BMC to launch Voice-based Covid-19 tests: Here’s how it works


Team Udayavani, Aug 11, 2020, 4:24 PM IST

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is all set to launch the voice-based tests that will record users voice samples in their smartphones and conduct a Covid-19 test in 30 seconds.

According to DNA,  whenever the human lungs are affected by a disease, their voices are the first to get affected. Even if the change is not perceivable in human ears due to aural limitations, a computer can easily work on the various parameters of the voice sample and decode any change in it.

How does it work?

One needs to download the voice analysis app and the patient will have to record their voice sample

The app, with the help of internet servers will match the patient’s voice sample with the voices of people who have tested negative for Covid-19 and whose samples will already be pre-loaded into the app

Voice analysis app takes the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI)  and the result will appear within 30 seconds

The smartphone-based COVID-19 voice test will be rolled out with 1,000 voice samples from the Nesco Covid-19 facility in Mumbai by the BMC.
