnostic medical device enabling the user to determine with 90% or greater accuracy the presence of coronavirus in an exhaled breath. As of the first half of 2020, the idea of a practical coronavirus breathalyzer was concomitantly developed by unrelated research groups in the United States, Finland, Israel, England, Australia and Germany.[1][2]

    United StatesEdit

    In June 2020 American researchers at UCLA and Ohio State University received grants to test coronavirus breathalyzer concepts, one of which could produce results in 15 seconds. The testing system would be able to take certain compounds of an individual breath to detect coronavirus.[3] “The goal in this research is to develop cheap, massively deployable, rapid diagnostic and sentinel systems for detecting respiratory illness and airborne viral threats,” says Prof. Pirouz Kavehpour of UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, whose research team received a one-year, $150,000 research grant from the National Science Foundation.[4]

    Canary Health Technologies, a US-registered company, is developing a breathalyzer with disposable nanosensors using AI-powered cloud-based analysis. It is working with researchers around the world to test the point-of-care device. The first clinical trial is due to start in August in South Africa with researchers at Wits University.[5] The goal is to develop a highly accurate and affordable screening tool that can be used anywhere and deliver a result in real time. Using volatile organic compounds in human breath for detection could prove to detect diseases before the on-set of symptoms, earlier than any of the current methods. The cloud-based technology is also designed to be used as a disease surveillance tool.

    In my opinion Trump does not have the mental capacity to realize that American people will not vote for him because he has done the same thing that happens in other countries like communistic countries fascist countries those types of countries where the government doesn't tell the public the truth.

    Trump is wanting a type of America where he only releases the rosie sweet happy pictures meanwhile

    back at the branch ma and par dead there's three 16 children and the youngest one they put in the detention centers how wrong can you get on this situation?

    I'm so sorry too if I offend anyone but they probably use those children for stem cell research trying to make male impotency cured..

    we all know that male pattern balding far outweighed women's breast cancer there has not been anything done about that either.

    These people cannot possibly understand the real life situation that the American people face daily…

    And quite frankly they don't have the inclination to try to.

    It is of no importance to them because they are not affected by it.

    These high rollers
    During a pandemic right through the pandemic have shown us that they could care less about the American people they go on with their grandiose gold plated plates for whatever thousands of dollars each great so that we have Trump's face in our face 24/7.

    watering down the information making it sound like everything's under control no don't worry be happy!

    compare what we spend on the covid-19 pandemic for testing better testing reliable test quick test low cost test for all Americans and research so on so forth compare that to how the first stimulus was sucked up by the Pentagon and Donald Trump fired the overseer and gave away all the money to his friends to reward them for their loyalty president Trump and turning their back on the Constitution of the United States of America.

    Quickly, like a rattlesnake, Pence jumped clear and avoided the question of how Trump and Pence would protect Americans from losing their health insurance due to pre-existing conditions (which will include COVID-caused lung, heart, brain, and other damage) if they get the Affordable Care Act struck down through Barrett and her Supremes. Thus, understand, Trump and Pence will make sure that health insurers do NOT have to pay for millions of Americans' health insurance needs due to their incompetent lying and mishandling of this pandemic, which caused thousands more Americans to get infected and die.

    Mark my words. Millions of you will LOSE YOUR HEALTH CARE INSURANCE when Barrett and her Republican Supremes strike down the Affordable Care Act as Trump and McConnell plan.

    They will doubtless receive HUGE BRIBES from the health insurer's ultra-rich owners, because they will save them BILLIONS! That is probably how Trump is planning to pay off the $400,000,000+ (over $400 MILLION) that he currently owes and cannot pay.

    His pretend-executive order pretending to bar insurers from cutting persons with pre-existing conditions (like a COVID 19 diagnosis, which will result in long-lasting, physical damage, including to most infected persons' lungs) is an AUDACIOUS LIE. He knows that it is invalid but is trying to TRICK dumb Republican AMERICANS into believing that it will be effective.

    In short, Republicans' evil plans are to benefit the ultra-rich by harming the disadvantaged and FRANKLY, MOST AMERICANS over 50% of whom now have PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS. I predict that greedy health insurers, if freed by Judge Barrett from the restrictions in the ACA as planned by Trump and the Republicans, will ALSO use AI to predict which people who will soon get certain diseases and maximize their profits by dropping them (AND THOSE SUFFERING FROM COVID OR ITS SEQUELAE) from their rolls of insureds. Such software was already created:
    See MIT Technology Review:
    "In 2015, a research group at Mount Sinai Hospital in New
    York was inspired to apply deep learning to the hospital’s
    vast database of patient records. This data set features
    hundreds of variables on patients, drawn from their test
    results, doctor visits, and so on. The resulting program,
    which the researchers named Deep Patient, was trained
    using data from about 700,000 individuals, and when
    tested on new records, it proved incredibly good at
    predicting disease. … Deep
    Patient had discovered patterns hidden in the hospital data
    that seemed to indicate when people were on the way to a
    wide range of ailments, including cancer of the liver."

    See https://www.technologyreview.com/2017/04/11/5113/the-dark-secret-at-the-heart-of-ai/. That is the evil Republicans' central plan. Republicans want to maximize the profits of the ultra-rich, who own them, by allowing them to destroy the Affordable Care Act's protections to Americans with pre-existing conditions.

    They want to insure only those, healthiest Americans whose medical expenses will be so minor that the premiums that they charge them will be pure profit. It is unlikely that any one of you readers of this comment are among those elite Americans. If you think you are, chances are that your doctor may have some surprise information for you to dissuade you from your mistaken belief.

    More than half of Americans have pre-existing conditions or incipient conditions, like the metabolic syndrome that then leads to full-fledged diabetes, which will disqualify them from getting insurance when the ACA restrictions are removed by Barrett and the Supremes. We will truly miss Justice Ginsberg, a lot, even more next year than now.

    Trump is hiding this, like he is hiding his date of infection, which was obviously a week before he was hospitalized. Trump wants to hide that he was a super spreader and infected those people in the rose garden party, at his rallies, etc.

    Why does he refuse to state the date of his "last negative test?" I predict that we will find out that he is so UTTERLY SELFISH and a sociopath that he DID NOT GET TESTED FOR A LONG TIME, because he figured that he was safe far away from others at his rallies and he did not care if his dumb supporters, packed close together and maskless, got Covid 19 and died.

    The White House has refused actual contact tracing! They have also asked to keep positive tests secret! Even so it is now know at least 34 people have tested positive as a result of recent WH transmission!
    BTW when was the last time you saw Barr, Pompeo, Ivanka, & Jared publicly? Hmmmm
    Also, Pence was to be in quarentine another week but the WH is ignoring cdc guidelines ugh… this fact should be headline news! (especially as Mrs Pence blatently ignored mask requirement rules specific to the vp debate when supposed to be in quarentine ugh) Especially considering Abbott rapid tests have been proven highly unreliable smh
