    Blockchain technology is being popular day by day and also serving in many applications and areas such as Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Big data, Healthcare and many more because of its security strengths and benefits. It has been proven that blockchain applications are being utilized in healthcare to deliver secure data and to manage the medical data safely. Moreover, blockchain is transforming the traditional medical practices in effective ways such as diagnosing the problems effectively and treating through secure information sharing. There is no doubt to say that in future, blockchain will be performing in personalized, valid and secure healthcare by combining the medical information of patient and providing in a secure and updated setup. In this research paper, securities of healthcare applications and traditional and recent security developments are discussed. Due to Covid-19, it has become challenging for healthcare officials and government to protect and record individuals sensitive data safely. Also, spread of misleading information has been also increased during the pandemic and inability of existing platform for information validation leads to public panic.Implementation of blockchain-based tracking systems is essential for accurate and valid information sharing among people and Government. This paper focus on information security issues raised by Covid-19 pandemic as well as implementation of blockchain-based platform in healthcare to record and protect covid-19 related information and contact tracing.
