The College of Medicine, University of Ibadan (CoMUI) COVID-19 Committee has partnered with CoMUI’s Information Technology Unit (ITU) to produce an Individual Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Tool. This is now live on CoMUI’s server. I am extremely delighted about this innovative partnership.
This tool has two parts and assesses a person’s level of exposure to COVID-19 and their vulnerability to the virus if exposed. The CoMUI COVID-19 Committee developed this as a proxy for testing but we have rolled it out today to see how it compares to the test results.
In keeping with the mandate of this administration to enhance the welfare and safety of the staff of CoMUI, this assessment tool was developed to help to identify those who have been exposed or who are more vulnerable to a deleterious outcome of being infected with COVID-19. In order to ensure confidentiality of those who fill the tool, it is hosted on the College server.
After filling the form, each person will receive a report of his or her score on the email provided as well as on the interface where the form was filled. The results can also be downloaded either in the interface where it is filled or from the email. A code that is specific to each person is also generated. A copy of ONLY the report will be sent to the laboratory (BCVL), which will be used to determine if the person will require only a Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) test or a confirmatory Real-Time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR test).
Like all new things, this is not the finalised tool.

With deep gratitude to the CoMUI COVID-19 Committee, the CoMUI ITU and the entire CoMUI Community.
