Taiyuan Wusu International Airport completed installation of three infrared temperature detectors in its T2 terminal building on Feb 6 -- to cope with the return rush of workers amid the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak, according to local officials. 

The airport has bought 13 infrared temperature detectors. These will carry out more quick and accurate temperature measurements of people entering and leaving terminal buildings than the handheld temperature measuring devices used before. 

Officials said that Taiyuan Airport Terminal Management Department will step up coordination and communications with equipment manufacturers and will complete the installation and use of the other 10 infrared temperature detectors as soon as possible.

Since the beginning of the fight against the epidemic, Taiyuan airport has set up 11 temperature measurement screening sites in its terminal buildings.
