Hi, let’s talk about Covid-19 as an African man living in that suffering area of the world. Covid-19, with no doubt, has become love to live here with us. The main problem with this crisis is that it’s very fast-spreading, and We need something parallel to the spread of the pandemic to containment and surveillance it. In the successful world, They succeeded in containment and surveillance it by using data and analyzing this data to find the fast solution to treat the situation, but there’s a lucky country, such as Egypt, nature plays a major role to reduce the spreading of the pandemic. But if We looking at Africa as all, despite the lack of awareness of the seriousness of that crisis, We will find that the cases in America alone are three times the number of cases in all of Africa. Actually, maybe we’re lucky, or there’s no real counting of cases and maybe the virus is suffering from racism. Maybe if Africa had the technology, maybe, It would control the virus, but the infrastructure in Africa and human resources are bad. As an Egyptian man, I can say that there’s a rare group of people committed with the quarantine, or at least they wear masks. For me, to be honest, sometimes I forget my mask. Technology affects our brain and the way we are thinking about ourselves, and it can change our opinion about something and without exaggeration, It has the ability to determine our appreciation for ourselves. So, for our area, Africa, the best use of technology is influencing the people, at least in the cities. Otherwise, from my point of view, our area is not prepared to containment the virus or at least mitigate it, why? The main cause is unawareness.
Is the covid-19 impact on the way of the future of technology?
At the beginning of 2020, we heard that there’s a new virus that is spreading rapidly. By the time, this virus is becoming more widespread. Now, a few people are at home, using technology such as Zoom, Microsoft Team, Skype, and Moodle, this virus is reshaping the future.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) will rule the world, without a doubt. This great technology will do different jobs that take time or that are risky for humans, let me motivate your imagination and say that We will use quantum computers and AI to discover things that the mind of humans can’t. Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Google, Amazon, They have collected data about their users that maybe let them know what is the size of your underwear.
According to Blue Fountain Media, they expect, actually most of the people, to see companies directing more investment toward powering distance working, including investment in things like cloud solutions and conferencing and communication tools. And also, They expect an influx of investment in telehealth technology powering secure video appointments, secure messaging systems, online appointment scheduling systems, online prescribing, and online billing and payment systems.
Actually, I need all the people to be good and do what they can do. And if you can’t, just die in peace.
