An important indicator for an infection is increased body temperature (compared to other people in the immediate surroundings), generally known as fever.

In addition, thermography (which involved the usage of thermal scanning to detect temperatures) is an ideal method for scanning large flows of people for their temperature.

So to do this, the temperature at the inner corner of the eye is measured, and an alarm triggered if an abnormality is detected. Hence, this allows persons with increased body temperature to be identified quickly and reliably, and to be isolated for more exact testing.
