The technological and other issues involved in the pandemic are both nuanced and complex. The countries are using robots to disinfect hospitals and deliver medical supplies to data enabled detailed mapping of the outbreak, and to tracking potential carriers. Many such advanced technologies are being deployed across the globe to fight the coronavirus outbreak. As the world adjusts to its new normal, business leaders need to rethink strategies to harness the most potential technologies that would help drive resilience and make them emerge from the crisis stronger.
India has taken the global lead not just from the humanitarian angle, but also from research and technology perspective by providing innovative solutions useful for the global community.
