COVID-19 Database on Consortium Blockchain
Abstract: In the world where everyone is fear struck on the on-going pandemic COVID-19. There are hundreds of patients in India admitted for COVID-19. What about the patients’ data? It is getting stored in a centralized database and many people are updating it [Crowd-sourced]. These may be data manipulation or there may be false data updated by faulty nodes. This problem can be solved by storing the metadata in a consortium blockchain and the main data on the Inter-Planetary File System.
Everyday reports of patients are coming from many hospitals. These have to be updated as soon as possible to the government trackers to provide the latest updates to people. It might get manipulated or not reach the trackers or it might be hacked and erased from the central database. To reduce such problems we can use a consortium blockchain technology integrated with Inter-Planetary File System. Blockchain is a distributed ledger-based technology where the data stored is confidential and immutable. IPFS is a decentralized database for storing and accessing files governed by some rules and uses content-based addressing.
