How will technology help to reduce the risks of transmission?
Technology can be helpful in various ways, explained as follow:
By aiding researchers to find drugs – Needless to say, we all are eagerly waiting for the vaccine. At present, many researchers and doctors across the sphere are toiling to find the vaccine for this pandemic. Technology has been aiding all these researchers to find required drugs that are making their work easy to a certain level and is making the process quick. Either for the components of vaccine and running trials of it, technology is aiding in every process for the formulation of the vaccine.
Encouraging contactless movement – Contact less movement, means social distancing. With the support of technology, it is possible to maintain social distancing. Solutions like “H-Guard” prevent people from violating social distancing norms by alerting them as soon as they come into contact with other people. In addition to this, many restaurants and resorts across the world are now using robots to serve their customers, restricting people to come in close contact with each other.
To monitor people – The government and local authorities are utilizing technology in the form of CCTV cameras that can check the temperature and through drones to keep watch on people. Technology has made monitoring easy for the local authorities as they don’t have to appoint officials at every street to discourage the breaking of social distancing norms and are taking strict action against the people who are not adhering to norms.
Increasing transparency - During the pandemic, technology is very supportive to keep people updated about their surroundings. Applications like Microsoft Bing launched to provide news diseases related news to the people. With the help of technology, the government and the international organizations are able to curb down the fake news. In the prevailing circumstances, it is crucial to maintain transparency and, with the help of technology, it is possible.
Supports tracking and tracing – For steering the infection due to the transmission of the virus, tracking and tracing is instrumental and technology can help us in both. With the help of technology, we can easily track the people who came in contact with the infected person and can trace them and their family to make sure that medical treatment provided them timely. Technology can also identify the people who came out despite being in the quarantine period and strict action can be taken against such people.
The global pandemic today is the biggest health risk we have ever come across in the last few decades. From top leader to commoner, this medical emergency has clutched everyone under its grip.
