COVID-19 Worksite Test Evaluation Form

What is Novel Corona virus (COVID-19) Pandemic?

COVID-19 Pandemic is a new type of virus which has caused severe illness in humans in entire countries of the world.  In humans, certain corona viruses (COVID-19) are proved to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. First detected in a group of people with pneumonia symptoms in Wuhan city, Hubei province of China.

Symptoms of Novel Corona virus (COVID-19)?

Here we shall discuss the most familiar symptoms of Novel Corona virus (COVID-19):
  1. A fever is a high temperature and is generally classed as anything over 37.8°C or more than 38°C in adults and children. But the temperature can fluctuate (increase or decrease) 0.6°C or 1°F above or below this through the entire day, depending on how active affected patients are and what time of the day it is.
  2. Severe Tiredness
  3. Dry cough
  4. Some of the positive patients may have an abundance of minor aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms of COVID-19 are normally mild and begin gradually. 

Point to Remember

Everyone with a cold or upper respiratory symptom not required to get tested for Novel Corona virus (COVID-19). Any person with possible symptoms and travelling history can do the COVID-19 test. Moreover, more than 80% of patients recover from the disease without the requirement of special treatment.

The Reasons for COVID-19 Pandemic Spread?

Novel Corona virus COVID-19 spread from man to man through contaminated droplets from a person who is affected by the illness (through coughing or sneezing) or contaminated hands.
Through touching an infected contaminated surface.
Persons could be effected by COVID-19 virus if they breathe in droplets from a patient with COVID-19 who coughs out or emit droplets. This is why it is mandatory to stay more than 3-5 feet away from a man who is sick and effected with Corona virus (COVID-19).

Treatment for COVID-19?

Until now, there is no treatment and vaccination for the Novel Corona virus COVID-19, and it only depends on increasing and maintaining proper immunity level of patients, treating the symptoms and easing complexity, as there is no particular treatment for the COVID-19 virus to date.

​How to Prevent the Disease?

  1. Washing the hands with soap and water more than 30 -40 seconds.
  2. By using alcohol-based hand sanitizers that have the capability to kills viruses that may be on the hands.
  3. By social distancing to keep at least 3-5 feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing or other symptoms of COVID-19.
  4. Covering mouth and nose with the bent elbow or tissue papers when someone coughs or sneezes. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately in the particular waste bins.
  5. Touching of eyes, nose or mouth without washing hands should be avoided.
  6. Shaking hands with others should be avoided and just wave. 
  7. Avoid contact with livestock (alive or dead).
  8. Take more than 10 hours’ rest and take a large number of fluids particularly hot drinks (ginger, mint leaves, lemon, etc.).

COVID-19 Test Evaluation 

For the prevention and control of the COVID-19, the Human resources departments, project managers, project engineers and other accountable personals need to take appropriate initiatives and precautions by conducting COVID-19 Testing at the offices, worksites, projects and maintaining a record for the justification and fulfilling the regulatory and legal requirements of the state and other local and international regulatory bodies.
