COVID-19 pandemic, robotics, digital technology, healthcare


Using current technologies, many nations have swiftly responded to the unanticipated Corona-virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Robotics, AI, and digital technology, for instance, have been used in hospitals and public spaces to preserve social distance, minimize person-to-person contact, enable quick diagnosis, monitor viral spread, and provide sanitation. In this article usage of technology in the pandemic situation is dis-cussed and several examples are given to better understand its implementation specific to COVID-19 scenario.
