From Ebola to Coronavirus

Increased body surface temperature measurement with the thermal imager testo 890


Why detection of increased body temperature?

In times of increasing mobility, infections don’t stop at national borders either. Whether ebola, SARS or coronavirus: wherever many people come together, there’s an increased risk f infection. That’s why it’s in the interest of public health to identify risk persons in large groups of people early. The operators of heavily frequented facilities such as airports, shopping malls or sports stadiums carry a special responsibility for disease prevention.

Why measure increased body temperature with thermography?

An important indicator for an infection is increased body temperature (compared to other people in the immediate surroundings), generally known as fever.
Thermography is ideally suited to scanning not just individuals, but also large flows of people. To do this, the temperature at the inner corner of the eye is measured, and an alarm triggered if it deviates. This allows persons with increased body temperature to be identified quickly and reliably, and to be isolated for more exact testing.
