In response to a question about the accuracy of the temperature survey of the helmet, Dr. Ji Guo said that the accuracy was 96 percent after the company conducted extensive testing..

Professor Davy Jones from Bangor University, who led a research project on the spread of corona virus in the cruise ship (Diamond Princess): “At least 25 percent of the ship’s passengers had no symptoms at all, so they obviously don’t have a fever“.
