Problem Statement

An epidemic is the rapid spread of infectious disease across a community within a short span of time. Impact of epidemics on communities can be highly disastrous if not addressed effectively & efficiently. It can also have impact on multiple aspects of a nation including its economics. How quickly an epidemic is identified is the crucial factor for the authorities to act on it to line up the treatment ecosystem and also to take measures to control its spreading further. Current challenge is the delay in identifying the epidemic.  The damage due to this delay is unimaginable.  But if addressed, the damage can be controlled drastically.

Connecting the sources of relevant data and applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) would arm the respective authorities with multiple advantages to fight the epidemic with effective mitigative and control measures through swift actions.
