Applications to health in Covid- 19

Author(s): Henry Rodriguez*

Due to Chinese institutional characteristics, big data technology has enabled accurate and efficient epidemic prevention and control, as well as increased the efficiency and accuracy of diagnosis and treatment of this novel kind of coronavirus pneumonia. Although big data technology has helped to contain the virus and safeguard the right to health in the COVID-19 age, it also has the potential to infringe on individual privacy rights.
