​COVID‑19 detection trials have landed at Heathrow

Heathrow Airport announced this week the launch of COVID‑19 detection trials.

The Airport has started trialling technologies and processes which could form the basis of a Common International Standard for health screening at all global airports. 

The aim of the collective measures being trialled is to reduce the risk of contracting or transmitting COVID‑19 while travelling.

Trials include facial recognition thermal screening technology to accurately track body temperature; UV sanitation, which could be used to quickly and efficiently sanitise security trays; and contact‑free security screening equipment to reduce person‑to‑person contact.
