Those who have a travel history to any foreign country and show symptoms of respiratory distress including coughing, runny nose, sore throat, difficulty in breathing and temperature over 37.3 degrees Celsius.

including all Thai's pouring back in from SK , Japan , UAE over the last mth or so ? who should have been quarantined and tested on arrival ..

Patients in medical facilities who show symptoms of respiratory distress and have temperature over 37.5 degrees Celsius, as well as fitting either one of the following criteria: Having a career that involves public contact, having been to crowded areas, used to be in contact with a Covid-19 patient. All patients in medical facilities who have pneumonia will also get a free Covid-19 test.

Surely anyone in Hoz' with any form of respiratory ailment should have been tested on admission knowing that is what the virus attacks .. 

Same pneumonia which is known to develop as a direct consequence of C V so there again would you not test someone with pneumonia symptoms for C V on admission ..

Those involved in cluster group cases, be they at least three medical staff or five people who are from the same place, and show symptoms of respiratory infection but test negative for any type of flu

They are being too selective about this now .. All medi' staff treating people should be tested as a matter of course and regularly .. this 3 or 5 or tested for other flu's is too hit and miss .. Cost of the test's got anything to do with such a selective approach ? even though they had to mention it is free to those eligible .. 

which is tacky ..

Don't waste time on half measures.  Just plan to test everyone.  This might come back year after year.

That funny squelchy noise you can hear is vax king "Chill" Bill Gates rubbing his sweaty hands in glee.

I would never walk into any place and freely give them a opportunity to cage me, because some cheap Chinese thermomitor said I was in fever range.  But many would, just because its free? I believe many will be selectively removed from society, soon, by using this "toy"weapon.

37.3 degrees is now a potential Covid sympton? Strewth - many people get to that temperature by walking from the car park in the midday sun into Tesco or Makro!


"A fever is usually when your body temperature is 37.8C or higher" (UK NHS guidelines)



good point. another thing is infection can also cause a drop in temperature aka hypothermic  as in hypothermic sepsis.  i usually register 35 on the big c thermal camera but never questioned
