On 1 January 2017 The Guardian reported:
Jacket would distinguish pneumonia's symptoms up to four times faster than a doctor, in battle against illness that kills half a million children under five in sub-Saharan Africa every year. Ugandan graduate Brian Turyabagye was studying engineering when his friend's grandmother fell seriously ill. . . . He watched as doctors diagnosed malaria and prescribed various treatments accordingly. [But she had pneumonia.] Turyabagye, 24, was so shocked . . . that he began researching methodologies for diagnosing pneumonia and its treatments. '... the signs for malaria and pneumonia are very similar, so it is difficult for health professionals to differentiate.' So Turyabagye began designing a biomedical smart jacket that would distinguish pneumonia's symptoms.
