Introduction to the Webinar:

Since the SARS-CoV-2 emerged in December 2019, it has quickly spread worldwide to infect over 100 million people and claimed over 2 million deaths as of 9 February 2021. Numerous efforts have been investigated on this novel coronavirus and a variety of control measures have been implemented by different countries/regions. It is an unprecedented achievement that several vaccines were developed and authorized for emergency use, within one year after the first COVID-19 cases were reported. In this talk, I will review the current evidence about control measures and treatments with the special focus on interdisciplinary studies between engineering, biological and medical researchers (such as AI assisted diagnosis/treatment and smart contact tracking).
