Preventing the spread of coronavirus infection in "smart cities".

Keywords: IoT, smart city, pandemic, COVID-19, mathematical modeling, application, information system, diagram, precedent, actor.


While the world is still struggling with the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments and organizations are deciding how new technologies can be used to alleviate their effects and how future pandemics can be avoided or minimized. The use of smart city technologies has been widely discussed to reduce the risk of COVID-19. Therefore, this article discusses the implemented software solutions in different countries, and proposes a model of an information system that would provide smart health care
