On January 6th the American CDC issued a notification about a flu-like outbreak in China. They were followed by the WHO on January 9th. And since then, that virus became known as the coronavirus or COVID-19, and the outbreak became a global phenomenon. But what not many know is that a Canadian health monitoring A.I. platform called BlueDot beat both of them to the punch, as it issued a warning on December 31st, a full week before the world caught on. The current epidemic might be just another type of coronavirus like the recent SARS and MERS outbreaks, but tech companies join the fight against it with every innovation they’ve got now. This brings virus management, detection, prevention and treatment to a whole new level. We don’t speak about washing your hands or face masks here. Instead, here are 5 ways how innovative technologies already make a difference – let’s see how these shift the concept of epidemics completely! – Artificial intelligence detecting the spread of the epidemic – Interactive maps for monitoring – New technologies for faster detection – Genome sequencing to find vaccines – Robots to the rescue Read our magazine for further updates and analyses on the future of healthcare: https://medicalfuturist.com/magazine Follow us on Patreon for exclusive videos, podcast, personal analyses – along with many others: https://www.patreon.com/themedicalfut…
