CNN:South Korea invented speedy testing kits for New Coronavirus

Reported by Wong Nga Wah, 20 March 2020 The Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been spreading quickly throughout China in December 2019. The first identified case was found in Wuhan, over 3,000 death since its outbreak until today. South Korea has invented an efficient testing kit under 3 weeks by using AI technology already.

The Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an ongoing pandemic of the coronavirus disease. There was a serious outbreak in china. The Chinese government decided to seal off Wuhan on 23 January. In fact, it was already too late to prevent the virus spreading out.

While the disease has been quickly spreading throughout the Asia countries, South Korea’s epidemic is severe among the affected countries. Until today, South Korea had 8,652 confirmed case, and 94 deaths, is one of the world's worst affected by the coronavirus

Seegene,a biotech company which develop and sell test kits for identified different kinds of diseases in South Korean. It helped the South Korean government to test more than 220,000 people for the disease of coronavirus

“We have already working on the testing kits for coronavirus before the first confirmed case in South Korea.” Chun Jong-Yoon said, the founder and CEO of Seegene. He thought the Coronavirus will impact on Korea after hearing the news from China. “We didn’t expect coronavirus will that quick has an outbreak to happen in Korea and no one expected at all,”

Seegene investigated a better testing kit by using artificial intelligence (AI) by using only three months successfully. And test less than two hours weeks and released the result within four hours, which is faster than the test before.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has officially claimed the outbreak as a pandemic. Several tips provided by WHO remind everyone how to prevent the disease:
