Hyderabad: In a bid to check everyone’s body temperature quickly, Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) here has installed a mass fever screening system that can automatically scan temperatures of people passing.
UNICEF has funded the system in collaboration with the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and Asian Development Bank.
It is mounted on the ceiling and can scan and detect people with increased body temperatures without any human intervention. It has Dual-Displays (Day camera + Infra-red). The new system is expected to increase the efficiency multi-fold and not disturb passenger movement.
As precautionary measures against COVID-19, the authorities are sanitizing and fumigating every nook and corner of the airport building including aerobridges, washrooms, chairs, counters, trolleys, railings, doors, lifts, escalators, baggage belts etc.
