ANN ARBOR – Chris Malter from COVID 2020 talks about his new app that can be used to predict where the next virus hotspots will break out. He is interviewed by infectious disease expert Fred Brown, who worked on teams that helped find treatments for Ebola and AIDs.

 

About the COVEX 2020 App:  used public data from John Hopkins University and its AI to project where infection rates will likely be on June 23rd. The analysis, which took place on June 10th, suggests a grim outlook for New York City, Chicago, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and Atlanta. The company used this same AI last year to help the CDC and healthcare practitioners in New Jersey assess the opioid epidemic.

In the video interview, Malter also looks at where potential hotspots will be in Michigan under various scenarios.
