Research background: In 2020, a pandemic of COVID-19 has started. One of the symptoms is that a person has an elevated body temperature. One of the preventive measures against the spread of COVID-19 is the body temperature measuring. But this does not immediately mean, that person´s elevated body temperature indicates the presence of COVID-19. It also does not mean, that a person with COVID-19 must have fever. In generally, there is accepted a preventive measure to measure a body temperature, that can help to detect an infected person. The demands for body temperature measuring devices has increased. One of these devices is the thermal security cameras (TSC).
Purpose of the article: The aim of this paper is to point out the increased use of the TSC during the global pandemic of COVID-19. At the same time, it is necessary to point out the real benefits of using these devices in relation to global trend and significant economic impacts on society.
Methods: The analysis of available materials and data of the implementation of the TCS in relation to COVID-19 crisis. There are case studies elaborated on two manufacturing companies with different approaches to the implementation of preventive measures.
Findings & Value added: Firstly, the increased demand for protecting and preventive measures have an impact on the extreme increase in prices for these technologies compared to the pre-pandemic period. Secondly, accepted protecting and safety measures, such as TSC, do not have the expected benefits in relation to COVID-19.
Key words: global impacts / COVID-19 / body temperature measurement / thermal security camera / increasing the protection of society
