Border Control Solutions for COVID-19

The world has become a very connected place over the past 50 years, and this change has led to an unprecedented era of economic growth and prosperity. However, the accessibility of international travel also enables the rapid spread of pathogens from country to country.

However, the rapid onset of the global Covid-19 pandemic underscores the need for controls at the border. Travelers quickly carried the virus to practically every corner of the globe, and many governments were forced to shut down borders in order to contain the outbreak. Despite early restrictions on travel, the U.S. still found itself in the grips of a nationwide pandemic. Now, border authorities are scrambling to respond to the crisis. Governments need to identify infected individuals at the border and take proper steps to contain them. Otherwise, hotspots will continue to crop up throughout the country.

Innovative technology enables security forces to deploy resources more efficiently and, most importantly, perform their duties with greater effectiveness.
