South Korea is combating Coronavirus (COVID-19) by relying on its new technological up-gradation and innovation. The country over the years has invested in an advanced digital platform for big-data mining and Artificial Intelligence (AI), making them one of the leading providers of technology around the world. Smart use of big-data analysis, AI-powered advance warning system and implementation of intensive observation systems by the country have played a vital role in getting the situation under control.
South Korea is one of the countries that were affected by Coronavirus, but the country was able to effectively control the situation in a short time. The government-run big data platform stores information for all the citizens and the other foreign nationals traveling in the nation will then be integrated by government organizations, hospitals, financial services, mobile operators, and other essential services into it.
The country is working towards integrating the data from all the different sources and analyze information, with all different real-time responses produced by the platform are then promptly conveyed to all the government officials using the AI-based applications. If a person has tested positive for the COVID-19, all the people in the vicinities are provided with infected persons different types of travel details, commuting maps and activities details for the previous two weeks through a mobile notification sent using the push system.
Government-run health services even receive the information on the person’s contacts, making it easier to track those whom the infected person had met during this time. So this makes it easier for the government agency under medical observation, and tests are conducted. South Korea is even introducing drive-through Coronavirus testing, in which a person drives the car through a mobile testing lab. The patient gets his samples collected while sitting inside the vehicle, and the results of the test can be obtained within a few minutes.
If found infected, they are isolated and taken to other specialized facilities. If an infected person lived or worked at a large building, temporary medical centers are set up there to provide medical tests for all residents.
