INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Terrence DeFranco.
On a recent Price of Business show Terrence DeFranco, who is CEO of IOTA Communications, joined Kevin Price to discuss the role The Internet of Things (IoT) would play in the future in fighting the spread of dangerous viruses.
According to a statement from the IOTA Communications, “As of March 25th 2020, over 440,806 people have been infected with COVID-19. How can technology aid in curtailing the spread of infectious diseases that have the potential to create panic and infirm thousands of people? The Internet of Things (IoT), a network of interconnected systems and advances in data analytics, artificial intelligence and connectivity, can help by providing an early warning system to curb the spread of infectious diseases.
“China’s efforts to control the coronavirus have meant many residents stayed at home and factories just shut down. That had an unintended effect – less air pollution. Cleaner air can improve public health, maybe even save lives. Indoor air pollution has been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health and the advent of COVID-19 puts a spotlight on the need to ensure we can remove volatile indoor contaminants.
“Leveraging IoT in in our indoor environments could help prevent highly infectious diseases from spreading rapidly in today’s global world. Typically, efforts to improve the environment tend to focus on the outdoors. According to the EPA, indoor air in homes and buildings may be more polluted than outdoor air—a serious issue since people spend, on average, 90% of their time indoors. With the advent of COVID-19, we are mandated to remain indoors; further highlighting the need to ensure that our indoor air quality is good.”
