Coronavirus Pandemic: What is Infrared Thermometer and Why is It Needed?
The infrared thermometers are used to detect the body temperature in case of fever, one of the symptoms of corona virus or Covid 19
These thermometers check the human temperature by sensing the infrared energy radiated by the body.
The sudden surge in numbers of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases has caused nations across the globe to take steps to stop the spread. Ever since the outbreak of the deadly disease, there has been a need to routinely check temperatures. The temperature in such cases is not checked using a mercury thermometer. To do this, offices, airports, malls and hotels are using forehead thermometers, also known as an infrared thermometer.

$Despite this, several cities and countries are heavily dependent on infrared thermometers and are experiencing a spurt in demand. They are finding it difficult to procure these instruments.
