Biosensors can measure nonpolar molecules, which is not possible by other conventional devices. These sensors provide high specificity and fast response time. During COVID-19, this technology has helped to identify the symptoms of the viral infection. It measures the respiration rate, heart rate, temperature, and any movement in the real time for COVID-19 patients. During any changes in the symptoms of the patient, this technology rapidly contacts and advice to the health-care service provider. It helps to monitor infected patients without any risk of contamination easily. We have identified seven significant applications of the biosensors for the COVID-19 pandemic. Tests of the COVID-19 virus can be carried out effectively by employing these biosensors more appropriately and productively. This technology has completely changed and revolted the health-care world to perform its intended functions in an ongoing situation. In the future, biosensors can offer better treatment of the patients in an epidemic and pandemic, more productively and effectively.
