The new coronavirus detection system by Alibaba makes use of Computed Tomography images. It is touted to finish the disease recognition process in merely 20 seconds when in comparison, it could take doctors anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes to analyze a CT scan of one suspected patient to deliver a clinical diagnosis.
