Malaysian tech firm acquires China COVID-19 thermal-imaging system

A Malaysian tech company has brought in thermal imaging solutions as another weapon in the war against the COVID-19 pandemic originating in Wuhan, China.

In a press release, the firm said that the system from China’s SenseTime can identify individuals with elevated body temperatures, even among those wearing face masks.

This means that the system’s operators are provided with a full range of epidemic prevention information such as body temperature, mask-wearing status, and identity recognition while lowering the risk of physical contact.

It was noted that all these benefits combined make SenseTime’s technology the ideal solution for institutions, government and private offices, buildings, malls, hotels, airports and transportation hubs, schools and public vicinities.

Already, the Chinese tech firm’s Nebula-ITMDT and Thunder-E Thermal Imaging Solutions have been used in multiple locations throughout China — including the Beijing International Airport — and around the world with great efficiency and effectiveness.

The firm has recently installed the Thunder-E system in Istana Negara and Dubai International Airport and has also received requests by Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB), according to the company’s Chief Executive Officer.

Technology – the weapon of choice in the battle against COVID-19

According to another article, Madison Technologies has launched CovCT, an independent contact tracing platform that hopes to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The platform, which kick-started in Malaysia on 27 March 2020 allows communities to practice social responsibility and provides timely data to healthcare practitioners to better assist them to treat potential patients.

With the Movement Control Order (MCO) issued by the Malaysian government to curb the spread of COVID-19, Malaysians are encouraged to stay at home, socially distance themselves, and undergo self-quarantine for 14 days if they have returned from abroad. Only one individual from each household is allowed to leave their home to purchase essential items.

During this period, contact tracing is key in controlling the spread of the disease. Though tedious and time-consuming, it is necessary to identify individuals to seek care at the fastest speed possible to allow medical intervention or quarantine scenarios.

The firm developed CovCT in a bid to provide authorities from different countries a solution to gather information on the movement and spread of the virus.

If contact tracing is done well, it provides an early indicator of how best to plan and allocate scarce resources such as ICU beds, respirators, and medication, the CEO of Madison Technologies stated.

For a good contact tracing data to be gathered, everyone in their respective communities must do their part.

CovCT is an easy-to-use system that allows users to enter information as soon as they scan a CovCT QR code at any of the locations that have enlisted on the platform. As more locations come on board, more valuable information can be gathered. This could help health authorities across the globe stave off this pandemic.

The CovCT platform is also designed to protect the safety of all personal data. The data collected will be stored privately and anonymised on the platform and will not be shared with any individuals, businesses or the locations where the users have checked in.

Instead, the data will be held in trust until requested by relevant local authorities who will, with their respective contact tracing protocols choose to contact these users.

Building management, business owners and even community leaders from across the globe can participate in this movement by registering their venue on the CovCT website. Upon registration, a CovCT kit will be provided which includes instructions and the unique QR Code poster.

This can be printed and placed around the surrounding area of the registrant’s location. QR codes provided are unique to each location.

For businesses with multiple outlets in various locations, you will need to register all your locations and receive individual CovCT kits.

It is encouraged that the locations ensure all visitors check-in and make any contact tracing effort more manageable for health authorities across the globe.
