Dear Daire

Thank you for sharing your opinion with us

We agree that it is necessary for health to use the same principles that are used for the army

Putting technology at the service of people (example: health monitoring on an individual basis)

New organization
(example: cross-functional teams of health professionals to support a predetermined amount of population)

Technology to provide information to multifunctional teams

Continue to do research and development

We also agree that it is necessary to develop empathy and all domains related to humanity (example: Principles and Values)
Dear Luis,

Its sounds like you are infavour of wearable technology.

Iphone and Iwatch already have the technology to constantly monitor you health and general wellbeing but I do not see anybody using this approach during the COVID-19 outbreak even though it is readily available and free to use.

I do not think empowering people to take control of their own health and wellbeing is the way to prevent the next outbreak. You would have so many issues with privacy and medical negligence could increase as a result.

Using AI to solve these problem may cut down on some of the grunt work but a better approach is still needed to prevent these outbreaks.

The solution would not only be suitable for a pandemic situation but for all situations related to our health

It would certainly relieve everything that is diagnostic (blood tests, tests of all kinds) and, it would give more reliable "clues" to health professionals who monitor the evolution of our state

Dear Luis,

One of the main symptoms of COVID-19 is respiratory difficulty and one of the functions of the iwatch is monitoring your heart rate.

Surely there must be a way to link the two and proactively prevent the spread COVID-19 by detecting at a much earlier stage the symptoms of COVID-19.

Apple Health for the iphone also collects users data about there exercise pattern by seeing how far a person has walked or run in a day. This information could be used to see if a users has been in areas with known and confirmed cases of COVID-19.

The merging of ideas and technology is were the latest advances of technology is coming from.
