Experts say that there is no data to show that temperature checks have helped prevent the transmission of the virus. Thus, it has no value and should be stopped.

The idea of ​​testing body temperature to filter out suspected cases is of the epidemic episode of the 2000s. Measuring temperature at that time was a reliable indicator as 83 percent of those infected with SARS infection had fever.

But the temperature test during this time is of almost no use. One study stated that less than half of the population had fever due to SARS-CoV2 (coronavirus) infection. And people suffering from infections are often contagious even before they start showing any symptoms.

In fact, the most vulnerable people (over 65 years of age) and asymptomatic do not experience fever in most cases.
