Information Technology in COVID-19 Prevention

Bharat Mali, Akhil Lotlikar


The era we have these days offers us ammunition everyday, fight this pandemic in ways we in no way formerly notion viable. There are several fitness associated applications which facilitate daily display your health and you may live related everyday a consultant every day everyday even without stepping out of doors. The rapid emergence of the new coronavirus in China has brought the entire world to a standstill. In China's Hubei province, Wuhan, the outbreak was initially discovered in December of that year. The new coronavirus spread quickly to other parts of the world after leaving the mainland of China. After a few months, the sickness started to be reported in cases in more than 150 countries. The creation of panic affected the entire world. The confirmed cases were recorded as 89206 in the weeks that followed, and the global value was quite 812 (29th February 2020). This study examines emerging technologies used daily which lessen COVID-19 threats and relevant challenges every day associated with era improvement, improvement, and implementation. It also affords details and guidelines on how information structures and generation professionals can assist combat the COVID-19 epidemic. This study facilitates everyday promote future studies and technological development day-to-day produce better solutions, day-to-day address the COVID-19 epidemic and destiny epidemics.
