In the world that is full of unpredictable and countless number of uncertainties, it is a great challenge that we have to observe and adapt in order to overcome such swiftly shifting challenges. However, over the past three years, people around the world have been facing one of the most critical health issues caused by coronavirus pandemic that has taken a toll on lives and livelihoods of people and obstructed healthcare systems and services. Quick responses and changes are needed to advance existing health technologies and to make sure that everyone is safe and healthy.
The ongoing pandemic has taught us to prepare and to ensure that we can prevent future potential threats, especially in health care sector.
