ISRAEL - Automatic Body Temperature Check

Arno Froese

An Israeli company is offering a solution to scan the temperature of a large number of people entering a facility in a limited amount of time. That could be extremely effective as countries are starting to lift restrictions imposed to contain the coronavirus outbreak.

Israel, for example, has begun to allow activities that have large crowds of people gathering in a specific location to resume.

“We have many partners all over the world, among other countries in China, where they are already in a more advanced phase in the battle against the coronavirus, including in finding solutions for the post-lockdown phase,” ASI Technologies CEO Kobi Ventura said. “One of them has developed a special gate that measures the body temperature of people, suitable for facilities that are accessed by many in a short amount of time, like shopping malls, stadiums and even military bases.”

“We also offer another solution called ‘thermopad,’ a small device similar to a tablet that can measure the temperature and features a face-recognition technology, suitable for factories or office buildings where employers need to take the temperatures of the workers,” he added. 

The gate is already in use in several countries, including China, Germany, the United Kingdom and Mexico, Ventura said. In Israel, ASI Technologies is in talks with several potential customers, including shopping malls, office towers and military facilities, he said.

The gate does not present any potential breach of people’s privacy, since the infrared cameras only measure their temperature, he said., 6 May 2020

Arno's Commentary

The bottom line still is: identity of individuals, including face recognition technology, which simply adds up to every person on planet earth being identified.

This calls our attention to the first coming of Jesus, even before His birth. The last sentence of Luke 2:1, in the government translation reads, “…that all the world should be taxed” (in the CEV, “…all the people to be listed in record books”; ESV, “…should be registered”; GNB, “…ordered a census”). If coronavirus carries a message, it could well be the announcement of the completion of the Church on earth and her subsequent rapture into the presence of the Lord.
