Efficient machine learning classifier to detect and monitor COVID-19 cases based on internet of things framework

Felcia Bel, Sabeen Selvaraj


In this research work, coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been considered to help mankind survive the present-day pandemic. This research is helpful to monitor the patients newly infected by the virus, and patients who have already recovered from the disease, and also to study the flow of virus from similar health issues. In this paper, an Internet of things (IoT) framework has been developed for the early detection of suspected cases. This framework is used for collecting and uploading symptoms (data) through sensor devices to the physician, data analytics center, cloud, and isolation/health centers. The symptoms of the first wave, second wave, and omicron are used to identify the suspects. Five machine learning algorithms which are considered to be the best in the existing literature have been used to find the best machine learning classifier in this research work. The proposed framework is used for the rapid detection of COVID-19 cases from real-world COVID-19 symptoms to mitigate the spread in society. This model also monitors the affected patient who has undergone treatment and recovered. It also collects data for analysis to perform further improvements in algorithms based on daily updated information from patients to provide better solutions to mankind.
