Integration of Emerging Technologies for Enhanced Treatment of Infectious Diseases
In this paper, we describe the limitations of the conventional medical met hods in treatment of i nfectious diseases, like the novel Coronavirus, COVID 19. Furthermore, we demonstrate the integration of the most known emerging technologies which can be applied with success in combination with the conventional methods to detect and fight against various diseases. Such a robust system will provide accuracy and speed in detection and treatment of infectious diseases from which the human population suffers.
