This is the global concern of the people that can COVID-19 virus infection be detected from the thermal scanner? Many countries are using this device to detect the people infected with Coronavirus, so the citizens are showing concerns whether this is the effective way or not to screen the Coronavirus infected person?
Now regarding the above matter, WHO has mentioned that the device is effective in detecting a person having a fever (who have higher than normal body temperature) because of Coronavirus infection. But the device cannot detect a person infected with Coronavirus but not yet have fever. COVID-19 spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets during coughing or sneezing. The time range between the people get exposure and become sick is from 2 to 10 days, with median incubation period of 5 to 6 days.
So regardless of believing in rumors and buzzes spread over the internet platforms, people shall adopt precautionary and safety measures against the Coronavirus in their daily lifestyle.
Please do the following basis precautionary measures to keep yourself and your family and circle safe from Corona Virus:
# Frequently wash hands with hand wash or soap for at least 20 seconds.
# Use sanitizer (alcohol-based) in the unavailability of water and hand wash.
# Do not touch your facial area i.e eyes, nose and mouth to avoid infection.
The best precaution to alert yourself: Always think your hands have a dirt.

If you think your hand has a dirt then definitely you won’t touch your face or any part of the body as well as anything unnecessarily with that hand. So, keep in mind that your hand is always dirty. If you go outside, and if you touch something then just think you have touched the dirt, then definitely you won’t use that hand to touch anywhere on your body as far as possible and you will rush to wash your hand as soon as possible.
