According to the survey conducted for over 1,000 small businesses by the Telzio, Inc., a VoIP service provider company, a VoIP service can help companies reduce telecommunication cost by almost 50%. In addition, the setup cost is negligible, while an on-premise phone system can cost nearly US$ 20,000.

To protect citizens from the virus, the European government has made tremendous investments in incorporating technologies in its healthcare systems to help identify signs of the virus.
