    What is COVID-19?

    COVID-19 is an infectious and sometimes fatal disease caused by the coronavirus strain SARS-CoV2. Because it is new to humans, our bodies have a difficult time dealing with it and thus it has turned into a global pandemic.

    The disease was first detected in Wuhan, China, back in December 2019.

    Most common ways to contract COVID-19

    It can be transmitted through saliva droplets from an infected person, such as when they talk or cough. That’s why we need to keep the physical distance of at least 3 feet (1 meter).

    It can be transmitted if you touch a surface that has the virus on it and then touch your nose, mouth or eyes. That is why it is important to not touch your face unless you have washed your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water before and to disinfect surfaces regularly.

    Safety measures to get back to work

    With restaurants closed, revenue falling 60% in the fashion industry, and up to 85% fewer sales in luxury products, some governments are already comparing the COVID recession to World War 2.
    The good news is, China has restarted its economy already, after 59 days of strict lockdown. This is a quarantine model the rest of the world, guided by the WHO (World Health Organization), is aiming to follow.
    As the world lockdown eases, new rules are being applied to keep everyone safe. It will be essential to control access to enclosed spaces and to prevent the spread as people go back to work.

    Contactless solutions are gaining popularity in many industries so both employees and visitors can avoid unnecessary contact with surfaces.

    For starters, social distancing is (and will be) a must from now on, along with a minimum health self-assessment before entering into places with crowds.
    Some businesses are utilizing Infrared thermometers (200 USD, give or take) to measure visitors’ temperatures at the entrance of their facilities. Anyone with a high temperature is flagged and refused entry.
    QR codes are another alternative that is accessible to everyone with a smartphone. Visitors will access a contactless self-declaration form with a few questions about their health status, like the one we are offering for free here. These forms ask people a few questions about symptoms and potential contact with positive COVID cases.

    Companies are already changing their value proposition.

    QR code forms are helping stop the spread of COVID during and post quarantine. The “COVID QR code,” or “Opt-in health form” aims to provide an additional layer of safety before visitors/employees access the venue.

    While companies are doing what they can to help stem the spread of COVID-19 and healthcare authorities look for a vaccine, general uncertainty has emerged with events suspended or happening without the usual crowds of people and numerous jobs lost as the world’s economies slow down.

    This is a challenging time in particular for people that can’t perform their work remotely, like many healthcare professionals, some restaurant staff, and physical retailers in general.
    During this time of trying to go back to normal, companies and institutions have to pay special attention to directives from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) to follow the best safety practices possible.

    Contactless health check-ups at entries will ensure customers, employees, and essential providers are safe inside your facility, helping to flatten the curve and reduce the spread.

    QR codes for healthcare establishments

    For healthcare facilities, a contactless health self-declaration form placed at the reception area could be a time-saver, preventing infected visitors from spreading the virus when entering the healthcare venue. It is the first control layer. The system is designed so that, once the QR code is scanned, and the form is completed, the system will notify the visitor automatically if they’re okay to enter. If the contactless form detects something alarming in their answers, it will prompt them to wait outside for instructions from one of your health professionals.

    "Contact tracing is an essential step, and this is why similar initiatives are being adopted in places around the world."

    More and more countries are starting to implement QR codes in their fight against the coronavirus.

    The use of QR codes as a contactless way of interacting with the population to fight coronavirus is gaining traction across industries. From hospitals and schools to public transport, retailers and even government offices, QR codes and contactless forms are proving their effectiveness while being cost-effective.

    "Technology now plays a critical role in containing the pandemic."

    QR codes as a close contact detector

    China has requested health controls in all public places. At these checkpoints, the visitors must show a colored QR code to be granted access to the establishments, complete with a temperature check.
    This health control system is hosted within the popular Chinese apps, Alipay and WeChat.

    These two apps are used by 99.9% of Chinese people. To compare with western countries, that is like if you put Facebook, WhatsApp, and Google users together. The Chinese government asked all its citizens to fill a form within the apps, designating the person one of 3 colored QR codes.

    China’s QR codes; different colors and meanings



    The person can circulate freely in public places.



    For people recently arrived from other countries or who were recently ill, or who were in contact with people that could be ill. They are advised to stay at home for at least 7 days.



    People currently affected by the virus. Under medical observation or suspected cases. They must quarantine for at least 14 days either at home or in a government facility.
    These are some of the information requested by the Chinese Government to its citizens via the questionnaire to put the health QR code color in action:

    • Full name,
    • ID/passport
    • Phone number
    • Travel history
    • Contact with confirmed COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days
    • Check for symptoms they could be experiencing
    (fatigue, fever, dry cough, runny nose, stuffy nose, diarrhea, or sore throat).
    The system will automatically verify the information, assigning one of the 3 colored QR codes.

    If a new Coronavirus case is detected, the healthcare system can quickly track that person’s movements in public places, identifying people that might have been in contact with the individual.

    Hospitals have benefited the most with the color-based contactless QR code. This health tracking system is saving a lot of time for health professionals that, before the implementation of the check-in QR code, had to go through an extensive interview with visitors before letting them access facilities. At the same time, the self-declaration questionnaire allows an early screening, eliminating waiting times and long queues to access the hospital.

    Although some patients lied when answering some of the questions to access medical facilities, it has proven useful as a first security layer. The visitor must digitally sign the self-declaration questionnaire, legally binding them. This, complemented with an infrared thermometer, makes the whole process faster and safer for everyone.

    Reducing contact with physical services like touch screens and physical desks is important for preventing the coronavirus from spreading further.
    Public venues can reduce the manipulation of objects by digitizing some of them, like removing physical menus from restaurants, and uploading them to a QR code. That way, customers won’t need to touch the menu.

    QR codes are at the front line of fighting the coronavirus.
    The average scanning distance to read a QR code is 11.8 inches (30 cm) – it can be more if the QR code is big enough. On the other hand, devices with NFC (near field communication) enabled require a range of around 2 inches (5 centimeters). QR codes can be scanned from a safer distance than using NFC and are more cost-effective.
