There will be a gap in the immediate detection of the spread of Coronavirus once the world eventually opens the lockdowns (stay at home orders).

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

The Chinese Police seems to have embraced wearing helmets equipped with a plethora of futuristic technology. The Shenzhen-based Kuang-Chi Technology introduced police smart helpers that have infrared cameras attached to the N901 helpers that enable the seared to measure body temperatures from up to 5 meters away. In addition to the infrared cameras, the helmet is also equipped with AR glasses, WiFi, 5G, Bluetooth etc. that will enable facial recognition. These helmets are currently being used in Shanghai and some other Chinese cities since its introduction last November.
