Armonk-based IBM uses "supercomputer" technology to fight COVID-19

Armonk-based IBM helping in the fight against COVID-19.
The company is joining forces with leading scientists and researchers from across the U.S. working to stop the spread through various projects, like understanding how long breath droplets linger in the air.
It is also investigating how African-Americans may be more vulnerable to COVID-19 because of a gene that pre-disposes them to the virus.
Officials at IBM say more research is underway using IBM "supercomputer" technology to better understand the virus and how to address it.
