By John Honovich and Zach Segal, Published Jan 06, 2021, 08:55am EST

An 'innovative' solution that detects temperatures 'in the middle of a crowd' is being promoted by Thales, a European technology company. Indeed, Thales says NHS Scotland is testing it.

However, IPVM found significant concerns in the claims Thales made and Thales responded to IPVM, confirming that NHS Scotland is not testing 'crowd' temperature detection.
