The ‘thermometer gun,’ used in the front line of the outbreak, is known as firing.
For weeks, these ominous-looking devices have been deployed at checkpoints across China – tollbooths, apartment complexes, hotels, grocery stores, train stations – to force government officials and non-citizens to spread the deadly coronavirus.
However, experts say that the incidence of “thermometer guns” is less likely to stop.
Thermometers determine the temperature by measuring the heat generated from the surface of a person’s body. Often, however, equipment operators do not hold it close enough to the subject’s forehead, produce low-temperature readings or close proximity, and receive higher lessons like dust on the roadside, or in certain environments when someone is taking drugs to suppress fever.

A musical boot camp removes the spirits of a talented young violinist.
Antia Creston, a acclaimed American violinist who has been teaching via Skype once a week since last summer, gifted Chinese Yunhe Tang lessons, but this month, something bad happened: he didn’t practice, and he always practiced.
The teen, who likes the name Kevin, lives in Chengdu, the dozens of Chinese cities that are effectively locked up because of the coronary virus crisis. Schools were closed month-long and most businesses are struggling to reopen. Kevin’s family is healthy, but he is mostly stuck inside.
Mrs Creston said she couldn’t stop thinking about Kevin, and decided it would help take her mind off the lockdown. He messaged his family and asked if they would like to extend Kevin’s lesson at no cost. Until he was locked inside the house, he wanted to interact with him daily and run a sort of homeless boot camp. The family agreed.
Kevin’s challenge was to learn a new concerto – Laloo’s “Symphony Espagnol” – within a few weeks, what he said usually took 100 days. Mrs. Creston also gave him daily exercises to practice.
Entering boot camp in two weeks, Kevin is feeling a lot better, even though he wants the outdoors. He now practices four hours a day and says that his technique has improved and his voice has gotten better.
“The virus is terrible, but the music gives us the confidence to overcome it,” said Kevin.
