To create this platform we'll have doctors volunteering to create medical guidance on how to deal with COVID-19 if you're infected. How will it work? we'll start with the patents after testing positive for COVID-19 they'll take a to-go bag that has all the medical aid they need through the entire period and with a personalized code that they will use to access the online medical guidance prepared by experts in the field for similar stabilized cases, and from there the doctors we'll keep checking up using online video calls and the patents we'll have the option to go back to the hospital if needed. The benefits of this platform are; we'll avoid overcrowded hospitals and use people's houses as hospital rooms, we'll have more space to cure the more serious cases in the hospitals, and we'll decrease the hospital expenses overall.
