Cordio Medical today announced that it will begin a clinical trial at Haifa’s Rambam Hospital on an app-based AI system that analyzes speech to diagnose and remotely monitor COVID-19 patients.

And the company claims it can detect changes in lung fluids and the onset of inflammation even before patients do.
