Since there is no efficient vaccine, the alternative that divided opinions for a long time is an old medicine called hydroxychloquine. The aim of this study is to synthesize the different highlights of the most important studies published in the last months. After a precise study of the available bibliography dealing with this subject and the addition of an adapted example, which is the current situation of Algeria, we concluded that in brief, given the inexistence of a better solution, this protocol must be applied in view of its effectiveness, while waiting for the vaccine.</p> Hani Amir Aouissi, Mostefa Ababsa; Aissam Gaagai Copyright (c) What to do more with Electronic Health Record: Requirement of pandemic COVID-19 <p>COVID 19 proved that maintaining health should get high priority over the economy. This situation creates a need to track contact details, the traveling history. There are many different methods based on WBAN, AI, Bluetooth, SIR model. But, most of these systems require the user to himself which is unable to collect accurate information. To collect these details more accurately researcher has proposed a system which consists of interlinking of Electronic Health Record with contact details. This proposed system used three scenarios consisting of traveling details, visiting other places and ordering goods and services.</p> Prachi Gurav Copyright (c)
