US Surgeon General Unwittingly Showcases Sanctioned Dahua Temperature System

By: Sean Patton and Charles Rollet, Published on Jul 28, 2020

The US' top public health spokesperson, the Surgeon General, posted a photo of himself being screened by a Dahua Thermal Temperature Station during a recent visit to Miami in an unwitting showcase, if not endorsement, of the product.

The Office of the Surgeon General told IPVM the photo is in "no way an endorsement" of Dahua, a company sanctioned by the US government for human rights abuses, banned for federal usage, and starting next month banned for using federal funds and for federal contractors.

The incident showcases the rapid rise of fever 'terminals' despite their accuracy issues and US sanctioned manufacturers. In this article, we examine this in-depth, including:
