The aim of this chapter is to determine the areas of using digital technology to cope with the COVID 19 pandemic. PubMed and Google Scholar article content analysis was conducted, the governments' good practices were examined and Turkish filiation implementation studies were combined to obtain digital technologies to deal with COVID-19. The areas have been determined as planning and monitoring, contact tracing, infection screening, quarantine and self-isolation, clinical management, and medical procurement. As a result of the investigation, efforts coordinated by governments around the world have focused on successfully isolating and mitigating COVID-19 to varying degrees. Countries that maintain low COVID-19 mortality rates per person are implementing strategies that include early surveillance, testing, contact tracing, and strict quarantine. The low mortality rate in Turkey has been concluded due to Turkey's Filiation application. Turkey quickly locates and isolates the contacts at the rate, of 99.9%, and filiation success is based on the detection of cases through 10 hours.
