Imagine going through this epidemic without our phones. Sounds so boring right? So I think it is rightly said that when you lose something only you get to know its importance. Speaking of importance let us see why technology has been so important during this time.
First and foremost the identification of the diseased person is important in order to treat them. So for this digitalized thermometer has been developed. This digitalized thermometer identifies the person’s temperature with thermal sensors. Therefore this thermometer not only helps in identifying but also helps in maintaining the distance. After this when the diseased are identified they are treated with the help of ventilators. Although these ventilators take time to manufacture, due to the new technologies developed by people they are able to manufacture it faster. Now once the diseased are put in a safe position there is always a need to inform the others about this disease as well as inform them about the safety measures that need to be taken. For this purpose, the Aarogya Setu application has been developed by the government to help people understand the disease better and connect them with health services if needed. And for further prevention hands, a free sanitizer dispenser unit has been developed.
Moreover, due to the stay in order by the government and driving people to “work from home,” there is always a need for connectivity. And so for these technologies like zoom, google meet, go-meeting has been developed in just a few weeks. There have also been technologies or machines to collect data of the diseased and non-diseased. Lastly, there have been apps and websites developed for taking care of our mental health during our stay in order.
Therefore the above-mentioned points show us that without technology we would not be where we are today curing thousands and thousands of people through it. Technology will always be a boon if used rightly.
