Consequently, telemedicine has appeared as a boon for the medical providers to become the ‘New Normal’ in times of COVID-19 crisis.

The rise in pandemic situations like coronavirus outbreak has surged the demand for telehealth systems. With the exponential growth of the virus resulting in global lockdown, people are panicking and are looking for various options to get consultations on this disease.
