Jamshedpur, April 26: In view of the recent spike in Covid-19 cases, railway authorities have implemented thermal screening measures at Tatanagar railway station. The move is part of a wider effort to curb the spread of the virus and ensure the safety of passengers.
According to officials, the thermal screening process involves the use of infrared thermometers to check the body temperature of passengers. Anyone with a fever or other symptoms of Covid-19 will be immediately isolated and tested for the virus.
The new measures have been welcomed by passengers, who see them as a necessary step towards protecting public health. Many have expressed their gratitude to railway authorities for taking proactive steps to prevent the spread of the virus.
However, some have also raised concerns about the effectiveness of thermal screening as a preventive measure. While it can identify individuals with a fever, it may not be able to detect asymptomatic carriers of the virus. Experts recommend that other measures, such as mask mandates and social distancing guidelines, be implemented in conjunction with thermal screening to provide a comprehensive approach to Covid-19 prevention.
