The global pandemic caused by the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus has caused in addition to the loss of human lives and other consequences for both individuals and states. It brought with it new patterns of behavior such as the application of social and physical distancing, and intensified the use of technology for communication, surveillance and monitoring of infected people, online learning, and the like. The pandemic has caused a crisis that has affected almost all areas of human activity. It has caused the collapse of health systems, an unprecedented disruption of education systems around the world, and made business difficult and brought economic systems to their knees. The resulting crisis has called into question the preservation of the social order. Comprehensive crisis management implies a synergy of different sciences and technologies. Information and communication technologies play a very important role in this context.
