HELP COVID-19 RESEARCH

You can help fight COVID-19 by aiding research.  Kings College London are running a large research project at https://covid.joinzoe.com/

There is a free app attached to the website that members of the public can down load (from the AppStore or Google Play) and report on their health.  After some initial health questions,  it is only neccessary to answer 2 questions on a daily busis. It mostly takes less than a minute to do (although from time to time they ask slightly more searching questions)

This is a valuable well-conducted project that can help to get us nearer the day Covid-19 is beaten.
