Viruses are here to stay, its management is inevitable, the important decision is do we do something now about it, or later when it’s too late?
Preparing for the 2nd wave
New coronavirus clusters are surfacing around the globe as countries struggle to balance reopening economies and preventing a second wave of infections, while WHO health official warns the coronavirus may never go away.
Why wasn’t anyone ready for the virus?
1918 was the last virus pandemic and because it was 102 years ago, it’s not a part of an organization’s health and safety policy. The coronavirus is a resilient, resistant germ, and because of its fast mutating behavior, developing a vaccine anytime in the immediate future is a difficult challenge.
How can virus management prevent my business from a shutdown?
During April 2020, after the discovery of employees at Tyson Foods were infected with the coronavirus, the largest meat processing plant in the United States shut down two dozen of its plants.
Because environmental testing is proactive and it does not require testing people, but a few surfaces, its early detection could have mitigated the spread of Covid-19, reducing the negative impact to operations, spare its reputation, and save the company tens of millions of dollars.
Isn’t testing people for coronavirus more effective than environmental testing?
A person testing negative today can become infected tomorrow; testing hundreds of millions of people is cost prohibited, and resources are limited. Environmental testing is a bottom up approach; “if we locate the pollen, we find the bees.”
Identifying the route of virus transmission is impossible, if limitation is person-to-person analysis. An infected person with no knowledge of whom they contracted the virus from, likely picked up the virus from a contaminated surface.
Virus Optics is the only comprehensive management system that offers real-time coronavirus environmental testing, monitoring, disinfection, and contact tracing assistance. Routine testing’s early detection provides the necessary data to eliminate a threat. Contact tracing helps to mitigate the contagion - all in a confidential, HIPPA compliant, managed solution.
How often should we test a surface for coronavirus?
“Hot Spots” require more routine testing than “Warm” or “Gold Spot”, and high-traffic areas more so than low frequent areas. It requires an analysis to determine testing interval.
What are the benefits of virus management?
Virus management eliminates the hardship experience of a complete closure, preserves trust, confidence in the organizations’s ability to manage a health, safety crisis, it reduces labor & health care costs, reducing potential negative repercussions.
