Aside from airport screening when there were actually international flights to get on I don't know of anywhere where they're conducting temperature screening domestically. If it was such a game changer then you'd think it would be going on everywhere.
It could be because it's ineffective:
''Under generally conservative assumptions on sensitivity, we find that 46 of 100 infected travellers will enter undetected.....For example, when entry screening was implemented in Australia in response to the 2003 SARS outbreak, 1.84 million people were screened, 794 were quarantined, and no cases were confirmed''
A massive game changer, and relatively straight forward to implement wholesale.
While you allowing people who 'probably know they are ill' into places where hundreds could be affected must be the absolute pits even in an entirely ridiculous stance.
So thats fine then for them to mingle as long as they already know they have a temperature?
.. Let alone all the people who don't actually realise.
Nurses are not being tested
Shop assistants are not being tested
and those screen the shop assistants have will be a help. but temperature checks would be a bigger one.
Apart from the people who are reportedly arriving at their holiday homes in the West Country and possibly other places and could be taking the virus with them.
