10 Technology which will help fight COVID-19
Covid-19 is said to have a far-reaching impact on several communities, especially the business communities. However, this Pandemic has made it clear to all the business groups that investing in the upcoming digital technologies can certainly do a world of good.
Here are the top 10 technologies that can be used to tackle or help to fight the Covid-19 Pandemic:
Block-chain technology can be a useful technology to route the supply of several materials that are required to prevent the virus (like sanitizers, hand wash), can also be used for consultation with the public and managing several medical data.
Antigen Testing, this could be a good way to diagnose Covid-19 patients faster and quicker. Antigen test looks for the fragments of viral surface proteins as a maker of the infection. Identifying their presence (i.e. Viral surface proteins) could me a diagnosis of infection in just a matter of minutes.
Augmented reality/ Virtual reality, can be used as a digital solution for several issues. For example, the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted many industries in holding important meetings and conferences, augmented reality/ virtual reality can be used to solve these problems.
3D Printing is considered as important technology as it helps to fabricate vital supplies in hospitals amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Several public documents have been created to help in the production of Valves, masks, etc.
Robots can help eliminate human contacts by checking the temperature of people in the public and identifying the disinfected peoples. Robotics can also be used to provide care to the affected people, thus providing much- required relief to the medical staff.
Drones can be used to improve the response time for the medical staff and trimming delivery timing by carrying test kits and supplies. Drones can also be used to spray sanitizing chemicals in public places.
AI Platforms make it easier and quicker for medical staff to shortlist relevant studies that can be used to find new approaches to address the Covid-19 outbreak.
Big Data and Facial Recognition, many organizations are continuously assessing public information to develop dashboards with the help of Big Data that is continuously monitoring the Virus. A special type of Facial Recognition is being developed that can identify people even if they are wearing masks.
Telemedicine, is aerodynamic the diagnosis and the treatment process, making them quicker and better. Patients only needs to open an application and describe their symptoms and the doctors get back to them via a virtual consultation.
Mass Surveillance System, has been created to effectively fight Covid-19. It can be used to gather people’s locations, body temperatures, travel history, and other relatively useful information in a centralized database where data is being analyzed using Big Data and Machine Learning.
