Why is it important?

For this pandemic situation of COVID-19.


The intervention of virus-infected persons is mainly lying on diagnostic methods and COVID-19 is also not the exception. Thus, the major research direction on viral diagnosis is aligned towards biological and biomedical based approaches. In contrast, there is plenty of scope in wearable devices towards early intervention and continuous health status monitoring.
