The discovery of the first cases of Covid-19 in Nigeria resulted in a total lockdown in the country and counteractive measures began such as social distancing, contact tracing. Travel bans and curfews were placed in all locations in the country.
With the daily increasing figure in the number of infected individuals in the nation, there is a necessity to put in place more measures to contain the spread. Comparing the country's population, the number of discovered cases and the number of tests done, there is an urgent need to increase our Covid-19 testing capacity.
The lockdown has been eased partially and fully in some parts of the country, markets and banking halls have re-opened with some regulations and crowd limit. Digital infrared thermometers are being used before entry into public places.
The digital infrared thermometer is basically used to determine your body temperature from a distance. One of the symptoms of Covid 19 is fever, which could lead to an increase in the body temperature hence the use of the digital infrared thermometer scanner.
However, not all persons infected with the virus would show symptoms immediately or even at all but with the unavailability of rapid testing kits, the temperature check is still of great importance if other counteractive measures like social distancing, the use face masks and hand sanitizers are strictly followed.
Stay safe. Keep yourself and everyone else protected. Get your Digital Infrared Thermometer today
