“Iran Using Artificial Intelligence in Diagnosing COVID-19”

During a ceremony to unveil the smart system to diagnose COVID-19 pandemic, Iran’s Vice President for Science and Technology said the Iranian researchers have gained an achievement to diagnose COVID-19 disease by artificial intelligence.
Referring to the ability of knowledge-based companies to produce corona detection kits and medical equipment, Sorena Sattari said so far, the knowledge-based companies have entered the field of manufacturing diagnostic kits, but some companies have been able to use artificial intelligence and new technologies to provide a new way to detect coronavirus.
Sattari said the approach was a new way to accurately diagnose coronavirus using CT scan device, adding that the success was the result of the efforts made by the knowledge-based companies in the field of artificial intelligence.
He stressed: “Now this company is able to run a system with high accuracy to diagnose the coronavirus using a CT scan device. This system can be used in many hospitals.”
He continued: “As we had good achievements in the production of detection kits, we were able to gain important achievements in this field too which is much more accurate than detection kits, and this is a sign of the country’s serious attention to artificial intelligence companies.”
Sattari said: “This is great that anyone anywhere in the country can check his health or infection with coronavirus with a CT scan device.”
He said: “the activities of various research companies and universities operating in the field of biotech have now led to the production of coronavirus testing kits.”
He says that two knowledge-based companies are currently working on the corona testing kits and have delivered 250,000 kits. These companies have the capacity to produce 100,000 kits per week. In addition, another company is approved to produce the coronavirus diagnostic kits. With the steps taken so far, hopefully the country will no longer need to import kits.”
Providing the necessary equipment in the fight against coronavirus
Talking about the production of anti-coronavirus equipment, the Vice President for Science and Technology announced the presence of two knowledge-based companies in the field of ventilator production, and that the researchers at these companies have been able to produce these devices to meet the needs of the hospitals.
“Currently, the problem of many companies is the production of these ventilators. With the entry of knowledge-based companies into this field, the country’s needs have been met while these devices are offered at a low price.”
He said the device could turn an ordinary bed into an ICU bed.
Supplying medical masks by knowledge-based companies
Referring to the production of masks needed by the country, Sattari said, at the beginning of the virus outbreak, mask production was difficult, so knowledge-based companies began to produce this product to meet the country’s needs.
According to him, during the outbreak of coronavirus, the production of masks increased more than four times, which of course must have increased dozens of times more to meet the needs of the region in addition to the needs of the country.
The knowledge-based companies entering the field of medicine
The Vice President for Science and Technology also gave details of the efforts made by the knowledge-based companies in the field of drug production to treat patients with the coronavirus, stressing that these companies are working hard on drug protocols for the treatment of COVID-19.
“Clinical trials are currently being conducted by researchers at these companies, and the good thing is that we no longer need to import equipment to fight coronavirus, and shortages have been addressed by knowledge-based companies,” continued Sattari.
Underscoring that knowledge-based companies are at the forefront of the fight against the unknown coronavirus, Sattari expressed hope that the country works with these companies so that no one would be left behind hospital doors.
“Few countries in the world have been able to work coordinately to fight coronavirus, but in Iran it has been achieved as a result of the country’s investment in various areas of health, technology and innovation.”
