A Revolutionary New Approach to Pandemic Management
OK2Roam’s proactive, risk-based approach to managing a pandemic is endorsed by leading epidemiologists. It is far superior to traditional techniques because it takes advantage of the latest technology to gain control of disease spread; whereas traditional methods, based on human contact tracing, are highly labour intensive and are soon overwhelmed. In addition to being more sophisticated, up-to-date and cost-effective, OK2Roam allows destinations, cruise ships, resorts and other leisure and hospitality businesses, to operate responsibly at capacity, just as they did before COVID-19. By comparison, traditional methods require travel restrictions and closure of many activities. The table below highlights the principal differences between OK2Roam and traditional pandemic management.
|Traditional Pandemic Management
|Enable activity by evaluating the risks
|Restrict activity for fear of the risks
|Gain control of an outbreak
|Become rapidly overwhelmed
|Capitalise on the latest technology
|Rely on traditional labour-intensive methods
|Trace immediately, comprehensively and efficiently
|Trace slowly, incompletely and expensively
|Anticipate/prevent disease spread based on behaviour
|Track disease spread based on exposure
|Break contact chains to impede outbreaks, keeps R<1
|Trace contact chains to chase outbreaks
|Use survey and contact tracing data to analyse the pandemic, risk-score individuals and cut spreading
|Use survey data to follow the pandemic and evaluate spreading
|Re-test potential spreaders often and others less often, which is cost-effective and reduces risk
|Test everyone often, which is expensive, or less often and rely on damaging regulation
|Facilitate bubbles, travel corridors and economic activity
|Rely on travel restrictions
The only system that joins up all the necessary data to create low-risk bubbles and travel corridors
Restrictions to combat COVID-19 have brought the cruise, hospitality, travel and leisure industry to its knees. International air traffic is less than a fifth of normal, as measures like quarantine, mask-wearing and uncertainty deter people from booking. Meanwhile, social distancing measures make it extremely difficult for companies to operate profitably, because doing so relies on them having high load factors or high occupancy levels.
The latest initiatives to bring back travel rely on testing to screen out people who may be infected. However, even the very best tests can’t detect the COVID-19 virus at a very low level or if it’s on one’s clothing or possessions. Therefore, when people start travelling again as they used to, a few outbreaks of the disease are inevitable. As vaccines will not be universally available for many months, if not years, a further level of protection is required to manage things efficiently and responsibly, …. and that is what OK2Roam provides.
It uses artificial intelligence to analyse real-time data from state-of-the-art, digital contact tracing, symptom checking, COVID-19 tests and vaccine certificates; and it calculates individual risk scores. By proactively re-testing those with the highest risk scores, it enables the riskiness of the whole population to be reduced down to the point at which social distancing is not required. It is far more sophisticated, effective and economic than any conventional disease management techniques.
