The results indicated that there are significant roles of e-health in strengthening the efforts to control and manage this COVID-19 pandemic through improving safe coordination and communication, affording an alternative for education and training, analyzing the data, and providing safe care. Further studies are recommended to evaluate the role of e-health in the control and management of COVID-19.
