Basically all these at this price point are made in China.
We reviewed the category and even the US made ones for $400+ were not sufficient to meet my required criteria for precision. My Director of Nursing agreed. They are typically variable by +/- 0.6 degrees F or worse. Compare that with +/- 0.1 for oral and rectal probes. +/- 0.2 for oral disposable temp strips.

Meaning if an airport or office or store is foolish enough depend on infrared tech then a person with Fever (defined as 100 degrees F) could read as 99.4 degrees and be allowed in to infect rest of staff. A big city airport that depended on such devices had 200 staff in ONE airline terminal become sick in 2020. A local truck depot had 32 staff become infected. 20 employees in a single supermarket and who knows how many customers.

America lost 650,000 people. Partly because a lot of people do not bother to research and understand the tools they depend on to try to save lives. We have become 4th in the world in creating orphans due to COVID.
