Abstract

Digital twins, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), plays a proactive role in numerous ways during a pandemic such as COVID-19 by allowing us to make informed decisions using real-time data. According to World Health Organization (WHO), COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that predominantly spreads through body fluids, leading to a mild-to-severe respiratory illness. Considering the global health crisis due to COVID-19 and novelty of the SARS-CoV-2 virus due diligence is required in vaccine preparation and human trials. At the early stages of the pandemic, due to lack of complete knowledge on the virus, there are two main objectives: (1) treat patients as effectively as possible and (2) control the spread of the disease. IoT devices in healthcare empower the healthcare industry in identifying potential carriers of COVID-19 and quarantine. Even though IoT plays a major role in healthcare 4.0, decision making capabilities are limited due to the type of the algorithms and decision making paradigms used. Using AI, we will be able to identify critical medical conditions earlier and take necessary steps. Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) implementation has the potential to greatly reduce the mortality rate allowing us in early identification of high-risk patients, monitoring the spread of the disease, methods to limit the spread, predict mortality risk by analyzing patient’s health history, remote or in-home treatments to reduce hospital occupancy, and other techniques to significantly control the spread and treat the patients effectively.
