(ECNS) -- Yunnan Province is implementing 5G technology in the ongoing battle against the novel coronavirus outbreak.
A system using 5G and VR has been installed in quarantine rooms.
People suspected of being infected with the virus should be quarantined at designated facilities for several days.
The system helps doctors monitor patients in quarantine and reduce their relatives' worries.
Those in quarantines are free to shut down the system at any time.
5G tech is currently being applied in work resumption, long-distance disease diagnosis and temperature checking in transport networks.
