IPVM Scientific Study Published by Journal of Biomedical Optics Shows Systematic Temperature Screening Manipulation

By Conor Healy, Published Mar 14, 2021, 04:05pm EDT

In a new peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics, IPVM researchers found that devices from 7 different manufacturers systematically manipulate temperature readings regularly reporting fever-level temperatures as normal. Watch the video to learn more:

The title of the study is "Globally deployed COVID-19 fever screening devices using infrared thermographs consistently normalize high readings to afebrile range":

Moreover, the Washington Post published a story on this: Those fever scanners that everyone is using to fight covid can be wildly inaccurate, researchers find.
