Technology these days, I think it’s relevant to be used. Actually, this virus back then is already exist and really common then in 2019 the new version of this virus emerged and spread all over the world by human being. To me the current technologies is already good enough to handle this issue, but just because late handling that makes this virus fast in spreads, people around the world got infected. Before I jump into the main problem I want to give the definition the Covid-19.
According to WHO (World Health Organization) The infectious disease caused by a newly identified coronavirus is Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Most COVID-19 infected people should suffer mild to moderate respiratory disease and recover without treatment. The best way to prevent or delay transmission is to be well aware of the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes, and how it spreads. Elderly people, and people with existing medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer develop severe diseases.
Wrap your hands or use an alcohol dependent rub regularly to protect you and other people against infection and do not touch your skin.
COVID-19 spreads most of the time when an infected person coughs or sneezes, through droplets of saliva and nose release, so it is also necessary to use respiratory etiquette. I believe that the technology has improve remember that this is 2020 already. Wuhan as the city that confirmed the first case emerged. China covered up the virus both from its citizens and from the world at the beginning of the SARS epidemic.
Even if China seems more open in these things, it may still not be certain that any people are convinced.
Artificial intelligence may be a way to prevent these confidence issues. Based on what I have read about how the virus spread, there are technology called Bluedot is located in Toronto. Toronto-based health monitoring can beat both the WHO and CDC platform associated the spreading of the virus. This platform calling its self as ‘a digital health company that tracking and anticipate the spreading of the virus by using the data analytics’. How does it work? This data playing with information about airlines data, new reports, and information of the animal diseases.
In Indonesia there are 100 hospital that can handle this coronavirus outbreaks and well-prepared to anticipate the fast spreading Covid-19. They have installing thermal scanners, medical check-up post to examine the carriers. Also, Indonesian Health Ministry has stated that they already released official protocols for handling the Covid-19. This meant to control the action of the people when they gather in the public such as airports, public transportation that protocols exist.
