Title: The covid-19 vulnerabilities and the ubiquitous artificial intelligence linkages


The study aims to conduct an exploratory review of the Covid-19 pandemic by focusing on the theme of Covid-19 pandemic morbidity and mortality, considering the dynamics of artificial intelligence and quality of life (QOL). A review of the literature, anecdotal evidence, and reports on the morbidity of COVID-19, including the magnitude of its destructive consequences in nations such as the United States, Africa, the United Kingdom, China, and Brazil, among others, were used in this research work. This study's outcomes revealed that vulnerable populations feel the coronavirus's destructive impacts more ferociously. The elderly, front-line workers, marginalized populations, visible minorities, and others are among them. The issue in Africa is particularly formidable due to a lack of infrastructure and financial and human resources. Furthermore, scientists are effectively employing AI technology to improve the creation of vaccinations and pharmaceuticals. The pandemic also helped us recognize the necessity of inter-personal cooperation and shared ideals. The importance of healthcare workers and other frontline workers in reacting to the epidemic is also recognized. In addition, new techniques and effective health interventions are critical in treating the crisis's negative impacts. This highlights the lessons that must be learned from the pandemic to deal with future waves of epidemics as efficiently as possible. One of these future implementations is ensuring the health and well-being of the elderly. Another crucial future implication is to use AI capabilities best to combat the pandemic at all phases.
