How did she get pass the guard doing the fever test at Central Festival. 

 

All these 'measures' don't seem to be effective if it is not done properly.

You don't always get a fever with COVID-19. It's just one of many possible symptoms.

  The heat checks are usually done at the mall entrance , right under the aircon unit , I wonder whether that would effect the result ?

I thought I read that the two girls already had symptoms while in Myanmar. They must have taken Panadol then to reduce the fever.

Those temperature guns are completely useless - they always show significantly lower temperature than actual. She could easily have a fever and get by. And that's not even accounting for medication like ibuprofen which will lower your temperature enough to pass any check.
