A study conducted at the University of Central Florida in the United States revealed that artificial intelligence systems can diagnose foci of infection with the emerging coronavirus in the lung, with the same accuracy as human doctors. The study, which was published in the scientific journal “Nature Communications”, stated that this new technology can overcome some of the challenges facing disease diagnostic systems at the present time. The study team concluded that the algorithmic equation of artificial intelligence can be trained to detect foci of infection with the Coronavirus in X-ray images with an accuracy of ninety percent, and it can detect positive cases by 84 percent and negative cases by 93 percent. The “Science Daily” website, a specialist in technology, quoted the researcher, Olas Bagsey, professor of computer science at the University of Central Florida, as saying that the new algorithm can accurately detect infection with the Coronavirus, and distinguish it from the regular flu. In order to conduct the experiment, the artificial intelligence system was trained to discover foci of infection with the Coronavirus in the CT images of 1,280 patients from China, Japan and Italy, and then tested on X-ray images of 1337 patients with lung diseases ranging from Corona virus, common pneumonia and lung cancer. “We have proven that powerful artificial intelligence systems can detect cases of emerging corona virus with an accuracy of up to ninety percent,” said Bagsey. World Meters data showed that Corona virus infections around the world amounted to 35 million and 187 thousand and 192 cases. The data also showed that the total number of deaths reached one million 38,819 deaths.

In the Gulf, the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah received yesterday morning the first of the first pilgrims from inside the Kingdom, which includes 6 thousand pilgrims after permitting the performance of Umrah and the visit gradually according to four stages, while taking the necessary health precautions, and in response to the aspiration of many Muslims at home and abroad to perform the rituals of Umrah and visit .

The Iraqi News Agency “Conscious” stated that the Iraqi Ministry expects an increase in the number of HIV infections during the coming period. In turn, Tunisian Prime Minister Hicham El-Mechichi announced the reduction of working hours in a move to reduce overcrowding and reduce the speed of the spread of the new Corona virus. Tunisia is witnessing a second, accelerated wave of the virus spread, with an average of nearly 1,000 infections per day during the past week. In the last update of the Ministry of Health, the number of new infections reached more than 1223, in addition to five deaths.

In Egypt, the Ministry of Health and Population announced the registration of 109 new cases of coronavirus, and the death of 14 new cases. In the context, the Palestinian Minister of Health, Mai Al-Keela, announced the registration of 420 new cases of the emerging coronavirus, and one death. The minister explained that there are 51 patients “in intensive care rooms, including 13 on artificial respirators.”

Internationally, official media reported, citing the authorities in the Iranian capital, that schools, libraries, mosques and other public institutions in Tehran were closed for a week as part of measures to contain a rapid outbreak of COVID-19 cases. In addition, the Spanish police imposed restrictions and stopped cars on the main roads to and from Madrid after the re-imposition of general isolation measures in the city due to the high number of cases of Coronavirus. These measures prevent about 4.8 million people from leaving the metropolitan area, while restaurants and bars must close their doors early and reduce their capacity by half. In Turkey, Health Minister Fakhruddin Kuja announced that his country had begun conducting human trials on a local anti-Coronavirus vaccine. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed his hope to move to the stage of actual production of the vaccine in the near future. In the context, the total number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in Poland exceeded 100,000 after the country of 38 million announced the registration of 1934 new cases.

In a related development, Ireland’s Acting Chief Physician said that Ireland is witnessing a significant increase in the number of cases of Covid 19, after recording the highest daily number of daily infections since late April. In turn, France recorded about 17 thousand new cases of coronavirus during the past twenty-four hours, setting a new record in the number of daily infections. In Russia, the spread of the virus continued, as the daily death toll from the epidemic during the last 24 hours exceeded 10,000, for the first time since last May. In addition, the number of confirmed cases of the emerging coronavirus in Brazil has risen to 4.91 million.

The number of confirmed cases of the virus in the United States increased by 0.7%, to reach 7.38 million people. In India, Health Minister Harsh Vardan said that his country hopes to obtain up to 500 million doses of the Coronavirus vaccine by next July to immunize about 250 million people.
