The Telehealth includes the use of communications technology for providing the healthcare services for patients who are not visiting with their healthcare provider in person. The COVID-19 outbreak has interrupted the medicine and the delivery of healthcare worldwide. The urgency of the social distancing has increased the demand for telehealth for evaluating, managing, and tracking the COVID-19 patients without the necessity for the personal examination.
