Heathrow to start temperature screening trials this week

Heathrow will start temperature screening trials on Thursday, designed to identify travellers who might have coronavirus.

Thermal imaging cameras mounted on tripods will automatically scan everyone who flies into the terminal, Sky News reports.

If screening is deemed successful, it could be expanded to departure halls and connection areas.

Heathrow chief executive John Holland-Kaye has said the new measures could be 'key to minimising transmission of Covid-19 across borders'.

He also urged the Government to begin planning for restarting travel between 'low-risk' countries as lockdown measures are eased.
