As we all know, the Internet has altered everything, and the Internet of Things has given us hope for a bright future of the Internet with Machine-to-Machine (M2M) connectivity. This review study demonstrated that smart systems based on the Internet of Things are feasible and economical to build (IoT). In the field of healthcare, the Internet of Things has made significant progress. This article examines how the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionising the healthcare industry by giving huge healthcare advantages to humanity through accessible and practical healthcare solutions specially during the hard coronavirus situation around the world. The purpose of this study is to address the function of IoT in smart hospitals, as well as its importance in dealing with pandemics. Various smart gadgets that can provide a variety of features, such as adequate monitoring of high-risk patients, tracking their bio-metric measurements, and gathering real-time data, can be used to serve community-specific demands during pandemic spread. We've also looked into other plans that can detect unforeseen events utilising a variety of sensors and display the information gathered on an LED display. The results of observational studies have indicated a high level of agreement with the hypothetical claims.
