Westminster’s safety division reports receiving a record level of enquiries from around the world.
In response to cases of the so-called swine influenza, now referred to as A(H1N1), reported in various countries – including Mexico, United States of America, the United Kingdom and Canada, the Director-General of the World Health organisation recently raised the current level of influenza pandemic alert from phase 4 to phase 5.
This has led to travel and health officials in many countries throughout the world being required to look for reliable and cost effective solutions to rapidly scan individuals in airports, sea ports and other key points of entry for symptoms of swine flu, such as fever-level temperature.
Westminster’s portable WG520 Flu Fever Screening Detection System identifies persons who may be suffering from common influenza, SARS and other flu variants such as Avian flu, Swine flu, etc. and is recognised by many as the ideal solution – being an effective, rapidly deployable and low cost solution.
The typical symptoms of influenza are fever, coughing, sore throat, body aches and an increased body temperature.
The portable WG520 Flu Fever Screening Detection System identifies when a person’s body temperature exceeds a predetermined threshold.
People who indicate above-normal temperatures can be safely isolated for more conclusive testing, thereby containing the spread of disease.
With the recent pandemics of Avian Flu/Bird Flu/Asian Flu and Swine Flu, Face Masks have become a more common method to help prevent the spread of Airborne viral diseases.
