KUWAIT CITY, Feb 16: Head of the volunteer team implementing health regulations at the Ministry of Education Khalifa Ja’afar confirmed that “the ministry has installed three thermal cameras at the main entrances,” indicating all visitors and employees are examined before entering the building daily, reports Al-Jarida daily.
Speaking to the daily, Ja’afar pointed out the installation of thermal cameras is a confirmation of the ministry’s keenness to control entry to the building in order to prevent those exhibiting corona symptoms like high temperature from entering to protect public health and guarantee the safety of everyone.
He affirmed “the ministry will not be negligent in implementing the health regulations.” He added the three main entrances are currently being monitored through the thermal cameras linked with computers and display screens.
In this manner, the employees can monitor the temperature of anyone entering the building, and those who do not wear facemasks are not allowed to enter, he explained. He disclosed the ministry issued a circular stating the punitive measures for any employee who violates the health regulations, such as salary deduction and other legal steps in the event of continuing non-compliance.
