Report after report reinforces the prevailing vulnerability of human health to the COVIT-19 that must be tackled worldwide. Using tracking and assessment systems can assist the authority to achieve this goal. This communication is a step for enhancing the effectiveness of the existing tackling approaches. The overall long-term goal for this research effort is to develop a robust monitoring system to rapidly detect the adverse impacts in pandemic(s). The overarching goal includes:
- Vulnerability and risk assessment.
- Management and protection strategies.
The COVIT-19 issue is inherently complex and has no unique methodology so far to address it. However, we believe that the computer knowledge-based technologies provide the adequate tools needed for probing and assessing the level of vulnerability and tracking its impacts (1, 2, 3). In this communication, we termed the situation as syndrome based on its widespread adverse impacts.
