BEIJING, March 19 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Science and Technology has launched an online public service platform to release the latest technologies and innovative products for novel coronavirus epidemic control.

The first batch of 283 products was unveiled on the platform earlier this month, including rapid test kits for the virus infection, artificial intelligence-assisted diagnostic systems, efficient temperature check machines and self-cleaning materials used on walls and in elevators.

These products cover nine aspects, such as diagnosis and treatment, epidemic prevention and control, work resumption, distribution of medical and living materials and community management, according to a ministry statement.

Since its launch on March 2, the platform has solicited more than 2,000 technologies and products, providing sci-tech support for winning the battle against the epidemic, the ministry said.
