Body temperature

Introduce infrared devices that measure your body temperature. Ideally these would be located in bathrooms of buildings open to the public as well as pubs, shops etc. or have a small designated area where a device can be set up if there's space to do so.

Why the contribution is important

This idea proved to be effective in countries where coronavirus was successfully handled (e.g. Taiwan).

    I do not see why you would have sensors in public bathrooms. Have sensors at doors to public buildings, malls, leisure facilities etc. I lived in South East Asia during SARS and H1N1 and that is where they were placed. When I went to my office they had temp sensors at main entrance to my office block and everyone had their temp checked.

    Introduce temperature control measures at public places, workplaces, schools etc when opening back up.

    Not great for people who run a temperature most of the time because of inflammatory disease or for people who experience hot flushes because of menopause or medications.
