Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been declared a pandemic due to its rapid spread, generating a high number of deaths worldwide. This phenomenon takes place in a context of digital health, which uses emerging information technologies. In this article, we describe how these tools have been used to confront COVID-19, providing benefits at several levels, including clinical (such as best clinical record of cases, remote care or diagnostic assistance using artificial intelligence), epidemiological (systems geographic information), academic (e-learning) and personal level (use of mobile applications or search for information through social networks). Reviewing the use of these tools around the world allow us to replicate best practices in order to improve the management of COVID-19 by governments.
