BANGKOK (NNT) – King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, has again introduced new technology in the hope of raising Thailand’s healthcare capability.
The items of technology invented by King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang together with King Mongkut Chaokhun Tahan Hospital Foundation included Thailand’s first ever Ai-operated detector able to detect a mutating Coronavirus.
According to the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine of KMITL, Dr. Anan Srikiatkhachorn, there are currently eight major coronavirus strains that are being monitored worldwide as they tend to mutate more than others, as well as being able to cause more severe symptoms.
