Using Cameras To Control Virus Outbreaks

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Apr 08, 2014

More than 600 people got sick on a massive cruise ship outbreak in January 2014. While that might have been a record, it is a serious ongoing problem. Every year about a dozen cruise ships have outbreaks. Though it might not get as much attention as people falling overboard, it is a far more common problem.

Now, a maritime health organization is calling for cameras on ships to also be used for infection control in addition to security.

In this note, we review the report and how cameras can help contain an outbreak.
