    Crear mapas del coronavirus con un sencillo test

    Para poder realizar esta encuesta hay que entrar en fundacionio.com, una fundación sin ánimo de lucro que se dedica a las enfermedades infecciosas.

    La tecnología y las aplicaciones informáticas se han demostrado como un factor fundamental para conocer la propagación del covid-19 y como una herramienta clave para tratar de evitar el aumento de casos.
    Ignacio Garitano, médico del Hospital de Txagorritxu de Vitoria,  coordina un proyecto dedicado a generar mapas actualizados de los focos del coronavirus. Esta herramienta no es más que un cuestionario, que te llega «a través de alguna red social», te pregunta si has tenido sintomas compatibles con la enfermedad, te pide el código postal y la fecha de inicio de estos síntomas.
    «La aplicación puede servir para ayudar a estimar la cantidad de casos que hay, ya que sólo sabemos los casos positivos que hay a través de los test que se realizan», explica Ignacio en ‘Hoy por Hoy’.
    No obstante, tal y como explica el médico Garitano, este tipo de herramientas adquieren valor cuando hay un alto porcentaje de respuestas. Por el momento, llevan unas 300.000 encuestas a nivel de nacional, mientras que en Álava ha respondido hasta el 9% de la población. más información
