The viral video from Israel shows how routine check-ups can be done through advanced technology

Business magnate Anand Mahindra is known for sharing creative and innovative videos and content that he comes across the internet. Amid the Coronavirus outbreak, the Chairman of Mahindra and Mahindra group has been sharing out-of-the-box ideas regarding  the lockdown and how people can effectively practice social distancing while in public.

In his latest post on Twitter, Mahindra has posted a video that shows remote healthcare can be a reality amid the pandemic outbreak. The viral video from Israel  shows how routine check-ups can be done through advanced technology. It shows a doctor leaving a home hospitalization kit at the doorstep of a patient suffering from Coronavirus. The kit contains a phone tablet, a camera and a motion-sensing wireless stethoscope.

 Further in the video, a doctor is seen talking to the patient through the tablet and examining her throat through the camera.  The doctor is seen examining her throat though a monitor. He then asked the patient to place the stethoscope on four points on her chest. The points are marked on the monitor that indicate the condition of the chest. As the patient was breathing clearly, the doctor ruled out the diagnosis for pneumonia.

Mahindra wrote in the tweet, “This may not just be the way to handle Covid 19 but also the future of remote healthcare,” adding that he is not surprised that the video of such an innovative concept has come from Israel.

Posted on Thursday, the video garnered more than 127,000 views with over 6,600 likes and was retweeted more than 1.700 times. Users commenting on the video that posted about the impressive concept, saying that it truly shows the future of health care.
