Aaditya Thackeray, Shiv Sena MLA, recently took to Twitter to inform that the BMC is all geared up to do a pilot of AI-based detection test using voice samples for the coronavirus.

Thackeray added that the regular RT-PCR tests are to continue, along with this, the new age technology is being introduced in order to detect COVID-19 patients.

Moreover, he shared infographics of the same which stated that the pilot project will start at the Nesco grounds, in Goregaon. The steps to test an individual are as follows.

  • The suspected patient will be asked to speak where the voice analysis will be conducted. Moreover, the vital parameters too will be taken.
  • The sample of the voice will then be analyzed by the app powered by a programme based on Artificial Intelligence.
  • The sample will then be compared with the voice of a person who is not suffering from the coronavirus to provide effective analysis.

The app is also said to come preloaded with thousands of voice patterns in order to provide results.

On the other hand, the BMC has been religiously conducting RT-PCR tests across the city which has been providing accurate results. The RT-PCR test starts with a simple swab taken from inside a person’s throat or nose. The RT-PCR tests are real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction tests conducted for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in upper and lower respiratory specimens.
