In December 2019, the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection that caused pneumonia spread to Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. Fever, dry cough, and fatigue are typical clinical manifestations of COVID-19, frequently accompanied by pulmonary involvement. SARS-CoV-2 is highly contagious, making most people in the general population susceptible to infection. One of the most popular technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), has much potential for combating the coronavirus outbreak. It has transformed real-world objects into sophisticated virtual ones. The Internet of Things (IoT) aims to connect everything in our world and assist users in controlling the objects in their immediate vicinity and keeping them informed of their current state. IoT devices sense the environment without human or machine interaction and send the gathered data to the Internet cloud. Tens of millions of devices are connected via the Internet of Things (IoT), and the number of connected devices is rapidly increasing. The chapter aims to highlight the role of IoT devices in detecting Covid-19. It details the different architectures of the system. Various domains, like the role of machines in healthcare, transportation, entertainment, retailing, and education, are detailed. It addresses challenges - awareness, accessibility, human power crisis, affordability, and accountability. Some of the future directions managed including edge architecture, cryptography, blockchain, machine learning, digital twin, unified network integration, context-aware accessibility, edge and fog computing, and sensor and actuator integration are summarized.

Keywords: Coronavirus 2, Covid-19, Detection, IoT, Prevention, SARS-CoV-2.
