Description

A team from the University of Toronto has created a new way for health-care workers to monitor COVID-19 patients — without having to set foot in their hospital rooms. 

It all began about two weeks ago when a call came from Mount Sinai Hospital asking the university's engineering department to figure out a way to monitor vital signs both continuously and remotely.
