Health Mapping & AI Tools making people tech-savvy amidst Covid-19 lockdown

Since India has crossed 1,60,000 Corona cases, the government is actively tracing contacts to help control infections.

Experts are now speculating that the post-pandemic era will bring a new normal opportunity, as people would prefer to go out with a bottle of sanitizer and face mask.

As the talk of post lockdown schemes emerges, people will have to make some changes in their regular functioning. A post-lockdown world would have to be more vigilant, more sanitary, and still maintain a social distance. AI can be quite helpful for scenarios.
