2. IoT: Internet of Things

IoT is a pioneering technology; it allows devices to be connected over a network in the hospital and planned location to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. With a broadly shared, localized sophisticated scheme of intelligent devices, IoT has enabled improvements to significant facilities in utilities, hospitals, education, and other areas during the ongoing coronavirus crisis. particularly for the medical service which performs a major task in smart health care. 

3. Blockchain for COVID-19

Blockchain technology (BT) plays a vital role in creating a platform for adequately managing the COVID-19 pandemic. Blockchain applications can monitor disease outbreaks over time by creating 'ledgers' that are both secure and updated hundreds of times per day. Blockchain technology is useful for disease control, patient traceability, and improved management of the healthcare system.
