Pandemics in human historical past all the time typically end in untold and typically unparalleled issues that would want nice thinkers to supply options. Researchers are constructive opportunists who don’t relent of their efforts in frequently investigating the ‘what’, ‘when’, ‘who’, and ‘how’ of each state of affairs simply to convey aid to mankind. Within the present outbreak, researchers within the various disciplines should consider how one can provide a brand new lens of understanding to the outbreak and extra importantly provide pressing options to its related challenges that threaten human buildings for survival.

For the reason that outbreak of the COVID-19 world pandemic, students within the discipline of Well being and Allied Sciences have began investigating the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, histopathology, medical analysis/therapy/administration and analysis of the COVID-19. A survey of the scholarly works on this discipline reveals nice contributions of Asian researchers, particularly from China, the place the outbreak started. These hardworking researchers by no means relented of their efforts in investigating medically, what ought to be achieved to combat the virus. These outstanding researchers saved on pursuing this path even below perilous working circumstances that resulted within the lack of some. They’ve really demonstrated and proven what researchers should do on a regular basis in consistently trying to find options to alleviate the ache of their fellow people even in instances of pandemic. Nevertheless, extra must be achieved by their colleagues in different nations. There’s a want for medical scientists to research the genome sequence of the novel coronavirus in several areas of the world. Curiously, different students within the discipline of medication are busily investigating this phenomenon to tell knowledgeably on the coronavirus, suggesting preventive measures and extra importantly, discovering medical remedy and vaccine to totally fight it. As an illustration, whereas medical scientists search by the lens of orthodox drugs, natural practitioners are experimenting on methods of utilizing natural extracts in producing drugs that may increase the immune system and/or present a robust immune buffer to combat the coronavirus. These efforts are commendable. Extra work must be achieved in trying to find extra environment friendly technique of conducting assessments on COVID-19 sufferers, finishing up contact tracing, and precautionary/preventive measures for the coronavirus.

Likewise, cellular applied sciences reminiscent of the event of latest apps for contact tracing of sufferers of the COVID-19 in addition to those that have had contact with them are being designed. As an illustration, MIT researchers are creating a system primarily based on synthetic intelligence to enrich the guide contact tracing carried out by public well being personnel that depends on short-range Bluetooth alerts from smartphones. In South Africa, ambulances endowed with automated take a look at kits and laboratory providers designed on account of diligent efforts in analysis are being utilized in testing and monitoring individuals with the COVID-19 even in distant, hard-to-reach areas. In Ghana, the Ministry of Well being not too long ago launched the COVID-19 app for tracing individuals contaminated or who’ve had contact with carriers of the COVID-19 virus. These applied sciences developed on account of rigorous research by some mechanical engineers in addition to pc {hardware} and software program engineers are being deployed to assist within the combat in opposition to the COVID-19. Extra technological instruments to combat the coronavirus are nonetheless required and devoted researchers within the discipline of engineering are consistently on the desk investigating these potentials.

Researchers in agriculture has a terrific analysis job in inventory for them. The lockdown has resulted in a excessive file of postharvest losses in nations. What are the environment friendly methods of mitigating post-harvest losses during times of pandemic and lockdowns? How can farmers use on-line advertising methods and platforms to connect with shoppers to patronize their merchandise to stop them from incurring excessive monetary losses?

This rising discipline in tourism has not been given a lot consideration, particularly in creating nations. This pandemic interval ought to be the time that researchers on this discipline would discover methods of accelerating public consciousness of good tourism and e-tourism.

Students within the Social Sciences and Humanities reminiscent of sociologists, anthropologists and culturists have the duty in investigating the sociological impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak reminiscent of methods of coping with social anxiousness on account of the pandemic. Additionally, an evaluation of the financial impacts of the COVID-19 on enterprise actions, the necessity to embark on e-business, e-marketing, e-banking and different digital types of finishing up enterprise actions are essential subjects that should be explored.

Likewise, psychologists and psychiatrists should counsel methods of coping with post-traumatic problems from quarantining, in addition to stigmatization and discrimination in opposition to COVID-19 sufferers and their family.

Furthermore, that is the time for instructional technologists to come back out with proactive methods of endeavor on-line instruction by way of varied types of studying administration methods, clever tutoring methods, and social media platforms. Artists should creatively produce animated cartoons and different types of indicators in e-formats to be promoted on-line in combating in opposition to the myths and misinformation surrounding the therapy of the COVID-19 and the necessity to expunge all types of stigmatization and discrimination in opposition to individuals who’re examined for COVID-19. After all, that is the time that researchers in all fields of research should collaborate to research pluralistic technique of combating the COVID-19 world pandemic.
