Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Saturday installed modern thermal scanner at Islamabad airport for passengers coming from abroad in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus cases in Pakistan.

Newly installed thermal scanner will automatically check fever and flu and more passengers will be scanned in less time. The scanner is able to evaluate suspicious coronavirus patients with 100 per cent accuracy.

National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) last month announced to import three thermal scanners aimed at tackling coronavirus airports. Imported scanners will also be made available at the airports in Karachi and Lahore.

Meanwhile, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has strict safety measures at all airports of Pakistan following the emergence of two confirmed coronavirus cases in Pakistan.

The CAA has also made submission of health declaration form mandatory for flight attendants and all cabin crew of private/national airlines.
