SARS- CoV- 19 Pandemic caused a health crisis that halted every aspect of human life, including health, education, industry, and science, in 2020. Total Covid -19 deaths as of 7/7/2021 documented per CDC using National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) is 596,740. Covid-19 caused mild respiratory illness to severe respiratory distress syndrome resulting in multi-organ failure. Healthcare workers, scientists, and researchers were struggling to diagnose and treat Covid-19 initially, but with the help of research scientists, new drugs like Remdesivir and Tocilizumab were discovered to save millions of lives in the past year throughout the world. As the new drugs evolved, vaccines became available, which has tremendously reduced COvid-19 morbidity and mortality. Science and technology are like twin brothers. They always go hand in hand. As the illness spread to 212 countries, researchers were struggling to handle the ever-growing big data. AI is one such technique that deals with big data using Deep learning and machine learning (DL/ML) and bridges the gap between science and technology. AI can uncover hidden opportunities in healthcare. When WHO announced Covid-19 as a pandemic, many research institutes and tech companies started using AI to assist with covid related research.
