TWO-THIRDS of employees in the North West fear they will catch Coronavirus at their place of work, research reveals.

A new survey by JD Cooling Group, a supplier of environmental control systems, has found 67 per cent of workers in the North West are worried about contracting Coronavirus when they return to their place of work after UK restrictions ease.

Despite the extensive vaccine roll out, many people across the region and the rest of the UK remain cautious about the prospect of a return to the office.

The survey carried out in April using a sample of 1,000 UK employees found 47 per cent of respondents were most concerned about airbourne transmission, with 62 per cent saying they would like a ventilation system installed to improve air quality, circulation and flow.

Mike Gould, HVAC manager at JD Cooling Group said: “Good ventilation can rid a workplace of contaminated and stale air. As people are still clearly concerned about catching the virus at work, it’s important that employers do what they can in order to protect, reassure and ultimately keep their workforce safe.”
