As the COVID-19 pandemic expands globally, it has caused unprecedented disruption to humans’ activities affecting the way health organizations operate including healthcare delivery. With social distancing being a key preventative measure of COVID-19, proper delivery of healthcare services becomes a challenge as both patients and healthcare practitioners are concerned about the risk of potential infection.

But as we continue to grapple with the “sky-scraping” deaths around the world, it seems like all the focus on healthcare has gone to COVID-19 while other health needs of the population are being given less attention. Most patients want to seek medical help for conditions that are non-COVID-19 related but they can’t due to the observance of social distancing and concerns of contracting COVID-19 thereby posing a threat to individual lives.

The burden on healthcare systems that have been increasingly overwhelmed needs to be relieved, with the right measures put in place and approaches such as telemedicine taken, the quality of life of the people will not be adversely affected. To ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing amidst this unprecedented event, a telemedical approach needs to be implemented.

Recently, telemedicine has become remarkably important, due to the pandemic and it has become the safest interactive system between patients and medical practitioners due to the mandatory social distancing.
