Deadline : 2020-06-26
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the recent outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) a pandemic, spanning 112 countries and infecting over 150,000 people. As scientists and public health experts rush to find solutions to contain the spread, much still remains unknown about COVID-19. As the world races to contain the virus, existing and emerging technologies are proving to be valuable. In fact, governments and health care facilities have increasingly turned to technology to help manage the outbreak. In China, where the first confirmed case of COVID-19 was reported, the government has launched several initiatives to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and data science into the healthcare system to track and contain the outbreak. The rapid spread of COVID-19 has sparked alarm worldwide. Many countries are grappling with the rise in confirmed cases. It is urgent and crucial for us to discover ways to use technology to contain the outbreak and manage future public health emergencies.
