Digital Health: Tackling COVID-19 Pandemic Through Integrating Digital Technology and Public Health: Linking Experiences in China to the World   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has turned into a global public health crisis, evolving at an unparalleled speed and scale, debilitating economies and health systems across the globe. It became imperative for governments and organizations across the globe to take immediate actions to protect their people. China was the first country impacted by the novel virus, facing rising infection rates as it urgently worked to contain and control the spread. While fear and panic permeated the country, China's government, from central to local leaderships, rapidly mapped out their outbreak response strategies and coordinated their epidemic control plans. Technology, especially digital technology, was an instrumental part of their strategy implementation. Vast technology infrastructure quickly took action, deploying tools for information access and dissemination, population tracking and contact tracing, access to daily necessities, and many more."
