B) Finding Drugs
Today, the world is looking for ways to stop the spread of coronaviruses and find effective treatments. Technology is becoming an enabler to speed up the process. AI plays an important role in proposing vaccine ingredients by understanding the protein structure of viruses and enabling medical researchers to browse dozens of related research papers at an unprecedented pace.
C) Increasing traceability and transparency
In terms of pandemic management, big data analytics can help identify infected individuals quickly, connect with them, track who they have come in contact with, and so on. Facial recognition technology with CCTV cameras can help identify infected people who break the rules and move out despite being isolated
Microsoft Bing launches an interactive COVID-19 map to provide in-depth coverage of the disease in the news and the Arogya Setu app of India is also too helpful
D) Helps the Common Man
The result is widespread chaos, panic buying, procurement of essential items, price increases, road violence, discrimination, conspiracy theories, and so on.

AI risk assessment and forecasting with artificial intelligence is becoming an important part of healthcare today & AI-based data analysis and predictive models enable the healthcare professionals by more accurate predictions can be made about the spread of diseases, drugs, treatments, etc.
Contact-less movement and deliveries through autonomous vehicles, drones and robots
Self-driving cars, drones, and robots help when human contact is avoided. With autonomous vehicles, infected people can be easily transported to health facilities without endangering the lives of healthy people. The robot can be used to provide food and kitchen utensils, disinfect hospitals and monitor roads. Drones can be used to identify infected people for food distribution, population surveillance, test kits and medicines to transport bodies for thermal imaging, disinfection, etc.
Technology supported temperature monitoring
Wireless thermometers and other infrared devices for measuring body temperature are important medical devices used in offices, airports, hotels, hospitals, train stations, shops, and other public places such as checkpoints. These technologies help measure body temperature remotely and are effective in identifying people who need further investigation. Automatic thermal monitoring with facial recognition makes the process faster and more efficient.
In today's world, technology is constantly changing. That's why it's important for businesses and businesses to integrate technology management into the strategies they use to stay productive and competitive.
