Thermal supports epidemic prevention and control

1 April 2020 News

The year 2020 is bound to be a contentious year with the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) globally. This highly contagious disease has taken many lives, especially in China, South Korea, Japan and some countries in Europe and Middle East.

Dahua Technology has been an early participant in epidemic prevention and control in Asia, joining the global efforts in combating the virus to minimise the impact on humankind. Since sending its first batch of thermal cameras to the hardest-hit area of Wuhan on 24 January 2020, Dahua thermal solutions have been deployed in thousands of sites in China, including transportation hubs, commercial complexes, banks and other places and some are on the way to other countries in Asia.

Hong Kong, a financial capital in Asia, also suffers from the COVID-19 epidemic. Dahua thermal solutions have been applied in some local business complexes, banks, company parks and other places. To enable a safe work environment, quite a few major corporations have been using Dahua thermal solutions in their headquarters and subsidiaries to improve their workplace safety. Dahua thermals measure the body temperature of their employees, handling the flow of thousands of staff every day.

To measure the temperature of 5000 people will take about 4.2 hours using a forehead thermometer, as it takes at least 3 seconds to measure a person. However, it takes only 30 minutes if you use a thermal solution, which measures 3 people per second. It also features a high accuracy of ±0.3oC.

Dahua Thermal Solution has been on the front line since the very beginning, helping with the epidemic prevention and control in airports, railway stations, hospitals, schools and other sites all over Asia.
