We’re still in March, but we have to say that 2020 is really being a long year. The reason? You probably know – COVID-19. The virus that has been plaguing China since the last year now is ravaging Europe, North, and South American countries. However, it also reached countries in Asia like India. Now, the country’s government imposed the world’s largest quarantine measures with its population of around 1,3 billion people forced to stay at home.

Today, the country recorded 1,071 cases of Coronavirus infection with 29 deaths. There are huge fears that these numbers may see an expressive increase in the coming days despite the government’s efforts to hold the infection. The Chinese Behemoth Huawei is now offering its expertise and resources to help the Indian government to fight against the COVID-19.

The lack of 5G networks will slow down Huawei efforts in India

The company is proposing the use of 5G technology to drive power teleconferencing. Therefore it can help medical experts to treat patients even when they are not physically present. There are also other features that use 5G solutions. There are 5G remote imaging diagnoses, 5G medical robots and more. Unfortunately, these solutions will be slightly limited by the lack of a proper 5G field in India. The country is yet to commence the race for the next network standard. The 21-days lockdown also is delaying the plans of carriers that were betting in the new network.
