How Infrared Thermometers can Combat the Spread of viruses like novel Coronavirus?

Coronavirus death toll has risen in China. The country has reported thousands of deaths because of the coronavirus outbreak and health authorities are diagnosing more and more cases every day. Not only in China but the of coronavirus cases has risen across the world. About 25-27 countries have confirmed cases in their nations and few of them have been also recorded few deaths. Coronavirus could create havoc if we fail in developing effective tools and innovations as soon as possible. So, now the concern is growing over taking actions for combating its potential spread as it could go in any direction in the future.  On the other hand, the World Health Organization (WHO), a specified agency which works in the area of world public health has also declared it a public health emergency and has taken several decisions to accelerate research & development for the prevention of coronavirus.

What Is Coronavirus?

Coronavirus (CoV) firstly identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019. According to WHO, CoV is a large family of viruses that has not been found in humans earlier. This is zoonotic disease and transmitted easily between animals and humans. CoV causes several illnesses ranging from common cold to severe diseases which ca be life threatening.

Common Signs

  • Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Breathing Difficulties
  • Fever
  • Pneumonia
  • Kidney Failure & Others


Some CoV affected people recover easily but some others situation may get serious with severe illness, heavy cough and pneumonia etc. As it can cause severe illness, it is very important to monitor the situation of everybody who has chances of this infection. It spreads from animal to human and human to human. Only prevention is its cure as there is no effective treatment available so far.



To prevent CoV infection everyone should practice good hygiene including;

  1. Wash your hands frequently with water and soap.

  8. If you have symptoms of infection, please use facemask in order to protect others from the risk of getting infected.

Temperature Measurement Should Reduce the Chances of Spreading of CoV Virus

According to WHO, regular temperature screening can reduce the chances of spreading of CoV.  As a result, the thermometers have become an important part of effective CoV defense mechanism.  Inferred thermometers are more powerful because of their sensing technology which allows them to determine temperature from a distance through radiation. These radiations measure the heat emitting from human body quickly and accurately. These handy devices determine the heat radiating from human body without touching human body and pretty safe to use during this deadly outbreak. They are accurate, quick and reliable. They come in gun form and very easy to use with zero hassle.  The measuring procedure can be done easily on sleeping children too to reduce the chances of spreading of coronavirus.

We cannot get rid of this disease in a single day, but we can prevent it by implementing technically correct innovations for its prevention.  As the use of the infrared thermometer has become crucial to control this havoc, you can also buy an infrared thermometer for taking care of your family.  Checkout the range of infrared thermometers from Dr Trust Here.
