The Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is spreading its jaws wide open to affect more people in the world and India every day. While the world seems to be already on their knees due to the pandemic situation by Corona Virus, India is still giving a tough fight to the deadly virus. The country has called for a nation wide lockdown for 21 days on March 25. However, the reporting of new cases each day isn’t diminishing even today. On Monday, March 30, the total positive confirmed cases of COVID-19 touched 1251 in the country while the deaths reported due to COVID-19 touched 32.
Several of corporates have stepped ahead to provide financial support to the Indian government to facilitate better equipments and tools to battle the Corona Virus pandemic. Tata Group with Rs. 1500 crore, Reliance Industries Ltd. with Rs. 500 crore, Adani group with Rs. 100 crore, and other corporates have stepped forward to help the country in this tragic epidemic condition.
The technology giant from China, Huawei, has extended technological support to India by taking its experience from China. As per a report by ET, the Chinese tech giant has offered to provide 5G+ thermal imaging technology to contain spread of COVID-19. The technology was one of the technologies deployed in China which showed it’s effect in it’s home country.
The company has also offered to deploy it’s remote temperature monitoring technology in India which will also help contain the deadly virus. The technology will remotely detect the temperature of the moving object accurately which can alarm about the same on realtime basis.
The company has unveiled a range of 5G technology driven solutions which worked effectively in China to contain the infection. These include the technology to remotely diagnose and attend the COVID-19 patients which will safeguard doctors from getting infected by the virus themselves.
The company has also offered to provide 5G medical robots that can help the COVID-19 patients in their quarantine zone. The unfortunate fact about these technologies is that these work on 5G network which is yet not operational in India. Hence, it will be interesting to see how Huawei can help India through it’s these technologies in the absence of 5G connectivity.
