We have become well used to having out temperature checked by means of an infrared thermometer.
Airports are deciding whether people can enter workplaces, or even fly accross the globe, on the basis of the readings of these thermometers.
Of course most of these are based on a standard chinese model and arrive with no calibration, and with most cases insufficient documentation to allow vertified calibration.
We did a few tests and found errors of over 1.5C; which is clearly useless for checking fever.
A cycnical co-worker noted that the Chinese now control who works and who doesn't, who flies and who gets quarantined.....and you can be sure that these devices have built in face recognition connected by 5G......:D
