Quick, Low-Cost Way to Better Safety: COVID-19 Loss of Smell Screening Cards
Wondering how to enhance COVID-19 screening without spending a fortune?
Use COVID-19 Loss of Smell Screening Cards! These scratch and sniff cards are an inexpensive, quick and easy method for smell tests.
Anosmia or losing sense of smell is one of the earliest signs of COVID-19. Studies suggest that patients are more likely to have sudden loss of smell than show other well-known symptoms like fever, cough and other respiratory problems. Conducting a smell test as an additional screening method will protect your students, customers and/or employees, improving COVID-19 screenings.
This is especially important for people who are returning to their jobs and schools. It will provide the public with more comfort in knowing that establishments are taking extra steps to keep the environment safer.
Here’s why COVID-19 smell test is important for improving your current screening procedure and how scratch and sniff cards are the way to implement it.
How Smell Test Enhances COVID-19 Screenings
Anosmia can be a symptom for someone infected even without a fever. According to a study conducted by UC San Diego Health, a person with sudden loss of smell is more likely to have been infected by COVID-19 than other infections.
The COVID-19 smell test can be added to regular screenings to improve the detection of both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. This will help businesses and all public establishments prepare a more receptive method for screening asymptomatic COVID-19 patients.
Many People Can Get Through Temperature Check
Temperature check is the most-used screening method for people going in and out of an establishment. This method is practiced in offices and different public areas such as libraries, restaurants and airports.
However, there are some flaws when using temperature alone to determine if someone may or may not have been infected by the virus.
According to Dr. Leo, medical officer of MemorialCare in Fountain Valley, California, non-contact forehead infrared thermometers which are often used to check large numbers of people have poor accuracy on detecting the virus. Meanwhile, the infrared thermal cameras used for mass screening show variable accuracy.
Another problem is that temperature check can’t detect people who are asymptomatic, pre-symptomatic, or experiencing symptoms other than a fever. So relying on temperature checks alone may identify less infected people.
