As the country wages war against the silent enemy, technology and innovations form part of its armament. 

Technology has taken a significant role in the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. With restrictions on physical interactions, people turned to digital technology to keep themselves connected with family and friends; stay up to date with the latest information; and continue their work, education and businesses while in the safety of their homes. 

From video games to movies, technology also provided millions on lockdown with different venues to entertain themselves during the implementation of community quarantine measures. 

Innovations such as contact tracing technology also paved the way for new ways to combat the virus.

While the fight is still long, technology attempts to keep it bearable if not short.
