Argentina: The Caterpillar Cell Phone’s Thermal Camera Detects Human Temperature: Tool Against the Coronavirus?, April 29, 2020, quotes from Caterpillar:

These two telephones have the capacity to read temperature at much greater distances than those recommended by health authorities around the world. In general, in the case of COVID-19, it has been said that people should maintain a social distance of 1.8 m, but the two devices far exceed this figure, allowing the thermal camera to operate with great precision.

All physical objects, including people, emit infrared energy. This can be detected using a thermal camera, with different surface temperatures visualized and represented as different colors on a screen. The technology requires neither natural light nor physical contact with the person or object in order to detect heat.

This makes thermal image capture and ideal technology for the initial detection of groups or lines of people that pass by a thermal camera. Given that high temperatures can be a symptom of illness, a different color will be shown on the screen in comparison with the normal skin temperature. This allows for rapidly identifying individuals displaying elevated temperatures with ease and without interaction.

Argentina: Companies Launch Donation Campaigns to Fight Against COVID-19, April 8, 2020, quotes from Dahua:

As the headquarters is in the epicenter, where the waters are calmest, they have begun to manage these situations, such as launching this plan of international solidarity.

There are various levels to the campaign. On the one hand, we make a technological donation, such as the thermal cameras currently used to take temperature in various East Asian countries and that are now arriving to Latin America—today the first arrived in Panama.

We are also considering the option to make donations of essential food and hygiene items for homeless individuals. It's in process. The idea is to make it reach doctors and people that need it.
