Our greatest chance to beat COVID-19
If not the deadliest, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is certainly the most serious contagious disease to have crossed continents in modern times. One of the biggest challenges is screening en masse for detection of infectious and or contagious individuals. Today’s methods are rudimentary (measuring only temperature) or very expensive and time consuming (swab test). Detecting infectious people at an early stage is key for disease control and management.
A joint venture between Spinview and VR Media Technology (www.vrmediatech.com), has created an effective weapon against coronavirus. In seconds, Spinview’s revolutionary device can, using a matrix of sensors, identify a wide range of symptoms to indicate infection.
Once the device is installed, you can perform unlimited tests without having to rely on consumable materials. The device is able to operate en masse and report to a central server for infection monitoring and tracking. Accuracy is much higher than with non-contact thermometers, as the system can scan thousands of measurements per second across an entire spectrum of sensors, including, but going well beyond only temperature.
COVID-19 is known to affect physiological parameters such as temperature, respiration, hydration, sweating, flushing and coughing. PandemiCam is a non-invasive multi-sensory device which is designed to collect information from multiple sensors to ‘read’ the COVID-19 symptom parameters in every person it scans.
Through the use of mathematics and artificial intelligence (AI) the scanner will enable widespread screening with ease. The collected data is fused together by the system and feed through AI, to provide an accurate and fast detection of infectious people with far greater clarity than any single parameter test available today.
Appropriately named PandemiCam, this complex scanning system can limit the spread of COVID-19, helping to manage precious healthcare resources in real-time.
“Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence are two of the most effective weapons we have in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak” Dr Katarina Gospic, leading Neuroscientist
Where current single parameter tests such as temperature have to be measured individually, PandemiCam is able to screen groups of people and even scan at a distance for the safety necessitated by this particular disease. Against a city grid, PandemiCam allows for the real-time mapping of symptoms. Quick identification of hotspots allows for localised restrictions and resource allocations, reducing financial damage and human danger. Continuous en mass screening is key to win the battle against the coronavirus. The number of times we can repeatedly screen population(s), the better we will be at detecting infectious people and thus slowing and limiting the rate of spread.
Continuous en masse screening is key to winning the battle against coronavirus. In the US there are currently 65,000 tests being conducted per day (https://covidtracking.com/us-daily/). Even if they were able to increase this to 100,000 per day, in order to cover the entire US population of those over the age of 18 (330 million) it would take 7 years.
Spinview’s screening would bring that figure down and enable mass screening and information on its spread in seconds. The system will alert healthcare professionals to identify those in need of treatment instantly – no waiting for lab results. Medical staff can carry out predictive triage – understanding based on the data received, correlated with the known passage of the disease through the system, what a patient is likely to experience and the support they will need. The system could also be used to ensure the health and wellbeing of the general public in order to resume freedom of movement. By using the device within public transport and infrastructure systems airports, for example, could include this as part of their security checks in order to keep airports free of COVID-19 or other diseases. This would ensure that future outbreaks could be contained and monitored more effectively while keeping the economy going and people moving.
PandemiCam scans en masse, in seconds and will save lives.
