Due to the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which has now infected more than one lakh people and killed 4000+ individuals across the globe, every company is focusing on it's prevention.
As HR's, CEO's, Admins, and Founders are rushing to keep their employees protected from Coronavirus, State and Federal govt. has suspended Biometric Attendance System until further notice. This has been followed by many small and large corporations, causing the suspension of Biometric Attendance system as a key measure to stop the spread of infection.
According to Diksha Deo, Founder, CEO of INCUBSENCE "Spread of infection from biometric attendance has always been a concern and we have always been vocal about it. Many a times your colleagues will sneeze and then touch attendance or you would find oil on the Biometric Finger Scanner. Now, Coronavirus has caused panic among employees and employers forcing most corporates to suspend biometric attendance."
I believe biometric attendance should never have been employed as a technology to mark attendance, Diksha Deo further ads. The solution lies in contact less attendance, IncubXS is non-touch, tap Phone and mark attendance system.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most effective way to protect yourself against coronavirus is by frequently cleaning of your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or washing them with soap and water.
People should eat only well-cooked food, avoid spitting in public, and avoid close contact, the WHO said, adding that it is important for people to seek medical care at the earliest if they become sick.
