Thermal Screening for Fever Detection in COVID-19 Pandemic
After 3 months of Lockdown, now the State and Central Government along with Industries have started talking about ‘’Returning to Normal” and unlocking the Nation towards “Mission Begin Again”. Thermal Camera Technology plays a vital role in the process of Fever Screening and Detection which is guided by the Health Ministry while opening up offices and commercial premises.
Let us understand, How Latest Technology in fever detection will help to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Across all the industries, everyone is looking for the right tools to help, detect, slow and eventually stop SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. After experiencing a huge lockdown, now we’ve all come to recognize that resuming operations in any way will require demonstrating measures to protect the health and wellbeing of people in a variety of situations, including travel and work.
One proposed solution is Thermal Scanners. Unlike most medical imaging approaches, Infrared (IR) thermography doesn’t require irradiation or expensive equipment and presents no health hazard. Infrared radiation emitted from our skin can be detected and used along with information about the ambient environment to estimate core body temperature — which may indicate someone is running a fever, a common early symptom of COVID-19. While thermal scanners can’t detect a virus or a specific infection, they can help by quickly narrowing down a large pool of possibly infected individuals. And today, this represents the only viable non-contact mass screening approach for fever. The accuracy of the infrared system can, however, is affected by human, environmental and equipment variables. Understanding this multitude of variables — including the ways in which the science, technology and applications themselves interact — will help both users and system makers that deliver the best results.
Increase in Demand for Fever Detection Technology
The COVID-19 crisis has made it a priority for businesses and organization to be able to detect anyone who may have fever, in order to safeguard the health of their employees and customers. Those who may pose a health risk to others need to be isolated and prevented from accessing premises, if possible.
Most of the organizations that have started resuming operation are well equipped with the Thermal Screening Equipment. Fever Detection Thermometer, Thermal Camera, AI-based Face Recognition System which are contactless in nature and help maintain No Touch Environment. Wi-Fi Thermal Camera scans up to 30 humans at times which are resulting in well-organized management for Thermal Screening and a great saving of time. Here is the quick overview of all solutions essential for your organization while you start with “Mission Begin Again”. Whilst minimizing any potential for COVID-19 transmission, commerce, education, public services and transport networks all need to get running and operating as efficiently as they can. Deploying technology such as fever screening systems as part of a range of preventative measures will hopefully support that effort.
