Magen David Adom and Microsoft Israel מיקרוסופט ישראל have developed a bot based on artificial intelligence that helps understand the new coronavirus testing model and provides clear instructions for those who come in contact with a verified corona patient.
The bot, which has been implemented for use on the MDA website, is designed to allow people who have been in contact with a verified corona patient to understand the actions required of them. By answering a few short questions, the bot helps people understand if they are required quarantine and for how long, what type of test they need to do, and directs them to test locations.
Magen David Adom is Israel's national EMS and Blood Services Organization, and as such collects and provides almost all of Israel's blood supplies and products. Donation points exist across Israel, in Blood Mobiles, MDA stations and IDF bases, and many are open from early morning until late at night. In 2021, Magen David Adom volunteers and staff collected almost 270,000 units of blood, as well as blood products. These products included collections of plasma from recovered Covid19 patients in order to help critically ill Covid19 patients recover.
In the coming months, MDA's new Marcus Blood Services Center will be inaugurated, and will provide an even better service to the people of Israel by collecting and safely storing even more units of blood! Remember - each unit of blood donated can save up to 3 lives!
You can donate blood locally through our community blood drives. For more information contact Rachel@magendavidadom.com.au
