We at Microstrategies have asked ourselves the question: Can thermal cameras be used to detect a virus or an infection? The quick answer to this question is no. However thermal imaging cameras can be used to detect Elevated Body Temperature (EBT). Microstrategies’ thermal cameras have a long history of being used in public spaces—such as airports, train terminals, businesses, factories, and entertainment venues including concerts—as an effective tool to measure skin surface temperature and identify individuals with EBT.

Bespoke software development integrated solutions

In light of the global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), which is now officially a pandemic, society is deeply concerned about the spread of infection and is seeking tools to help slow and ultimately stop the spread of the virus. Although no thermal camera can detect or diagnose the coronavirus, Microstrategies’ cameras can be used as an adjunct to other body temperature screening tools for detecting elevated skin temperature in high-traffic public places through quick individual screening.

Fully integrated end-end mobile alerting system

If the temperature of the skin in key areas (especially the corner of the eye and forehead) is above average temperature, then the individual may be selected for additional screening. Identifying individuals with EBT, who would then be further screened with virus-specific diagnostic tests, can help reduce or dramatically slow the spread of viruses and infections.

By using thermal cameras, officials can be more discrete, efficient, and effective in identifying individuals that need further screening with virus-specific tests. A variety of institutions, including transportation agencies, businesses, factories, and first responders are using thermal screening as an EBT detection method and as part of employee health and screening (EH&S).

Factories, manufacturing plants & distribution centres in particular are actively using Microstrategies’ thermal cameras as part of their screening measures for employees. The screening procedures implemented at factories and in other public places are just the first step when it comes to detecting a possible infection; it’s a quick way to screen for anyone who might be unwell, and must always be followed up with further testing before authorities decide to quarantine a person.
