AI will help doctors predict the growth of patients with COVID-19 and allocate resources to them. This was written by the BBC with reference to representatives of the National Health Service of Great Britain (NHS). Now the NHS receives a huge number of phone calls from patients complaining of symptoms of a possible coronavirus infection. Doctors do not have time to independently enter all these data into special databases and even recruit 250 thousand volunteers to help.
Artificial intelligence, developed by Amazon, Microsoft, and Palantir, will combine this data with information from other sources to predict which hospitals require an increased number of ventilators, where to hire more medical personnel, and in which hospital room is vacated. intelligence will analyze data on the number of free and occupied ventilation machines in all hospitals, the incidence rate among staff, as well as the degree of their employment, the number of free beds -type, length of stay of patients with COVID-19 and much more.
Now in 175 countries of the world there are more than 549 thousand cases of infection with this infection. 90% of all cases occur in seven countries – the USA, China, Italy, Spain, Germany, Iran and France. At the same time, in China, where the virus came from, there is a significant reduction in the epidemic. Since the end of 2019, 24 thousand people have died from coronavirus infection, more than 124 thousand people have recovered. In Russia, there are a total of 1063 patients with coronavirus infection, three patients died, 45 were cured.
