#He added that “#Artificial #Intelligence (AI) makes this solution an essential tool for sorting patients and separating contaminated subjects from healthy ones”. #This, being equipped with a smart camera, allows automatic and rapid testing while providing a safe environment for patients, thus supporting the accuracy of doctors’ diagnoses at an early stage of infection.

#For #Pr. #Jaâfar #Heikel, specialist in infectious diseases and public health, at the #Vinci #Clinic in #Casablanca, “in about four months, this technology has enabled us to detect more than 500 positive cases among 3000 examinations carried out”.
