Baguio is the first city in the country to use Huawei's COVID-19 screening tool

Mayor Benjamin Magalong speaks with DZMM Teleradyo's Gerry Baja about COVID-19 screening alternatives such as Huawei's AI-powered COVID-19 CT scan that you can read more about at this link.

It was developed by the Huazon University of Science and Technology and by Lanwon Technology with Huawei Cloud developed AI-assisted quantitative medical imaging analysis service specifically for COVID-19 that offers 98 percent accuracy with results released in just 2 minutes.

Three people who were under investigation for possible COVID-19 infection participated in the initial testing with Huawei's diagnostic tool. The three tested negative from Huawei's tool and are scheduled to be validated by the tests kit from the Department of Health. These tests kit reveal the result 4-6 days after which takes too long compared to Huawei's solution.

Currently, Baguio has one confirmed case from a 55-year old woman with five others who tested "highly probable" from Huawei's COVID-19 CT scan that is currently waiting for the Department of Health's confirmatory test.
