Thermal Cameras inside the Masjid al-Haram
It is also worth noting that Thermal cameras have been installed in the Grand Mosque. These thermal cameras have been monitored by Sheikh Al-Sudais and are set up at the entrance of the mosques. These allow monitoring the COVID-19 infected by accurately scanning the temperatures of 25 people in a single time.
Commenting on the Thermal cameras, Sheikh commented that it would allow ensuring that all healthy people enter the Grand Mosque by indicating the sick on the device. Earlier similar cameras and devices have been placed at the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina.
