Big Tech and Healthcare

What surprises me a lot is that all the big tech with billions of dollars spending on cloud infrastructure, quantum computing and machine learning are not yet publishing how they are utilizing the assets to speed up the therapy and vaccination discovery process for Covid-19.

Apart from the proposed contact tracing solution and an information portal, there is no solid contribution towards helping the governments on creating the vaccinations

Verily(An Alphabet company) has been doing research on AI & ML based model on disease diagnosis. With millions of people being diagnosed for Covid, why werent they using this data to build models to predict if someone is infected or not, based on easy to do X-rays test than time consuming actual Covid test?

If they were doing this already why isn’t the information public yet?
