Stop the spread of Covid-19

Our strategy for companies is to fully focus on stopping the spread of the virus throughout and within your company. It is important to know that 50% of infected corona carriers generally do not show any symptoms, but at the same time they can infect their colleagues. You will want to also have grip on these carriers in order to prevent the spread. That is the focus of the MediCorps strategy. This strategy is both simple and effective.

EMPLOYEES WITH SYMPTOMS report by telephone to MediCorps. This is possible 24/7. Within 2 hours, a BIG-registered nurse arrives and 10 minutes later there is a result: stay home and quarantine or simply go to the office.

EMPLOYEES WITHOUT SYMPTOMS are tested periodically at your location before starting to work. You decide the frequency (daily/weekly) and we test all your employees who are present and visitors before they enter the office using a rapid test. Within 10 minutes, you have the result. Infected employees are sent home immediately and go into isolation as well as their family members.

IN CASE OF AN OUBREAK we are with you within 2 hours and immediately test all the contacts of the patient within your company. Therefore, you have an immediate insight into the spread of the coronavirus within your company and together we can then implement the measures for preventing further spread.

The ideal company testing strategy is:

Test employees with corona-type symptoms at home and within 2 hours you get an immediate result.

medecorps check icoon

Test employees without symptoms on location before they can start working.

Test employees without symptoms with a well-defined test protocol

Repeat these preventive tests a number of times per week at defined times. The cost of this test strategy may seem high, but it is far less than the economic cost of production failure or a company lockdown. A potential virus outbreak can be contained by frequent (daily) testing.

WHO
DO I TEST?

If the question is who should get tested, the answer should be self-evident. This obviously concerns mainly employees with corona-type symptoms who are at home. The significance of speed in connection with absence due to waiting time should be clear. But you can also consider testing colleagues who were in contact (<1.5 metre) with infected employees, family members or friends. In addition, you can also test employees who received a notification from the Corona Melder App of the national government.

Employees who are asymptomatic are difficult to discover in practice. This poses a risk for the company and this risk should not be underestimated. There are dozens of examples of companies that are overwhelmed with infection outbreaks and even company shutdowns.

HOW
DO I TEST?

With the emergence of the reliable corona rapid tests (result within 10 minutes) the solution is within reach.

Using the rapid tests, you can easily and efficiently detect the employees who do not have any symptoms. However, there is a minor catch. If the test result is negative, it could create a sort of false sense of security inside the company, leading to a disregard for the current corona conduct rules (1.5 metre, hand washing, etc.).

You might be negative today, but tomorrow positive and consequently infecting others.

HOW OFTEN
DO I TEST?

To avoid this false sense of security and to guarantee the continuity of the company, frequent rapid testing of employees deserves priority.

Suppose you test every employee before he/she enters the factory or office, then you can already catch a large share of the infected employees before they enter the premises. If you fail to detect an employee because he/she has a too low virus load, for example, then you can still detect this employee on the next day or even on the following day.
