As the COVID-19 crisis unfolds governments, and international and regional organizations, have stepped up to mitigate the immediate sufferings of the population and prepare the masses for the long-term consequences. The global economic slowdown sent major shockwaves to rich and poor countries that were dependent on exporting primary commodities and revenues from transport and tourism. This sluggish economic situation has resulted in unemployment, declining work wages, diminishing fiscal revenues, and long-term consequences for global development.
The idea for improved connectivity between people, things, applications, data, cities, and transport systems in smart networked communication environments has led to several ground-breaking innovations and research. In comparison to the 4G standard and radio technology, the fifth generation of mobile technologies or 5G goes way further than the 4G LTE standard in terms of higher capacity, speed, and ultralow latency. With a predicted 5G speed of up to 10 Gbps, newer networks are estimated to perform 100x faster than their predecessors.
Skin is the largest organ of the body and is solely responsible for the aesthetic and functional aspects of the human body. Therefore, taking care of it automatically takes the forefront.

Infecting more than 16 million lives, the COVID-19 pandemic has been one of the worst humanitarian crises. Researchers are still evaluating the depth and intensity of disruption caused by this outbreak on the global economy, healthcare infrastructure, and society. Being at the center stage with unforeseen demand for ventilators, diagnostic tests, PPE kits, and other critical medical supplies, the MedTech industry quickly rose to respond to the challenge.
As the world population reached 7.6 billion in 2017, sustainably feeding the entire globe has been paramount since then. In a study conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, around 1.3 billion tons of food generated for human consumption is wasted across the supply chains every year. It’s not just this global food wastage, but rising consumption of meat, eggs, aquaculture, and dairy use, occupies around 83% of the farmlands worldwide and contributes 56-58% of global food emissions.
