Scanning for Fever

You'll be on video at Narita International Airport in Tokyo, but not for security purposes. An infrared camera scans incoming international passengers looking for people who may have a fever! Those who show signs of a fever are interviewed and may be given medical treatment. Link

I saw this in Hong Kong two or three years ago.
I'm glad I got to fly business class from SFO otherwise I might have been sweaty enough from flying economy to set off the alarms anyway :-D

They were doing the same thing at the Tocumen airport in Panama City in May 09, but not when I went back last week... And they wouldn't let you keep the pictures, I asked.
