Many readers will have seen the below as it has been shared widely in social media and received a great deal of press coverage. It's not specific to retail, but well worth sharing regardless.

Scientists at King's College London have created an app to help track and slow the Coronavirus outbreak, and identify those at risk more quickly. By taking one minute a day to self-report your symptoms, even if you are healthy, you may be able to help the scientists behind the app identify:

  • How fast the virus is spreading in your area and high-risk locations
  • Who is most at risk sooner, by sharing symptoms and simple health information.

Data and insights collected will be shared with the NHS/policy makers etc.
