A new thermal camera and five other specialised devices should help the Defence Ministry fight the coronavirus pandemic.

They received devices from the National Union of Employers (RÚZ), the TASR newswire reported.

The hospitals managed by the Defence Ministry and the armed forces will continue to use the devices after the pandemic is over.

“I’m very glad that the employers decided to show that they do not only ask for assistance for their employees to keep jobs, but also offer help,” PM Igor Matovič (OĽaNO) said, as quoted by TASR.

The thermal camera can measure body temperature en masse, at a rate of 100 people per minute. RÚZ also gifted five hydrogen and oxygen generators, which help treat respiratory diseases.
