Do you want to help your Country fight Coronavirus through contact tracing? Many Countries are hiring people to be Contact tracers for COVID-19

Contact Tracing

According to official reports, on April 30, 2020, South Korea reported no domestic case related to COVID-19. This is a major milestone for South Korea because the country was reporting a total of 1,000 cases every day. The country’s trajectory is an important point that proves the effectiveness of Contact tracers. Contact tracing is proving to cure Coronavirus by finding out all infected people.

Because of this many countries are busy recruiting people for contact tracing. Cities like New York are experiencing a downsize in the number of Coronavirus patients. However, the state is hurrying to recruit massive amounts of contact tracers which according to experts are a necessity to face COVID-19.

What is Contact Tracing?

Contact tracing is not a new concept. It is a method used for centuries in order to detect the spread of any infectious disease. In the 1800s, contact tracing helped eradicate cholera from London. This was due to the identification of the source of the disease. The National Association of County and City Health Officials released a document to help understand how to contact tracers can help kill Coronavirus.

However, going forward will require improved testing and tracing procedures. The main part of the job is to talk to people on the phone, question them, and also answer a majority of those questions.

Following are the steps necessary to become a contact tracer:

  1. You need to identify a person who might have Coronavirus.
  2. Use a structured conversation to identify the person’s epidemiologically relevant contacts. This would be people they’ve had close contact with — like coworkers, people they live with, and people who have been less than six feet from for more than a few minutes.
  3. Reach and communicate with each of those contacts to provide information, resources (including testing), and guidance about preventing transmission.
  4. Keep in touch with each contact to monitor symptoms until they receive a negative test result or the quarantine time frame passes.
  5. Work with contacts to identify their own relevant contacts, tracing the second generation of contacts.
Contact tracing has its own set of benefits. However, all frontline workers will need to stay healthy in order to carry out this work. Let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
