Journalism of Things and Coronavirus
11:00-12:00

SARS-CoV-2 can be controlled with vaccines - and with the Internet of Things. Maker Guido Burger has written a small coronavirus success story with his kit for a CO2 traffic light. The device can also be used to measure the air quality in buses, trains or stores - and thus get an indication of the risk of infection. We'll talk about that in this panel, as well as Dirk Brockmann's research for the Robert Koch Institute. He uses ‘data donation’ to take Germany's pulse - measured by fitness wristbands - and track mobility behavior recorded via cell phone data. Both are helping to understand the pandemic and how to fight it.
