The Ajman Police assisted an ill Asian worker who called out for help via Twitter urging for medical test as he feared to have contracted coronavirus. In the video, he also claimed that his  company failed to assist him and his fellow workers.

Major Mohamed bin Yafor Al Ghafli, deputy director of Criminal Investigation Department in Ajman Police, said that when they saw the tweet, CID officers swung into action and reached the worker at his accommodation in Al jarf industrial area 2.

The worker was found reeling under high fever, cough, and dyspnea.
The place was secured by the cops. The police asked the Ajman Medical Zone to rush a medical crew and ambulance to the accommodation. The medical staff carried out examinations and laboratory tests, which showed that the man was not suffering from coronavirus, and was down with influenza and cold.
"We have also communicated with the company representative and notified him to follow up on the workers' health condition and provide them the required medical care in light of the current crisis," Al Ghafli said.
He urged the company owners to keep a regular check on the health of workers, and ensure their commitment to the precautionary measures that prevent the spread of the virus.
