Proximity Alert Solution for COVID-19

13 May, 2020


World Health Organization states that when someone who has COVID-19 coughs or exhales they release droplets of infected fluid. Most of these droplets fall on nearby surfaces and objects, such as desks, tables or telephones. People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects, and then touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. If they are standing within 1 meter of a person with COVID-19 they can catch it by breathing in droplets coughed out or exhaled by them. In other words, COVID-19 spreads in a similar way to flu. Most persons infected with COVID-19 experience mild symptoms and recover. However, some experience more serious illness and may require hospital care.

Why do employers need to think about COVID-19?

It has to be taken seriously by every employer and the potential risk form COVID-19:

  • There is a risk that people which are coming back to work might unwittingly bring the COVID-19 virus to their work place. Others might be unknowingly exposed to COVID-19.
  • Although COVID-19 is a mild disease for most people, it can make some very ill. Around 1 in every 5 people who catch COVID-19 needs hospital treatment.
  • Employees who are coming back to work, they need to be protected, since they can bring the COVID-19 back home to their families


Since whole world is on a lockdown and some of the countries are trying to re-open the economy by opening some of the companies, but still – we are facing the challenges:

  • How to ensure that people are keeping the distance between each other.
  • Person is healthy and can work without any interferences with the virus.
  • Probably one of the most important challenge is how to track all the interactions between the infected person and healthy person.
