A bit about us:

Kinsa was founded with a mission to stop illness from spreading by knowing where and when it starts. Our mission has never been more important or more relevant than it is right now. We are leading the charge in the fight against COVID-19, while vigilantly monitoring for outbreaks of Flu and other seasonal illness.
We do this by transforming anonymized, opt-in temperature data from our user friendly thermometers into a publicly available real-time map of illness that is so accurate, we are able to predict Covid-19 outbreaks well before other health agencies. Kinsa’s system is so effective it has been featured in the New York Times, on Rachel Maddow, CNBC, FOX News, The Economist, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, and other media outlets.
