Malasitapu Secondary School and Naoyuki Soga, in partnership with the Summit237 have donated two thermal imaging cameras to the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO), to be used by health authorities at the airport.
The camera thermal technology would be able to detect body temperature change in people and is expected to play a vital role in monitoring signs of COVID-19 virus in people passing through the airport. They will be used to scan temperature from a safe distance, and if a fever — a common coronavirus symptom. The camera displays color-coded with different colors indicating different temperatures.
The high technology camera was part of a donation of medical supplies which also included 10,000 medical masks and 312 hand sanitizers.
These donations were made possible through a partnership between the Emmanuel Presbyterian Church in South Korea and Malasitapu Presbyterian Church.
The Director of NDMO acknowledged the contribution and support from Malasitapu School in partnership with the Korean Church
