According to the health site, this information is false.
“To should protect yourself against the new coronavirus, you should frequently clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water,” the health body says.
There is also uncertainty surrounding the effectiveness of thermal scanners in detecting people infected with the new coronavirus.
WHO says: “Thermal scanners are effective in detecting people who have developed a fever (i.e. have a higher than normal body temperature) because of infection with the new coronavirus.”
It adds: “However, they cannot detect people who are infected but are not yet sick with fever. This is because it takes between 2 and 10 days before people who are infected become sick and develop a fever.”
