Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is one of the most dangerous respiratory illness through the last one hundred years. Its dangerous is returned to its ability to spread quickly between people. This paper proposes a smart real solution to help Egyptian government to track and control the spread of COVID-19. In this paper, we suggest an integrated system that can ingest big data from different sources using Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) IR sensors and display results in an interactive map, or dashboard, of Egypt. The proposed system consists of three subsystems, which are: Embedded Microcontroller (EM), Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligent (AI) subsystems. The EM subsystem includes accurate temperature measuring device using IR sensors and other detection components. The EM subsystem can be used in the entrance of places like universities, schools, and subways to screen and check temperature of people from a distance within seconds and get data about suspected cases. Then, the IoT subsystem will transmit the collected data from individuals such as temperature, ID, age, gender, location, phone number. etc., to the specific places and organizations. Finally, a software based on AI analysis will be applied to execute statistics and forecast how and to what extent the virus will spread. Due to the important role of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and interactive maps, or dashboards, in tracking COVID-19, this paper introduces an advanced dashboard of Egypt. This dashboard has been introduced to locate and tally confirmed infections, fatalities, recoveries and present the statistical results of AI model.
