White Paper: Elevated Body Temperature (EBT) Scanning in the Time of COVID-19 by Howard Zion
The world is forever changed. Every country, every town, every person. And it does not matter whether you believe COVID-19 is real. The end result is the new reality that we must all face. This new reality requires us to take greater precautions than we did prior to COVID-19. If we are going to get the world economy back into motion before individual country economies collapse, we will have no choice but to put safeguards into place. It’s not just the non-believers who throw caution to the wind that are driving it, though that in itself is at the top of the list during a pandemic. But even for those taking precautions, there is still unintentional transfer occurring which provides a route for the virus to spread.
100% isolation for a period of 14 days or more is one way to stop this infectious disease. But unless you can control all 7.6 billion humans and countless more animals on the planet to be compliant with a world-wide quarantine (Venetian: quarantena meaning ‘forty days’ related to the Black Death plague in the 14th century), that is simply not a realistic solution. We can’t stop taking care of the sick or the elderly. We can’t stop taking care of our babies, children or pets. We have to go on living, but we must do it in a way that significantly minimizes transmission of infectious diseases.
In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) with a focus on international public health have developed guidelines we can all easily adopt as responsible human beings. Many countries, companies, and individuals have already implemented these safety measures. That’s a step in the right direction, erring on the side of caution.
