Editor's Note

The Curial AI test, an artificial intelligence (AI) program developed at the University of Oxford, UK, can identify COVID-19 within 1 hour of a patient arriving at an emergency department (ED), the July 31 Belfast Telegraph reports.

The AI test analyzes patient data, such as blood tests and vital signs gathered in the ED, to determine the chance of a patient testing positive for COVID-19.
