It is based on an artificial-intelligence-powered sensory system that mimics the human nose to detect volatile organic compounds, which, according to its researchers, are specific to people with COVID-19, exhaled by a person into a plastic bag.
UGM researchers discovered the unique composition exhaled by COVID-19 patients aft...
