Improve temperature scanning

I support temperature scanning as a strategy to control the spread of the virus.

We can build up the infrastructure to allow people to be scanned a few times each day and to go for a covid test if they have a temperature above 37.5 degrees.

At present, the temperature scanning is done mostly by guards. The scanning can be done by self service kiosks that can be located at bus interchanges, MRT stations, malls, markets and commercial buildings.

A person who has a high temperature should be advised to go to a special clinic to carry out a covid test. These clinics should be made available in many locations, e.g. at community centers. They can be manned by specially trained staff.

Instead of asking people to carry out temperature scanning, it is more useful for these people to be trained and deployed to carry out covid tests.

These special clinics can also carry out the tests for essential workers. They can be tested at frequent intervals. They can also carry out the tests for people who are identified by the Trace Together platform to be close contacts of infected persons.

If we focus on temperature scanning, we can drop the practice of safe entry recording. This practice is largely wasteful and useless and diverts attention from the more important work.

Some people argue that safe entry recording and its associated contact tracing can identify people who are asymptomatic. The temperature scanning works only with people who have developed symptoms of possible covid infection.

In my view, it is safe to stop the safe entry recording. It is largely useless in identifying the asymptomatic cases. This can be evidenced by the hundred of million of safe entry records that have been taken. I suspect that very few of these records have resulted in successful contract tracing.

I also hold the view that the asymptomatic cases are mild and do not spread the infection. There is a very low risk in ignoring this useless and wasteful activity.

I might be wrong in holding this view. It is for the people in charge to demonstrate that the safe entry recording is producing useful results. So far, I have not seen any report on this matter.

Here is a summary of my proposal:

* Provide unmanned kiosks for people to take their temperature scanning
* Set up special clinics for covid tests at many convenient locations
* Stop the safe entry recording.

Do you agree?

  • TKL friends run away:

    TKL has nothing useful to write? He is the “after events” talking man, so no common sense? Everyday all the rewind rubbish.
    Here is proof that he don’t know and talk nonsense.

    What will happen to those asymptomatic if they get older or their immune system changed or weakened? We know that C19 death is a horrible way to die.

    Where is your proof of mild, what is mild when even scientists have no concrete evidence or test conducted.

    So, it is apparent that;

    TKL wants to be the center of attraction, using TRE as his platform and TRE has nothing better gossip or news to offer to readers.

    TKL wants to be somebody he is not, trying to impress people with his flawed and common NO knowledge.

    Knowingly that the authorities may ignore him, TKL no choice but to write his nonsense proposals and suggestion to TRE? instead of to the authorities.

    hahahahaha LOL.

  • No one Appreciate TKL:

    From the many responses to TKL posts;

    It is apparently obvious, if he is too senile enough to feel or know that;

    NO ONE APPRECIATE TKL AND ALL HIS NONSENSES COMMON NO SENSE PIECES HERE.

    Why I said this;

    The question is – Is he really trying to help the communities or he is helping and promoting himself using TRE and social medias?

    Example;

    Those claims he made but no where to be seen in practice surely aren’t helping anyone at all but as I have alleged – ONLY HIMSELF;

    1. His developed one card system
    2. His similar “token” Apps.

    In case he is really already senile, I will repeat it here;

    NO ONE APPRECIATE TKL AND ALL HIS NONSENSES COMMON NO SENSE PIECES HERE.

  • PAP mandate strong:

    Unmanned. No enforcer ?

    People will walk right pass as if your kiosk is glass or air.

    Why Macdonald now so strict need to ensure patrons scan QR code before entry but other fast food need not or close one eye.
    Because Mac tio one time covid case and most probably penalized.

    No enforcer cannot.

    All sg tourists back from overseas passing through custom, all will walk green lane unless item very obvious.

  • Harder Truths:

    TKL, I know where to take your temperature with a big thermometer.
    Hint : it is not your mouth.

  • TRE to be blame:

    Not surprising, tomorrow another same nonsense from TKL with TRE allowing him to continue his defiance regardless of Readers discontent.

  • Folksy Tan not too bad lah:

    No one Appreciate TKL: NO ONE APPRECIATE TKL AND ALL HIS NONSENSES COMMON NO SENSE PIECES HERE.

    TKL is not the worst writer in TRE. He does come up with some good ideas now and then.

  • TRE to be blame:

    @Foksy Tan not too bad lah;

    Not the worst but the harmful one?

    It is a measure of how defiantly and repeatedly loose “unqualified” and carelessness in representation, much like a false prophet or plastic sharman when public health of the community is of concern here.

    And that is very much unacceptable already.
