Where’s the phone app to STOP you getting sick?

Germs all around? But now you know they’re there

Seems like it was forever ago, but it was only 2009.

Back when we discovered that pretty well anything we wanted to do could be done on the phone – because “there’s an app for that.”

Even in the days of the horse-drawn smartphone, you could organise and enhance your life more than anyone had ever done before.

More apps, more apps

Today of course, the opportunities have exploded – and personal health is the new magic playground.

Because right now, you can choose from over 50,000 health apps.

These things are amazing – extended even further by personal monitors and wearables.

Every second of the day you can monitor your blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar, breathing performance – whatever. Fitness and nutrition are the new Holy Grails – and in case you didn’t know you’re not getting any sleep, you can even monitor your insomnia.

Quite what you do with this information is up to you.

Fitness nuts will anguish over it and demand ever better achievement from themselves. Social media junkies will have a ball linking themselves to all kinds of condition from movie heart-throb to lying at death’s door.

Which turns every one of us into cyberchondriacs de luxe.

Yup, mobile health monitoring is the new craze – like in-line skates, or those karaoke-on-TV talent shows.

Warning system

Except, where’s the app that warns you of bacteria? That bings at you if you walk into an infected area?

EXTREME CAUTION,
CORONAVIRUS DETECTED,
DO NOT PROCEED FURTHER.

Or the one that tells you a bit more about you raised temperature and thumping heart rate. Together with your sore throat, you’re on the way to this year’s flu. Take two paracetamol and check back with your app in two hours.

It’s not as if the technology doesn’t exist – the boffins have had systems up and running since 2011.

So why can’t we have the mobile equivalent of those terrific old maps that warned “Here be beasties?”

“Here be malaria.” “Here be Covid-19.” We need never run into medical trouble again.

Believe us, it’s on the way.

Electronic detection

And surprise, surprise – it works by latching onto the electrons surrounding live bacteria.

Uh huh.

The same electrons that ionised hydrogen peroxide latches onto to kill those same bacteria when misted up by a Hypersteriliser.

So it’s possible.

But not yet available on your iPhone.

Wait for your next upgrade.
