Since December 2019, COVID-19 and all of its variants continue to ravage the planet with consequent negative impact that has completely changed our lives within a short period of time after the outbreak of the Virus. On March 11, 2020, COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. Since then, a group of new COVID-19 variants has emerged posing a greater danger to humanity. By the start of August 2021, the reported COVID-19 related death toll across the globe has rocketed to 4,233,139. To deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, countries across the world have rushed to develop various techniques in order to embrace an array of solutions to the problem. Covid-19 negatively affected countries in several sectors including industry, business, health, and education to name a few. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are among the top countries which use cutting-edge technologies in several sectors. This significantly helped these countries to overcome the spread of this virus. In this paper, we present an overview of the technologies, techniques, solutions, and strategies deployed by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in order to safeguard their citizens and speedy return of life to normalcy
