COVID19 stepped into the world with a sheer amount of fear, cries and less hopes to survive. Within 7 months of its stay on the earth, it has affected more than 9 million people worldwide. Those who are left are learning how to adapt the 360-degree shift in their lifestyle. According to the latest reports of the World Health Organization, the virus isn’t leaving us anytime soon, we must learn how to live it. The digital is one of the best mediums to survive in this virus. If you’re familiar with the digital world you can’t only learn online but can also earn online.

These countries haven’t limited their solutions to lockdown and shutting off the businesses but they are planning ahead to help people cope with the pandemic and adopt this new lifestyle.
For example, the use of drones, apps, smart security cameras and robots can be used to detect coronavirus cases and people without SOPs. Hong Kong, China and Singapore are using contract-tracing to monitor the Covid19 cases.
Similarly, to implement smart lockdown in the UAE, the government is using Artificial Intelligence to slow human mobility especially in the busiest city Dubai. The UAE police are introduced to a program called ‘Oyoon’ which will help to track criminal activities through facial, voice and license plate recognition. This program will also help the Dubai 2021 smart vision and will help the government to reduce crime ratio and traffic congestion.
In addition to it, the healthcare startup in UAE called Nabta Health will use AI to detect the symptoms of Coronavirus. Moreover, the culmination of AI, machine learning and blockchain will help UAE to cut down the effects of the pandemic in the future.
To prevent the further spread of the virus, Dubai taxi vehicles will have isolators installed to separate the passengers and the drivers. However, the construction work has been halted at the moment but the authorities are planning to resume the operations with safety measures.
The government has started working on Dubai to transform it into a smart city and making it the first city to embrace technology in all mediums. According to him, the smart city plan will make Dubai the happiest place on earth and also the hub for business and technology. They also mean to make the best use of AI technology to keep the businesses running during the pandemic.
