The epidemic of coronavirus disease which is called COVID-19 is dispersing all over the world in a few months. The traditional health care systems face new challenges associated with the constant increase of infected persons with this disease. In the current time, the integration of smart medical sensors and devices of the Internet of Things (IoT) proposed the new health care domain which is called the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). With this technology, accuracy, reliability, efficiency, and effectiveness are improved in the health domain. With the combination of cloud computing with IoT architecture, the smart healthcare system is designed which is ableto support real-time applications when Artificial Intelligence (AI) processing on a vast data which is collected by wearable sensors network. The emergence of IoMT has initiated the vital change in assisting the management of diseases, improving the diagnosis of disease, treatment methods and also reducing the cost and errors in healthcare. The implementations of this technology in the health domain not only improve the healthcare quality for patients but also help the healthcare workers. This paper studies the use of IoT solutions throughout this pandemic period in a health care system, starting from early health monitoring solutions from wearable sensors up to a final recovery from COVID-19. IoMT can play an imperative role during this pandemic time and facilitate to stop the spread of the virus, recognize the patient who has been infected with this virus and also help to control the coronavirus infection in real-time.

Keywords: COVID-19, Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), Internet of Things (IoT), Ontology.
