USask, Western, Carleton communities develop websites to track rapid test results

January 18, 2022
Postsecondary community members in Ontario and Saskatchewan have recently developed websites to track rapid test results. University of Saskatchewan biomedical neuroscience student Noah Little and USask epidemiologist Nazeem Muhajarine collaborated to create an online tool where people can anonymously report their rapid test results from across Canada. “What this does is it adds it to a database of rapid test results that can be used for research and can be used to better understand these gaps in data,” said Little. Western University nursing student Elliot Hegel teamed up with Carleton University computer science student Henry Morris to create a website that could log COVID-19 rapid test results. People who take a rapid antigen test can input their results and anonymous details such as general geography so that the aggregated data can be used by researchers. CBC (USask) | Western (ON | SK)
