Kanombe airport now has a huge screen that is used to detect a fever from the incoming passengers. This is one of the measures put at the airport as ways of fighting Coronavirus. 

Passengers coming through Kanombe international airport undergo mandatory checks and give information about where they are from before being given the hand sanitizer to use. 

Nurses are also at standby to should any of the cameras detect anyone with unusual temperatures.

Some of the passengers applauded the measures put in place to fight coronavirus. 

Dr José Nyamusore Division Manager Epidemic Surveillance and Response at the Rwanda biomedical center says that technology has proved to be very effective when it comes to testing the virus. 

He said: "We use technology via the cameras which have sensors which detect the fever if you have any, it is indicated on the screens. if the fever is about 38 degrees then the passenger is put aside and asked questions before they are tested. To date however there are no reports of coronavirus in the country," 

In Africa, Coronavirus has been detected in Senegal, Nigeria, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt. 

Over 90,000 people in 72 countries across the globe have been tested positive for the virus.  In china lone about 80 thousand have been reported sick with over 3000 people dead. 

World Bank has donated $12 billion to help find a vaccine and cure for this.
