The COVID-19 corona virus has affected 81.9 million people with 1.79 million deaths in the entire world and has transformed into a global pandemic. The disease has effected 10.2 million people in India with about 148K deaths till December 2020. The COVID-19 virus is a highly infectious disease, which mainly spreads through the droplets generated by the cough, sneeze or exhale of an infected person. The disease spreads rapidly in crowded and poorly ventilated places. The virus quickly contaminates on floors and surfaces, people touching their eyes, nose and mouth after their contact with these contaminated surfaces get infected with this viral disease. As there is no cure and a vaccine currently for COVID-19, tracing, testing, tracking and treating are the most efficient tools to combat it. In order to track patients the existing methods implement fall detectors and routers which are effective in tracking patients in smaller areas. In order to overcome this drawback, a patient tracking technique COVID-Doctor (CODOC) has been proposed in this work which implements Global Positioning System (GPS) and multiple sensors to track patients in larger areas.
