Knowledge is Power.

Never has that been more apparent — COVID-19 is devastating our healthcare system, our economy and most importantly, the lives of those we love. An early warning system that helps our country detect and respond to outbreaks before they become epidemics is critical not just for today, but for our future. We have built one. 

The more Kinsa thermometers in use across the U.S., the better our system will be at tracking the spread of illness — in real-time.

We need your help to scale this up.

Why Kinsa?

Over the past 6 years, Kinsa has deployed an network of >1M smart thermometers that has proven to accurately predict how flu is spreading. In February, we modified this tool to identify unusual spikes in fever that cannot be explained by seasonal flu — in many cases, this has been the first and only signal of COVID-19 spreading in a community. Kinsa’s early warning tool has support from public health experts, scientists, business leaders, and government officials.

A website sharing this information was launched as a public service on March 18. Our system will become more powerful as more citizens become part of the network.

How can you help?

The more Kinsa smart thermometers there are in use, the better our ability to give our public health-first responders the information they need to intervene early.

Help us donate thermometers to families in under-resourced communities — families who are at greatest risk of not having access to medical treatment and thereby unintentionally spreading COVID-19 and other illnesses. We wish we could do this alone, but we cannot afford to. 

Your contributions will distribute more thermometers to families in Title 1 schools through our FLUency school health program.
