Health experts are urging people to take a liver test before starting a new job to help determine whether they are at risk of getting sick from an infection caused by the coronavirus.
The advice comes after the World Health Organisation said a study showed that more than half of people with liver disease in Britain are currently being infected with the coronas virus.
Health experts also said it was important to avoid any unnecessary contact with the sick or ill.
The WHO said the coronascens virus had been spreading through the UK since December, when it was first detected in the Midlands.
“Liver function tests are not a replacement for blood tests but they are a reliable way of detecting signs of liver damage, such as low blood pressure, low cholesterol or high triglycerides,” said Dr. Jonathan Brown, an infectious disease expert at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
“The more you do to improve your health, the more likely you are to get better results.”
It is important that people know their risk and their risk is likely to increase as they age, and so the advice should be taken seriously,” Dr. Brown added. “
We need to know if we are getting enough liver tests so that people who need help getting better can be screened.”

A recent study found that the virus is circulating in the UK, but there is still a long way to go.
Researchers surveyed 1,600 people in the United Kingdom and found that just under two-thirds of them were still experiencing symptoms of coronaviruses symptoms by the time they reached their late 50s or early 60s.
One-third of the people had not received a liver transplant, and nearly one-third had not even been tested.
The researchers said the findings could mean that people infected with coronaviral strains are more likely to be in need of liver transplants and to have more symptoms.
There are some important differences between UK and other countries, and the findings should be viewed in this context, so we need to be aware that it’s important to check the liver status of people and their underlying conditions to be sure they are not in need for transplant,” Dr Brown said.
