    As Uganda continues to ease the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, new procedures are being put in place to reduce the possible spread of the virus.

    Along with social distancing, hand sanitization, and wearing masks, temperature screening is one of the requirements before entry into shopping malls, hotels, restaurants or hospitals.

    A Chinese firm, ENGO Holdings Limited, located in the central Ugandan district of Mukono, has started assembling smartphones that have an infrared thermometer.

    ... Okwere said the phone is currently going through an approval process by the country's standards agency, Uganda National Bureau of Standards.

    He said preliminary tests have shown that the phone takes accurate temperatures without going through recalibration all the time.

    Evelyn Anite, state minister for investment, told Xinhua in an interview that the development of the device is good news for Uganda and Africa especially at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic is increasing.
