AbstractFuzzy sets (FSs) are an important tool to model uncertainty and vagueness. Entropy is being used to measure the fuzziness within a fuzzy set (FS). These entropies are used to find multicriteria decision-making. For measuring uncertainty with TOPSIS techniques an axiomatic definition of entropy measure for fuzzy sets is also given in this paper. The proposed entropy is provided to satisfy all the axioms. Several numerical examples are presented to compare the proposed entropy measure with existing entropies. The corresponding results show that the newly proposed entropy can be computed easily and give reliable results. Finally, the decision-making algorithm TOPSIS (Techniques of ordered preference similarity to ideal solution) is utilized to solve multicriteria decision-making problems (MCDM) related to daily life. In the current situation, COVID-19 has no proper medical treatment. We use TOPSIS technique to suggest an effective medicine for this pandemic. Numerical results and practical examples show the effectiveness and practical applicability of the proposed entropy.
