Problems While Fighting COVID-19 Coronavirus

The main challenge is scanning millions of daily visitors without making any physical contact.

Avoiding human assistance as it is dangerous as this disease spread through humans to surface contact.

Finding the infected areas and disinfecting them is the real task.

Analyzing the medical reports of patients daily.

AI is being used to do these jobs.

AI as a Solution

Facial Recognition

Facial recognition is safer than fingerprinting as people don't have to touch anything and especially when dealing with COVID-19coronaviruss as it can spread through contact.

Such devices are capable of detecting faces and the body temperature of visitors by keeping them in public areas. If it finds that the body does not have a normal temperature, then it recognizes it.

UVD robots are placed in hospitals to help doctors to avoid human assistance much in patient's rooms as UVD robots do most of the job.

Using Robots to disinfect patient's rooms as they scan the room and terminate the virus in the places.

Drones

Now we are using drones to fight the pandemic, as we want to avoid human interaction as much as we can.

Used for Medicine supply and transportation of medical samples and thermal imaging, Drones are playing a vital role against this pandemic.

AI Systems

AI Systems are helping in analyzing the reports of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 coronavirus daily.

And a familiar pattern of disease is made so that it can b easily predicted where and in whom you can see the pandemic spreading.
