This article presents a potential solution based on the Internet of Medical Things for the COVID-19 epidemic, which determines the symptoms of the disease without required any user action and warns the user. In medical studies on COVID-19 in the literature, the most common symptoms encountered since the onset of COVID-19 disease have been reported as fever, dry cough, fatigue, anorexia, anosmia, and dyspnea. The average incubation period is 5 days; therefore, it is very important to detect the symptoms even before the infected people notice the signs, and warn them. Thus, it can be ensured that they isolate themselves from society against the possible disease condition and prevent the spread of the disease. A wrist-worn device that does not physically disturb the person is proposed to track the health conditions of the person and detect the symptoms of COVID-19 at the early stages. © 2012 IEEE.
